American Nutrition, a custom contract pet food and treats manufacturer for branded companies and retailers, announced its sponsorship of the Arizona Friends of Animal Care and Control’s 14th Annual HERO Awards. The event celebrates the heroic efforts of service or personal survival by animals who have acted to save the life of a person, performed services within the community or overcome their own circumstances to survive and thrive against the odds.

American Nutrition is serving as a Pack Leader Sponsor of the HERO Awards event, which is slated to take place at 6 p.m. on March 4, 2017 at the Omni Montelucia Resort and Spa in Scottsdale, Arizona. Proceeds from the event will support the efforts of The Arizona Pet Project.
