A big thank you to Healthway Natural Foods

Elizabeth Dick, owner and founder of Healthway Natural Foods, has been a supporter of the animals at Rikki's Refuge from day one -- and she has just made a major contribution to the cats of our 9th Life Retirement, Assisted Living and Psychiatric Center.

The Fredericksburg Healthway store kindly gives us their leftover produce for our pigs and rabbits (and what they call "left over" is better than what you can buy in regular grocery stores). This week they donated 400 pounds of super high quality Pet Guard Cat Food. We designated this food to the cats of our 9th Life Retirement, Assisted Living and Psychiatric Center since they are older and have the most health problems. It would be wonderful if we could feed this to all our cats, but we go through 65 pounds of cat food each day, and it's just not practical yet.

If you haven't let your cats try Pet Guard Cat Food, stop by and pick some up today. You'll have a lot happy cats! When you visit, please leave a donation in one of Rikki's Refuge's collection cans, and let your cashier know that the cats of Rikki's Refuge sent you!

If you can't visit, send them a thank you note from the cats of Rikki's Refuge to let them know that we all appreciate their care and giving to the animals here.
