My 9 year old Australian cattle dog, Kiwi, is getting bit bit gimpy so I figured she needed some glucosamine. I bought her Zuke’s HipAction with Glucosamine and Chondroitin – peanut butter formula with fresh blueberries, apples, carrots, flax seed and whole grains. Sounds so good, I want to eat them myself!
Anyway, Zukes is based in Durango, Colorado. The front of the treat bag states that “Zuke’s donates a portion of profits to the Dog & Cat Cancer Fund.” Reading more on the back, it states “I loved my dog, Zuke, so much I named my company for him…Every yeary in memory of Zuke, we donate to the Dog & Cat Cancer Fund. So join us on our journey to Fuel the Love – feed Zuke’s and donate to the DCCF. Signed Patrick Meiering, Founder & Zuke’s Best Friend””
On the Zuke’s website, the DCCF logo is prominently displayed in the lower left corner. The logo also displays that Zuke’s is a Platinum Donor to the Fund. Clicking on it takes you straight the the DCCF site. On their page about the Zuke’s Difference, they state “We take our commitment to animal nutrition very seriously, but always make time for our animals and give back to them whenever we can. That’s why we donate a portion of our profits each year to the Dog and Cat Cancer Fund. So feed Zuke’s and Fuel the Love™”
