TEWSKBURY, Mass. and STOCKTON, Calf., Nov. 17, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- In response to an urgent need from California-based animal shelter the Delta Humane Society, Massachusetts-based Wellness Natural Pet Food, has donated upwards of 35,000 pounds of natural cat and dog food via their WellPet Foundation. This donation will be the largest to the humane society, whose supply of pet food was set to run out in one month's time. With this donation, the Delta Humane Society will be able to provide meals for pets in the shelter for almost a year.

"On behalf of the WellPet Foundation, we're happy to donate Wellness Natural Pet Food to the pets of the Delta Humane Society. We're passionate about backing groups that are dedicated to the wellbeing of dogs and cats, and we support thousands of pets in need in communities across the country each year," said Chanda Leary Coutu, Senior Manager, Marketing Communications, for WellPet.

Delta Humane Society director, Patrice Davidson added, "We cannot express the gratitude and kindness the WellPet Foundation has shown for the dogs and cats of the humane society.
