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 the high-nutrient treats 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 by subscribing and buying our products, we will continue to support Nía, Donn and Río with monthly free supplement – thank you!
She has written the article with such an in-depth understanding of the importance of dogs going plant-based – all just so positive for the future!
Which dog foods in the UK can be classed as fully vegan?

As we come out of lockdown, we advise on how to be the kindest pet owner that you can be!
Something that so many owners who transition to plant-based notice with their dogs – how soft the fur becomes!
I have been contacted by so many owners feeding their dogs plant-based and some of their dogs have had issues with painful urinary crystals…..
Prof Andrew Knight has published proof for the very first time, proving that a vegan diet is as palatable to our dogs as…
Our JUST BE KIND supplement powder contains the vitamins, minerals, trace elements and amino acids that are essential for dogs fed a purely plant-based diet
The majority of foods we eat and feed to our pet (especially plant-based) are healthy and good for them, but these are the few exceptions to be aware of
It all started with a dog named Bramble who lived until she was 25 on a diet of organic brown rice, lentils, freshly grown vegetables and love!
Gradual changes allow the appropriate changes of digestive enzymes and intestinal microbiome
