Do you love your dog? Do you have a friend or family member who loves their dog? Would you like to help a great cause? If you answered yes to any of those questions, you will want to snag a copy of “Cooking for your dog” by Bruce Carlson. Bellowood Rescue, here in Cedar Springs, is selling the book for $10, as a fundraiser for their organization.
This animal rescue, which focuses mainly on dogs, takes in sick, abandoned, injured and stray dogs. They feed them, get their shots, nurture them back to health, and pay their medical bills before adopting them out. Normally fundraising would go for medical and other needs, but owner Kim Schreuder said they lost their main food source this week (who decided to go with another company) and are now scrambling to raise money for food for the animals.
The book is 88 pages worth of treats, biscuits, main dishes and miscellaneous items that you can make for your dog, that are both fun and healthy. There is even a recipe for treats for diabetic dogs.
If you’d like to buy a copy, or make any kind of donation, please email Kim at firstname.lastname@example.org or call her at (616) 696-2846. You can also find Bellowood Rescue on facebook, and check out their page on the petfinder website at http://members.petfinder.com/~MI214/index.html.
