NEWMAN’S OWN® ORGANICS GOES TO THE DOGS…AND CATS -
Paul Newman Pledges $100,000 to
Animal Organizations at Launch of Organic Pet Food Line
APTOS, Calif…Newman’s Own Organics announces the
introduction of its new line of premium pet foods for dogs and cats that will
benefit animals’ nutritional health as well as animal related causes.
All of the foods contain certified organic ingredients, including Bell & Evans® Chicken, and organic vegetables and grains. The products do not contain antibiotics, hormones, chemical ingredients or artificial preservatives, colors, or additives. The pet food, like all of Newman’s Own Organics’ products, has been certified by Oregon Tilth. Paul and Nell Newman have chosen to donate all of the charity money generated by the sale of the pet food to organizations that support animals’ well-being.
“Pets have always been a part of our family life,” says Nell Newman, cofounder and president of the organic company. “With the rise in the number of cat and dog problems directly related to poor nutrition, we want to offer pets the same high quality food we buy for ourselves. We’re excited that we have come up with an organic formulation that is nutritious and great tasting for our four-footed friends, while also helping those not so fortunate. This project has been ‘on the table’ for a long time; now, it’s in the bowl where it belongs.”
Paul Newman gives away all his after-tax profits from the royalties from Newman’s Own and Newman’s Own Organics to educational and charitable organizations. The specialty pet retailers participating in the launch of the new line of organic pet food will have the opportunity to help select the ten national animal and animal related organizations receiving the initial $100,000. “We look forward to focusing our donations on animal shelters and animal related services", says Peter Meehan, cofounder and CEO of Newman’s Own Organics.
The following pet charities have been chosen to receive a $10,000 check from Paul Newman:
