CFA-BAP Receives Generous Food Donation from Royal Canin
April 8, 2013
Royal Canin recently donated approximately 2,000 pounds of cat food to the Cat Fanciers’ Association Breeder Assistance Program (BAP). Royal Canin’s generous donation goes a long way towards assisting breeders, shelters and rescues across the United States which are in need of food. Royal Canin has been involved with the BAP and the BAP Food Pantry since the program’s inception in 2006. The CFA BAP program helps and supports breeders who find themselves in an out-of-control situation by making assistance available through other breeders. The assistance is provided in confidence, with compassion to the individuals involved and with the well-being of the cats in mind.
Royal Canin’s donation demonstrates the company’s continued commitment to help breeders and rescue groups feed the cats. As well as aiding breeders in stressful situations, Royal Canin’s donation of their products also aids other cats in need across the country. In conjunction with the CFA National Food Pantry program, large quantities of Royal Canin donated food are distributed to shelters and rescue groups to aid in the care of their rescued cat populations. To date, in conjunction with Royal Canin, the CFA Food Pantry has shipped approximately 18,000 pounds of food around the country and donated over 25,000 pounds. Approximately 20 breeders and 12 rescue groups and shelters have been recipients of aid from the CFA Breeder Assistance Program and the Food Pantry.
