Saul's site, www.petfinder.com, is a network of pet shelters and rescue organizations that list pets available for adoption across the country. In her keynote speach, Saul addressed the need for petfood manufacturers to get involved with animal rescue.
She noted some shelters do not have a plan in place for feeding the large amount of pets they take in, many relying on monetary and food donations. One way petfood and treat manufacturers can help is by donating their extra or close-to-expired petfood products to shelters and rescue groups, instead of disposing them.
