Canidae Pet Foods Inc. will be at the American Kennel Club Meet the Breeds event October 17-18, 2009, at the Javits Center in New York City, where it will help to raise funds for cancer research in pets.
Continuing its mission of supporting responsible pet ownership and helping animals in need, the company will have a charity raffle with all proceeds benefiting cancer research in pets. One grand prize winner each day will receive a Felt X-City 5 bicycle.
Tickets for the raffle are US$2 for one, or US$5 for three. All proceeds, including the cost of the Felt bicycles supplied by Canidae, will be donated to the American Kennel Club Canine Health Foundation for cancer research in pets.
The Meet the Breeds showcase is a chance to get to know 160 breeds of dog and 41 breeds of cat. Each breed will be presented in its own designated space, decorated to reflect its heritage, characteristics and unique attributes as a pet.
While cat trends continue, the pandemic has added to overall slow-growth treatment of the cat food market.
Premiumization and humanization, as well as automation, fueled continued operation growth in spite of the COVID-19 pandemic.
