Wellness Natural Pet Food started an initiative called “5 Signs of Wellness” to encourage pet owners to be mindful of the health of their furry friends. The company has been traveling across the country in a dog-shaped food truck and food wagon to promote pet wellness in between veterinarian visits.

When the truck stops in Philly, pet owners can stop and grab a bite. But this truck has treats and activities for the pets too. Wellness Natural’s staff members will be offering samples of the latest pet food, inviting dogs to try out an agility course, and showing parents how to enact proper pet hygiene by giving them doggy toothbrushes.

The company will also be using social media to spread its message and raise awareness for a worthy cause. Pets can come wag their tails in front of the wagon as a staff member snaps a picture. For every photo shared with #WagsforWellness, the company will donate one bag of Wellness pet food to shelters around the country to help animals in need.
