The Linda Blair WorldHeart Foundation
November Update
Many of us are coming of a hard summer with fires and storms and now facing terrible, arctic early winter storms with dipping temperatures!
 
Please keep you and your family safe. If you know of or see an animals in trouble PLEASE DO SOMETHING! We are the only voice they have and many folks don't realize their pets, cant take these freezing temps and need to brought indoors. The pets will get sick or die in these freezing temperatures!
 
We are hard at work continue to rescue and make space in the shelters. We wanted to bring to you our newest video about just one rescue dog that is in our overcrowded shelters!
 
Check out Ruby's story below!
Be Prepared in Emergencies!
 
Make sure to update microchip information and have your veterinarian info on hand in case of emergencies. You never know when you may need the help!
 
Read our helpful tips below!
CANCER AND OBESITY IN AMERICA’S PETS
WHAT FOODS ARE SAFE?
 
Many of you are hearing the same scary information concerning your pets food, it IS SCARY and confusing everyone.
 
I shop in stores and see people with big POPULAR bags of dog food in their carts and I cringe. I know the food is making their dogs sick, obese and potentially life threatening through illnesses such as Cancer!
 
After feeding over 3,000 dogs over my rescue lifetime, I know exactly what has been fed and where obesity and Cancer come from.
 
I have learned that WHITE POTATO is an absolute; never feed, as it will most likely, cause the cancer cells in their bodies to feed and grow!  Sweet potato, on the other hand, is safe and fine to feed.
 
The questions about legumes, peas and lentils causing heart disease is a big topic of conversation, but in small doses, there is no proof that it leads to heart disease in dogs. The test studies have NOT BEEN DONE!
 
Simple rule of thumb: Dogs and cats, used to hunt for their food, which was a single protein. No additives. They ate grass for the enzymes to digest their dinner.
 
So keep it simple and basic!
 
Read your food bags and cans! The more ingredients listed usually indicates they are not actually putting in enough good meat in the product.
 
I believe in cost effective, quality food, with real meat, as America’s love for animals has grown,. More people rescue pets off the street or from shelters, but our difficult economy, does not afford high priced foods for our pets.
 
Here are a few brands I do feed to my 100 dogs in our rescue Wellness center:

“Taste of the Wild”- PINE FOREST recipe.
PREY- Grain free  (only found at feed and some boutique stores)
