MISSISSAUGA, ON, March 19, 2015 /CNW/ - Don Cherry and Simply Pets
announced today the launch of Rock 'em Jerky and Natural Mini Bites Dog
Treats, a new line of dog treats now available at more than 350 Walmart
stores nationwide and on walmart.ca.
Simply Pets artisanal treats are made in Canada, from domestic and
imported ingredients. The main ingredients include chicken, whitefish
and venison and there are no artificial flavours or additives. Other
ingredients include dehydrated apples, rolled oats and buckwheat flour.
The treat assortment includes Turkey Clubhouse, Bacon Cheddar, Venison
and Whitefish, and for dogs with a sweet tooth, there's a Cinnamon Bun
"Simply Pets is committed to the highest quality standards. Our chefs
and veterinarians develop items that pets love and pet parents can feel
confident in feeding to their pets," said Bryan Green, president of
Simply Pets. "Our commitment to quality, pets and Canada are aligned
with Don Cherry's passions. When we approached Don Cherry about
supporting his foundation he agreed immediately and insisted that 100%
of his portions of proceeds goes to Don Cherry's Pet Rescue Foundation.
It is a privilege to work with Walmart Canada as they have the same
high standards as Simply Pets and Don Cherry."
For every Simply Pets product purchased, Don Cherry will donate .15 to
.30 cents (depending upon the sku purchased) to Don Cherry's Pet Rescue
Foundation. Don insisted that 100% of his portion of the proceeds goes
to Don Cherry's Pet Rescue Foundation. "I've had pets my whole life.
From raising rabbits as a little boy, to owning my beloved Blue. There
has always been a special place in my heart for dogs. I feel if you
meet someone who is mean to a dog, chances are, the way they treat
people will not be far off," says Don Cherry.
"We are very pleased to offer our four-legged customers a high quality
line of dog treats," said Walter Bockl, Category Manager. We look
forward to hearing from our customers about Simply Pets dog treats,
which are now available in Walmart stores across the country."
