Canidae Natural Pet Food has announced its support of the 2011 Pink Ribbon Puppies calendar created to aid in the fight against breast cancer.

The calendar is a fundraising project; funds raised will go toward breast cancer research. "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," said Suzanne Alicie, Canidae Responsible Pet Ownership blog author. "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."

The calendar features a litter of Canidae-fed lab puppies, born in September. When one of the co-owners of the litter's dam was diagnosed with breast cancer, the other co-owner decided to support her friend via this project. More information on the calendar can be found at the Pink Ribbon Puppies website.
