DEBBIE PIPKIN OF BELLEVILLE PLAYS “ANGEL” TO A BEAGLE THAT WAS USED FOR RESEARCH FOR THREE YEARS
* Debbie’s act of kindness provides a loving home to Angel and now the two are inseparable!
BELLEVILLE, MI – We’ve read and heard a lot of cute, loving, and touching stories about pet owners and their beloved pets over the many years we’ve hosted our pet photo contest, but once in a while, one comes to us that simply touches out heart. Debbie Pipkin and her story of how she rescued Angel the beagle is one such story. Debbie sent in a photo of Angel and was chosen as the Better Made Snack Foods November 2019 Pet Photo Contest Winner. For being chosen, Debbie will receive a freshly made sampler box filled with a variety of delicious Better Made products.
Pet contest photos of all kinds may be submitted on line through the contest page on the Better Made website, www.bettermade.com, e-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org, or mailed to Better Made Pet Photo Contest, 10148 Gratiot Avenue, Detroit, MI 48213. Remember, Better Made encourages people to send in their most outrageous and/or cutest pet photo they can of their favorite pet, be it a dog, cat, goat, rabbit, bird, orangutan, frilled lizard, etc., and the funnier or cuter the better!
“Angel, our beautiful beagle, had been in research her entire life until 2018 just before her 3rd birthday,” says Debbie. “She was put up for adoption as her study was up and was the first of seven dogs to go to a “Fur Ever” home. She had never seen daylight, been outside, rode in a car, seen snow, leaves, sticks, or bugs, and only ate low grade and treats. Angel has been with us over a year now and she has adjusted quite well. She loves being outside and loves being with her other doggie cousins. She isn't too sure about cats, but she tolerates them. Every night she sleeps at the head of our bed and loves to eat anything that hits the floor, especially her mamma's salt and vinegar chips! She is truly our Angel.”
“Debbie’s rescue story touched all of us here at the company,” says Cathy Gusmano of Better Made. “It’s more than just a pet of the month story, it’s a story about a love for animals and compassion. And at this time of year, stories like these really tug at your heart strings.”
