A heartwarming story recently unfolded in my world, one that exemplifies the immense power of compassion and generosity. Dr. Harvey's, a pioneer in natural pet nutrition, reached out to the Denver Animal Shelter, setting in motion a chain of joy that touched the hearts of both animals and humans.

Who I am and What I do

Allow me to introduce myself: I'm Natalie, an influencer with a deep passion for animals, particularly dogs. My platform has been dedicated to advocating for animal welfare, inspired by my four beloved companions – Banks, Birdie, Gigi, and Froggy. These furry friends of mine have taught me the importance of celebrating the love and loyalty that our pets bring into our lives.

The Denver Animal Shelter


The Denver Animal Shelter isn't just any shelter; it's a beacon of hope for thousands of lost and abandoned pets every year. Their mission aligns perfectly with my passion – providing humane care, reuniting pets with their owners, facilitating adoptions, enforcing animal ordinances, and educating the public about the needs of animals. I'm proud to be a volunteer at this remarkable shelter, where I witness the life-changing impact they make in our community.

My Volunteer Experience

My commitment to volunteering at the Denver Animal Shelter stems from my belief that it's a place where compassion knows no bounds. It's a privilege to be part of the journey, offering comfort, love, and support to animals on their quest for forever homes. The shelter's dedication to reuniting pets, promoting adoptions, and educating the community resonates deeply with my values.

Animal shelters play a pivotal role in our society, with thousands of lost and abandoned pets seeking refuge every day. Volunteering at shelters becomes essential in providing these animals with the care and attention they deserve while awaiting adoption. The statistics serve as a stark reminder of the pressing need for volunteers and adoption, and each adoption signifies a transformed life, a story of hope and love.

Dr. Harveys Role in Our Life

Now, let me introduce you to Dr. Harvey's – a true champion for pet wellness. Dr. Harvey's isn't just a pet food company; it's a symbol of dedication to the well-being of our furry friends. Founded by Dr. Harvey, a pioneer in holistic pet nutrition, has been producing natural and healthy pet products since 1984. Their products are free from chemicals, preservatives, and synthetic additives, ensuring pets receive the best.

My love for Dr. Harvey's extends beyond mere appreciation for a pet food brand; it's about recognizing the remarkable health benefits it brings to dogs. Their unwavering commitment to holistic nutrition means that dogs receive nothing but the finest, all-natural ingredients. This has been a game-changer for my furry family, addressing various health issues and offering me peace of mind.

Now, let's talk about the heart of this story – Dr. Harvey's generous donations to the Denver Animal Shelter. They provided an array of wholesome treats and items that made tails wag with delight.

Chicken Hearts and Sweet Potato Chews Galore!

Among the standout items are Chicken Hearts treats – made with a single high-quality ingredient, freeze-dried for maximum nutrition. These treats are not only delicious but also allergen-free and easy to digest, perfect for shelter dogs.

Another remarkable donation is Sweet Potate’r Chews, offering a natural alternative to rawhide and molded chews. These 100% real, natural dehydrated sweet potatoes contain no artificial ingredients, dyes, preservatives, or by-products.

The Big ‘Delivery’ Day

The most rewarding part of my journey with Dr. Harvey's generous donation to the Denver Animal Shelter was the profound joy and nourishment it brought to both the shelter animals and our hearts.

Witnessing the shelter animals relish the treats provided by Dr. Harvey's was a priceless experience. It reminded me that a simple act of kindness, like sharing a wholesome treat, has the power to transform a day and instill hope.

Seeing the shelter animals eagerly devour the treats was a heartwarming experience that left an indelible mark on my heart. Their joy was palpable, their tails wagging with unbridled enthusiasm as they relished each bite.

These moments were a testament to the power of simple gestures and the profound impact they can have on the lives of shelter animals. It was a reminder that amidst their uncertain circumstances, these animals radiate resilience and an unwavering capacity for happiness.
