Shelter pups enjoy traditional Thanksgiving meal at The Animal Foundation

Local News

LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — The Animal Foundation team members and volunteers made sure their shelter pups had a joyful Thanksgiving today.

The special meals were made with human-grade ingredients, carefully prepared in a way that won’t harm their health.

The Animal Foundation partnered with The Churchill Foundation in a “Thankful Pup” promotion for their 8th annual initiative to make sure all adoptable dogs in the shelter received Thanksgiving meals.

Special Thanksgiving meals were purchased by the public to feed hundreds of participating shelter dogs in the Las Vegas valley.

For only ten dollars, supporters were able to purchase a meal for their personal pets as well as donate a meal to a shelter dog.

This year, Thankful Pup meals sold out within two weeks.

This is a special tradition at The Animal Foundation. Nevada SPCA was another grateful recipient.

“After 8 years, this is by far our most successful Thankful Pup. I’m thrilled to be a part of making the holiday a little brighter for all of these shelter dogs”, said Robyn Reed with The Churchill Foundation.
