Thanks to so much wonderful support, we ran a successful Crowdfunding page in April 2020 to raise funds to get our food fully nutritionally analysed to benefit your pets. One of the rewards was supporting the lovely Nía Ní Gréine who single-handedly runs the Heartstone Veganic Sanctuary. It is a sanctuary that is completely reliant on the support of people’s kindness and even more so with the current pandemic and lockdown.
In Nia’s words:
For those who don’t know me yet, I take care of the 22 (mostly) gentle souls who are currently part of the family:
3 cows, 3 bullocks, 2 blind heifers, 2 thoroughbred mares in foster, two Irish Cob geldings, two Shetland ponies, four sheep, two Staffies – one of which, Donn, has only recently been rescued from severe neglect and abuse and still needs a lot of tlc, and two cats. Many of the animals have special needs.
We posted Nía her first donated batch of Umami protein packs to try on Donn and Río and here was her reply –
“Thank you so so much, goodness, such a huge parcel, just got it from my kind DPD delivery guy, I’m speechless! You’re incredible, thank you with all my heart! I will bake a set of treats tonight – Donn and Río will certainly go crazy for them, I will post some photos if they let me take pictures, haha! Gosh that’s amazing, you’re truly incredible. Hope you and all yours are safe and well! Will let you know as soon as the boys have tried them!
Donn has pulled the pack off the counter before I could even start preparing them, and ate half of it as is! It’s of course still an effect of him having been starved for so long, but it clearly shows he loves the mix. He doesn’t do that with bread, for example.”
With your help buying our homemade protein packs, we will continue to support Nía, Donn and Río with monthly free food – thank you!
As a small business, we will do all we can to continue to promote the nourishment of our pets with wholesome, clean and nutritious plant-based foods that hold no dangers of causing a second pandemic.
So if you’re concerned about your pet food safety, let’s go plant-based. If you’re concerned about the carbon pawprint of your pet, then let’s go plant-based. If you’re concerned about your pet….
The maned wolf really blows the theory of our pet dogs needing meat in their diet completely out the water
This snuffle blanket is ideal mental stimulation for dogs
When we read this review, we felt quite emotional as the difference in Bea after only a month on a plant-based diet is remarkable
There is evidence to prove that a plant-based diet that is properly balanced whether dry or homemade is kinder for your dog
Until we get our new recipe up and the new packs made, we are offering a 40% discount on all our current Umami protein packs
We are now told that when dealing with the public we have to wear a mask and here are some things that I experienced while doing vet work yesterday
Marvin was picked up as a stray by a local dog pound and the front leg was badly injured, they think he had been hit by a car
Lauric acid is responsible for many of coconut oil’s health benefits including its immune-supporting, antibacterial, antifungal, and antiviral properties
Many dogs sold at wet markets for meat are Golden Retriever types
We gathered enough support to finally get our food nutritionally analysed by an expert!
