In these lean times it’s nice to giveaway pet food. Hill’s®, the makers of Science Diet®, has developed an all natural pet food line for cats and dogs. Called Ideal Balance™, meat is listed as the first ingredient, and the food is grain-free and contains carrots, peas, and broccoli.
According to the folks at Hill’s®, their customers have been asking for an all natural variety of pet food that doesn’t contain corn or other grains. The new Science Diet® Ideal Balance™ product line includes:
Ideal Balance™ Grain Free Adult Chicken & Potato Dinner dog food
Ideal Balance™ Grain Free Adult Chicken & Potato Dinner cat food
Ideal Balance™ Kitten Chicken & Brown Rice Dinner
Science Diet® Ideal Balance™ Adult Chicken & Brown Rice Dinner for adult cats
Science Diet® Ideal Balance™ Mature Adult Chicken & Brown Rice Dinner for senior cats
These products will be in stores after the New Year. However, nine of you can get one bag by leaving a comment. All names will be entered in Randomizer.com. Each bag is a $49 value (that covers shipping and handling).
Helping Local Shelters
Hill’s® has agreed to donate eight bags of its new all natural food to my local shelter, Jersey Animal Coalition in South Orange, NJ, and another eight bags to Best Friends Animal Society’s Cat Initiatives Program, which keeps cats safe and out of shelters. Janice Dankert, who heads the Initiatives Program does Trap Neuter Return for Southern Utah and Northern Arizona. She and her volunteers feed over 5,000 community cats through the program.
