CANIDAE to Raise Funds for Charity at AKC Meet the Breeds Event

San Luis Obispo, CA (PRWEB) October 9, 2009

CANIDAE Pet Foods, Inc. (, a manufacturer of all natural holistic pet foods that are fed and recommended by thousands of certified breeders and rescue organizations throughout North America, will attend the American Kennel Club Meet the Breeds event on October 17-18, 2009 at the Javits Center in New York City where they will be handing out free product samples, coupons, and helping to raise funds for cancer research in pets.

The largest event of its kind in the world, the Meet the Breeds showcase is a chance to get to know 160 breeds of dog and 41 breeds of cat. Each breed will be presented in its own designated space, decorated to reflect its heritage, characteristics and unique attributes as a pet, while allowing attendees to literally “Meet the Breeds” by petting the dogs, cats, puppies and kittens and learning about them directly from the experts.

The event will also feature demonstrations such as law enforcement K9s, grooming, agility, obedience, an educational cat show, plus booths where the public can come talk to trainers, groomers, vets and other pet experts, one-on-one.

CANIDAE Pet Foods will be at booth 419 for the event which is expected to draw a crowd of over 35,000 dog and cat lovers from across North America. In addition to offering free samples of CANIDAE® dog food, FELIDAE® cat food, and SNAP-BISCUIT® and SNAP-BITS™ gourmet dog treats, CANIDAE has created a special event-only coupon good toward $ 3 off any size bag of CANIDAE or FELIDAE natural, holistic pet foods.

Continuing their mission of supporting Responsible Pet Ownership and helping animals in need, CANIDAE will conduct a charity raffle with all proceeds benefitting cancer research in pets. One grand prize winner each day will each receive a Felt X-City 5 bicycle, valued at $ 500. The X-City-5 is designed for urban riding and is fun to ride no matter what type of abuse the streets dish out.

Tickets for the raffle are $ 2 for one, or $ 5 for three. 100% of all proceeds, including the cost of the Felt bicycles supplied by CANIDAE, will be donated to the American Kennel Club Canine Health Foundation for cancer research in pets. “If you’re in the New York area that weekend, please come visit us and experience this amazing showcase of animals, and buy a raffle ticket to support cancer research,” said Dennis VanEtten, CANIDAE Sales Manager.
