"At Diamond Pet Foods, we
know our success is in part due to
the communities and veterans who
have supported us over the years,"
said John Kampeter, vice president of marketing for Diamond.
"We place a high emphasis on
giving back to those who make our

communities stronger - on a local
and national level."
To that end, the company is a
sponsor of K9s on the Front Line,
a Portland, Maine-based 501(c)(3)
nonprofit organization providing
certified, trained service dogs to
military veterans who are affected by
PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder)
and/or TBI (traumatic brain injury),
at no cost to the veterans. Diamond
works alongside the organization to
create awareness of the importance of
service dogs and the significant difference they can make in a veteran's
life. It's a job that Kampeter said the
company takes to heart.
"We can give your dog the fuel and
the nutrition they need, but we feel it's
important to do more than just that,"
he said. "Our communities are the
reason for much of our success. Therefore, we feel it vital to continue to give
back to those who have given us so
much. As a family-owned company,
we work hard to provide families
with quality ingredients at a price our
customers can feel good about. Pet
parents shouldn't have to compromise
on quality for cost, nor should your
pets be shorted. We believe that every
pet and pet owner deserve the best,
which is why we sponsor organizations such as K9s on the Front Line."

"We want our partners and our
consumers to know we have gone to
great lengths to build a sustainable
business that is good for the communities and environments it impacts," said
Lisa Momberger, CEO of Honey I'm
Home!. "However, this was the first
time we asked our community to be
involved in spreading the word about
