Wendy Diamond Leads Protest For Better Food For Dogs In Union Square
Animal Fair Media’s pet lifestyle expert Wendy Diamond has begun a “mutt movement” that took place on October 2, 2012, in Union Square of New York City.
Touted as “Doccupy,” this organized protest was sponsored by Merrick Pet Care and united pet parents with their pets to raise awareness about the need for better quality dog food for all dogs.
Diamond knows firsthand about the relevance of healthy pet food after losing her beloved adopted Maltese, Lucky to spleen cancer this year. Wendy and Baby Hope protested in honor of Lucky.
“While Lucky was battling canine spleen cancer, I did everything possible to help her, including making sure she ate the purest, all natural, organic foods on the market to give her a fighting chance,” Diamond stated.
Attendees camped out for a few hours, carried signs, and rallied with furry protestors to call attention to the health of dogs across the United States.
Diamond stated, “While Lucky was battling canine spleen cancer, I did everything possible to help her, including making sure she ate the purest, all natural, organic foods on the market to give her a fighting chance.” Diamond is currently teaming up with the Mayor’s Alliance for NYC’s Animals to help bring public awareness to canine cancer and how the environment and pet food plays a consequential role.
Olympic fencer, Tim Morehouse, was in attendance as well, which drew crowds of people and their pets. While at the protest, Dog lovers can also sign a “pawtition” to raise donations of nutritious food for local shelter dogs throughout the city. Merrick Pet Care will be donating healthy food to local shelter animals in partnership with the Mayor’s Alliance for NYC’s Animals.
