Recent foreclosures in our area led to several dogs being set loose in our neighborhood. Our hearts were broken to see these homeless dogs hunting for any scrap they could get from garbage cans.
As a neighborhood, we got together and formed an informal dog rescue group, where we fed and cared for these abandoned animals until they could be rehomed.
One consideration we had when undertaking this venture was cost, so we needed to find a safe, nutritious, tasty food that was budget friendly. After the dogs got a checkup with the local vet, we asked for guidance as to dog foods, and off we went shopping for our new “guests”.
For the tiny Chihuahua and little Terrier mix we fostered, Beneful‘s Incredibites dry food perfectly fit the bill. Especially made for smaller size dogs, Sammie and Trixie loved the Incredibites dry chicken and beef varieties, and before long their coats were shiny and we couldn’t keep up with their energy.
The elder Siberian Husky, Lucy, had special needs, as she suffers from tooth loss. We were so worried she wouldn’t eat, but one whiff of Beneful.com‘s chopped meals had her eagerly heading for her bowl. She loves all of Beneful’s wet food varieties; (https://www.beneful.com/products/wet-dog-food/) however, I do think she enjoyed the turkey with sweet potato, brown rice and spinach the best. They say dog don’t see color, but she would happily wag her tail each time she saw the blue topped container, anticipating her lovely dinner.
Once they were used to digesting regular meals again, we added a daily treat to their diet. Beneful’s Healthy Smile Dental Ridges, gave the little ones’ teeth a workout and Lucy enjoyed Beneful’s Heartfuls, as they are oven-baked, shortbread dog treats with soft, apple flavored centers. Not too hard or too soft, they were just right for her.
Thanks to Beneful (and a little love from our neighborhood rescue group), all of these dogs went to good homes. The new owners were pleased to know that the dogs just love Beneful, a trusted brand that is available right on the local Wal-Mart supermarket shelf.
