FreshFit Challenge Milestone #1… HIT!

Because of your hard work, we just passed the 50,000 mile mark and hit Milestone #1 in the Freshpet FreshFit Challenge! This amazing feat has earned 500 healthy meals (provided by Freshpet) for animals in need. You, ResQwalker, ROCK!

Did you know that over 50% of dogs and cats are overweight or obese? On Monday April 4th we kicked off the Freshpet FreshFit Challenge – a digital walkathon to fight pet obesity and to provide healthy meals to shelter animals. Our goal over the 4 week challenge (April 4 – May 1, 2016) is to ResQwalk 200,000 miles – broken up into 4 Milestones – and we just hit Milestone #1  – 50,000 miles ResQwalked!

As an acknowledgement of the hard work of the ResQwalk community, Freshpet is going to provide 500 healthy meals to feed adoptable animals like Betty.

Betty is available for adoption at Bideawee in NYC. She is a sweet, 5-month old Basset Hound mix that wants nothing more than to be loved. She weighs 22 lbs and is expected to be a medium-sized adult.

She is very smart, social, curious and can be best described as “an active puppy who loves to play.”

Betty is looking for a gentle and experienced family that is able to give her lots of exercise, kisses and enrichment. We also recommend group puppy classes for Betty and her furever family.
You can learn more about Betty and other adoptable animals on the Bideawee website or by visiting their Manhattan location at 410 East 38th Street!

About the FreshFit Challenge
The FreshFit Challenge aims to raise awareness about pet obesity and the importance of a fresh diet and an active lifestyle for your pet.
Freshpet believes that all pet food should be made from the same quality ingredients that you would feed your family at home. This means recipes made of fresh meat, fruits and veggies, with no rendered meals or by-products. Freshpet foods are also cooked at lower temperatures to lock in the key nutrients your pets need, without any chemical or artificial preservatives. It’s this commitment to natural, wholesome ingredients that makes Freshpet different from other pet foods.
