Promoting Plant-Based Diets for Dogs at Mutt Strutt

On May 19, 2024, NHARL had a booth at the Manchester Animal Shelter’s Mutt Strutt, where we promoted plant-based diets for dogs.

Note: The French bulldog in the slideshow was purchased at The Puppy Palace in Manchester, then surrendered to the Manchester Animal Shelter when the purchaser realized he was sick. A shelter volunteer adopted him.

Can Your Dog Be Vegan?

Until recently, little data was available about the health of dogs on vegan diets. But there are now eight such studies in leading scientific journals, and all but one found that the healthiest and least hazardous diet for dogs is a nutritionally sound vegan diet.

We sent visitors to our booth home with sample servings of V-dog Kind Kibble and Wild Earth Performance Formula Dog Food — both brands are fully vegan — so they could try the food without having to buy a whole bag.

And we gave out a variety of “meaty” plant-based dog treats from Bright Earth, which were a big hit with the dogs who stopped by our table.

Thank you to our volunteers and everyone who stopped by to learn about vegan diets for dogs!
