A vegan pet food brand has donated more than 2,500 meals to homeless dogs.
Noochy Poochy, a Sevenoaks based dog food brand, partnered with the animal charity, Dogs On The Streets, to feed pups in need across the country.
The company donated 2,600 meals to homeless dogs living across London, and in other major cities in the UK.
It’s estimated that there could be up to 75,000 homeless people in the UK, who are living on the streets with an animal.
Dogs On The Streets are dedicated to the welfare of these animals and provide care through veterinary services, providing leads and harnesses, grooming sessions and food provisions.
A spokesman for the charity said: "We are very excited to be working with Noochy Poochy and providing the dogs we support with 100% nutritional food kindly donated to us by them."
Formulated by Lucy McKinna, a vegan vet, and John Murray, an animal nutritionist, Noochy Poochy takes its name from its use of nutritional yeast, known as nooch, which, blended with other plant-based ingredients, gives the dog food a cheesy flavour and smell.
Lucy McKinna said: “Being able to help Dogs On The Streets is an absolute pleasure and falls perfectly in line with Noochy Poochy’s mission, caring for animals and the planet.”
