Purina Dog Chow working to help Walnut Creek ARF’s Pets and Vets program

Mackenzie, a 3-year-old pit bull terrier mix, was trained as a service dog through Tony La Russa’s Animal Rescue Foundation and its Pets and Vets program. The dogs are trained by their owners, veterans with PTSD.

The Pets and Vets service dog program at Tony La Russa’s Animal Rescue Foundation in Walnut Creek could get up to $500,000 from Purina Dog Chow, which has launched a two-pronged campaign in support of ARF’s efforts to help veterans and rescue dogs.

Purina has a long history of supporting the U.S. military, and officials with the company said they know the impact service dogs can have on the lives of veterans, providing them with stability and companionship as they readjust to civilian life.

The Dog Chow Service Dog Salute campaign will donate a portion of proceeds from the sale of marked bags of Dog Chow Complete Adult with Chicken food, with up to $250,000 going to ARF.
