San Luis Obispo, CA, November 22, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- Canidae Natural Pet Food Company announced today its support of the Pink Ribbon Puppies 2011 calendar which is being offered for sale to raise funds toward the fight against breast cancer.
"We are thrilled to share with you a wonderful and inspiring project that has been put together by a long-time member of the Canidae breeder program. While the Pink Ribbon Puppies website may appear to be just an adorable site with puppies on it, there is a serious and touching story behind it," wrote Suzanne Alicie, Canidae Responsible Pet Ownership blog author. The complete Canidae RPO blog article about the Pink Ribbon Puppies calendar and website can be found at http://canidaepetfood.blogspot.com/.
The Pink Ribbon Puppies 2011 calendar is a fundraising project for breast cancer research. It features a litter of nine beautiful lab puppies born this past September, all of whom are Canidae fed. When the co-owner of the dam of this litter was diagnosed with breast cancer, it was decided that as much as she was looking forward to the puppies and wanted to be involved, she needed to focus on her healing process and leave the whelping up to the other co-owner. So while she underwent radiation therapy for five days of each week for six weeks, her friend and "co-mommy" began her days with puppy breath as she helped get the puppies off to a great start in life. This litter was quickly dubbed the "Pink Ribbon Litter" by the owner and friends.
Elizabeth Arellano donated her photography skills to create the pink puppy images featured in the calendar, and Canidae Natural Pet Foods donated towards the cost of printing the calendars. All proceeds from the sale of these calendars will be donated to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation®.
"This project is in honor of my friend, all the women who have fought before her, and for those who will take the same path in years to come," said the project's creator.
