Meet Connie Hellwig, Founder and Executive Director of Feed the Dog, Inc.

by Laurie Christiansen, Mar 29

Almost twenty years ago, a young woman named Connie Hellwig attended a fundraiser for a dog walking charity in her local area. There she encountered a middle-aged physically handicapped woman with a service dog; both caught her eye. What she noticed immediately was that the woman was poorly dressed, and her dog appeared unhealthy. During their conversation, Connie realized that the woman might need some assistance in caring for her dog.Always being an animal lover, Connie had worked for the Animal Rescue League in Boston and was educated and well versed in the importance of healthy food for dogs.
