Make no bones about it, Buddy’s Pizza has developed a special treat just for the furry, four-legged members of your family. It’s all in an effort to support the Michigan Humane Society.
Buddy’s Pizza puts a new twist on the doggy bag and finds an alternate use for the handmade multi-grain dough. In order to make the perfect pizza Buddy’s first has to have the perfect crust. Since pizza dough is made fresh daily and can be quite finicky, sometimes it just isn’t up to par for a Buddy’s Pizza anymore. Instead of discarding this dough, Buddy’s found a way to repurpose it as a treat for man’s best friend. This all-natural dog biscuit will result in less waste and help to raise funds for the Michigan Humane Society.
Pet owners will find Buddy Bones for sale at the registers of all Buddy’s 10 locations. With proceeds benefiting the Michigan Humane Society, Buddy’s guests will now have an opportunity to pick up a nutritious treat for their pet and help other animals in need at the same time.
“Many of our own employees are pet owners,” said Wesley Pikula, vice president of operations at Buddy’s Pizza. “Buddy’s Pizza has always felt our customers were like members of our Buddy’s family. We enjoy supporting each other and community organizations that work to make a difference here. It also made sense to extend a partnership we already had with the Michigan Humane Society. We have been supporting events like the Meet Your Best Friend pet adoptions at the Detroit Zoo for many years by providing pizza to volunteers. This way, we can also help feed those pets finding new homes – as well as those in need of homes.”
Keeping with its commitment to highest quality standards and high levels of nutritional value, Buddy’s Pizza consulted with Michigan Humane Society veterinarians to make sure the multi-grain crust was canine friendly. Grains, water, yeast and molasses make for a healthy yet tasty treat dogs are sure to be happy with. Due to the all-natural ingredients Buddy Bones are best if consumed by Fido within 30 days of purchase.
“Buddy Bones are those special treats that your dogs will go crazy for and pet owners can feel really great about,” said Kelley Meyers, veterinarian and vice president/director of Veterinary Center Operations for the Michigan Humane Society. “Natural and simple ingredients with a taste dogs are sure to love and best of all, the donations from Buddy Bones go directly to helping the many animals in need within our local communities.”
Patrons wishing to bring Buddy Bones home for their dogs can feel confident they will also be helping those animals who have not yet found a forever home.
Each Buddy Bones package will be offered for $2 with a portion of the proceeds benefiting the Michigan Humane Society.
