WILLIAMSBURG – The Richmond based dog shelter, Dog Rescue Ringkicked off the holiday season by receiving a donation of 4,500 pounds of dog food from The Nautical Doga pet supply store in New Town.

The donation, valued at $ 10,798, is large enough to feed animals in need for up to eight months.

For Amanda Wilbourne, owner of Nautical Dog, partnering with nonprofits is the cornerstone of her business philosophy. She partners with a different nonprofit every month.

With Thanksgiving celebrated in November, Wilbourne wanted to focus on a theme of gratitude and giving. So she made a donation that helps Ring Dog’s “Dog house project“which focuses on community outreach and helps provide proper shelter and fencing for dogs that are regularly chained, as well as food.

“All the rescue groups do things for the community, but Ring Dog Rescue goes above and beyond,” Wilbourne said of his donation. She added that this particular program not only helps ‘unleash’ the dogs, but also teaches children how to care for animals through school programs.

For anyone interested in contributing, Nautical Dog accepts donations for Ring Dog Rescue. Items needed include meaty bones, flea and tick prevention, chicken broth and peanut butter, and money for kennels.
