Yoga, Dogs, and Adoptions
Alpha Paw sponsored the first Happy Tails Yoga event with Save An Angel Animal Shelter in Austin, Texas, and it was pawfect!
On August 22, Members of the Austin community gathered at Work and Woof on S. Congress for two yoga classes hosted by local yoga instructor Carly Asana. Throughout the two 45 minute yoga sessions, dogs and puppies that were available for adoption wandered throughout the room interacting with participants with lots of licks and snuggles.
Alpha Paw donated two PawRamps to be auctioned off after the event and all participants got to leave with a bag of Victor’s Doggy cookies. Good Juju Austin Flower Farm donated floral arrangements to participants and visitors enjoyed refreshing cold-pressed juices from Juice Austin. Several members of the Alpha Paw team showed up to participate in yoga and play with the puppies.
“It’s great to see the community coming together to help find forever homes for these dogs,” said one participant. “It’s important to show your support to local organizations and you can see how much joy it brings the dogs as well as the volunteers.”
For Ramon van Meer, CEO of Alpha Paw, there is no action too small when it comes to improving the lives of pets and creating a more pet-friendly planet. This idea weaves through every aspect of Alpha Paw, from the sustainable packaging and biodegradable products to the company’s annual donation of over $100,000 to pet-related charities.
Ramon’s son, Victor, has carried these values into his own dog cookie company and pledged that for every bag of Victor’s Doggy Cookies sold, they will donate a meal to a shelter dog in need. To date, Victor’s Doggy Cookies have fed over 450,000 dogs and counting!
