As part of a larger initiative to educate dog owners on proper nutrition, effective training, and other ways to raise a happy and healthy dog, the Dogington Post reviewed petfood and pet products for its first annual Dogington Post Awards of 2012. Readers voted for the winners, selecting FreeHand as winner of the Best Dry Dog Food category.
FreeHand, a company that launched in June 2012, works to save the lives of abandoned dogs in the communities where its petfood products are sold. For each dog food bag sold, the company donates an equal amount to local shelters and rescues.
“We recognize the significance of this award from the readers of The Dogington Post - and we are honored to have been nominated over the hundreds of other petfoods in the market, many of which are well-established and well-financed brands. This proves the most important point of all - that dog owners buy our product because it is good for their dogs as well as for the lives of rescue dogs in their communities,” said Tom Bagamane, FreeHand’s managing director and co-founder.

Giving back is a significant part of the pet food industry, and companies focused on philanthropy want to make connections, not just donations.
