Target: Davyd Smith and Jon Pagnozzia, founders of PeopleFud
Goal: Commend PeopleFud for creating healthy dog food and donating a portion of proceeds to save dogs from euthanasia.
PeopleFud started after co-owner Davyd Smith’s Saint Bernard died from cancer at a young age. Committed to finding the cause, he discovered that most pet foods contain low quality, cancer-causing ingredients. He launched the company PeopleFud with his partner Jon Pagnozzia to combat this disturbing trend in dog health. They have received numerous awards for their quality product and donate 20% of their proceeds to saving dogs from euthanasia in animal shelters.
Most dog foods contain animal byproducts and preservatives, which have been linked to numerous health problems in pets, including cancer. Meat in dog food can come from a variety of questionable sources, such as from roadkill, dead, disabled, or dying farm animals, and even zoo animals. Often, the portions of meat obtained from these animals tend to be the scraps and leftovers, so the food contains less protein and nutrients than dogs actually need. This combination of ingredients has caused some researchers to determine that poor diet is causing cancer in pets. Over 50% of dogs develop cancer by the age of 10, while 50 years ago that statistic was significantly lower.
Products like PeopleFud encourage responsible pet ownership and promote pet health by removing all additives from their food and only using human-grade meat, vegetables, and starch. Not only does this company help improve the quality of life for pets, but their donations to organizations such as “Just One Day” and “NoKill Colorado” help to save dogs from unnecessary euthanasia. Please thank PeopleFud for its commitment to the health and welfare of dogs.
Dear Davyd Smith and Jon Pagnozzia,
Thank you for your commitment to the health and welfare of pets. Your company, PeopleFud, helps to combat the growing trend of premature cancer and death in dogs by providing a nutritious alternative to traditional dog food. As you know, many of the ingredients in dog food have been linked to cancer and other health problems for pets, and little is being done to regulate the quality of meat, produce, or amount of preservatives included in these foods. Your company uses only natural meat, vegetables, and starches to promote longevity and health for pets.
Not only are you helping to revolutionize the dog food marketplace, but you are also committed to ending euthanasia in animal shelters. Because you donate a portion of your proceeds to organizations such as “Just One Day” and “No Kill Colorado,” you have helped to save the lives of numerous dogs that would have otherwise been put down. Thank you for creating a company devoted to the health and welfare of dogs.
[Your Name Here]
