Small Dog Wonders Bakery, makers of the Bistro Bites treats for small dogs, announced that it was able to support a number of animal-related charities in 2012, the company's first year in business. The company aims to raise awareness for issues such as pet obesity, creating healthy lifestyles for dogs, animal rescue, pet adoption, and spay and neutering.
Animal organizations that Small Wonders Bakery worked with include Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League in Palm Beach County, Florida, USA, and the Fairfax County Animal Shelter in Virginia, USA, which both provide shelter for lost, homeless and unwanted animals, as well as low cost spay/neuter and other medical care. Lost Dog Rescue Foundation of Virginia and Bichon Frise Rescue of Maryland, USA, both rescue, rehabilitate, shelter, and find homes for unwanted and abused animals, and were also among groups aided by Small Dog Wonders Bakery. Additionally, the company worked with Kibblez of Love, a group that helps struggling families in Florida feed their pets, and the Humane Society of the United States.
New shelter data casts doubt on whether the pet population and pet ownership are truly growing.
While the pandemic caused unprecedented suffering worldwide in 2020, the disruptions to dogs, cats and other pets adoption numbers may normalize in 2021.
