Based in Northamptonshire, Autarky, part of Dodson and Horrell Ltd, was delighted to give back to the local dog community and help give rescue dogs across the region a well-deserved Christmas treat.

Sam Horrell, Dodson and Horrell CEO said: “We are delighted to be able to donate a large quantity to local rescue dogs at a time of year that can be particularly tough for dog rehoming organisations. We hope that the feed will provide the dogs with plenty of well-deserved Christmas dinners over the festive period and beyond.”

Sue Broughton, one of the trustees at Animal Helpline Dog Rescue, says: “Having been around for 30 years, we’ve rehomed lots of dogs in the time we have been operating. We’re a team run completely by volunteers and having a donation of dog food means that it’s one less thing to worry about, but also that our dogs are receiving the nutrition they need. It’s so nice to see a big business spreading the Christmas cheer.”
