This past week – pet food consumers made history. We reached (and surpassed) our first goal of $10,000 to test pet food.
It is such a remarkable achievement. I’m so proud of all of us.
As of this moment – we have raised $10, 602.00 from 108 pet food consumers. But please know – just because we have reached our initial goal – we aren’t done. If you haven’t donated and would like to – this campaign will remain open for donations through June 6, 2014. And again – all money will go towards purchasing products, shipping, and testing/laboratory charges. All results – negative and positive -will become public information including product names. The more money raised, the more pet foods we can test.
A variety of pet foods will be tested – selected randomly. Equal numbers of cat foods and dog foods, some kibble, some can, some fresh, some frozen. Some foods will be of grocery store quality, some foods will be pet boutique quality. Some foods will be prescription. Our testing is not out to ‘get’ any particular manufacturer – our goal is simply to discover if pet foods manufactured and sold in the U.S. and Canada contain risk and/or illegal ingredients. We are testing pet food solely for the protection of consumers and their pets.
I’ve got a great deal of work ahead of me. I want everyone to know, I take this responsibility very seriously. I will do my very best tackling this challenge. Not every food can be tested, not every possible contaminant can be tested for. We are looking for serious health risks and/or illegal contaminants.
As results come in – with any result that is of risk to a pet – they will be posted immediately (as I receive the results). And all results will be compiled at completion and be provided for all readers.
My sincere thanks to everyone! We’ve made pet food history. The results of our testing could be adding to the history making. Only time will tell what the future will bring.
Wishing you and your pet(s) the best,
