Davy, a four-month-old husky mix, was adopted from Dog Gone Seattle, a foster-based rescue organization in the Seattle area, and has already found his forever home with the family of Chris Scarborough, lead developer of the Climate Pledge Arena and Seattle Kraken app. As part of the partnership with Canidae, Davy will train with the Alliance of Therapy Dogs, and will make appearances at community events throughout the year, as well as periodical visits to the Kraken’s hospital partner at Virginia Mason Franciscan Health when it is deemed safe to do so.

“We’ve always known that the NHL and their teams shared Canidae’s passion for sustainability and goodness, on top of an enduring love of dogs,” said Dana Paris, Chief Marketing Officer of Canidae. “So it was clear that a partnership with the Kraken, as well as Climate Pledge Arena, would align perfectly with our goal to spread Goodness across multiple avenues.”

This new partnership is a natural extension of Canidae’s Cycle of Goodness, which goes beyond sustainably produced, nutritionally-dense food for dogs and cats to promote Goodness for pets, people, and the planet. Canidae partners with regenerative farmers to support local producers and cut down on energy use and emissions, as well as nurturing the human/pet connection in other ways.

Davy’s new office is at Climate Pledge Arena, the first zero-carbon arena in the world. In addition to focusing on removing fossil fuels from operations and water conservation, all food and beverage served at the arena is locally sourced from within 100 miles of the building. He’ll also spend time at Kraken Community Iceplex where he’ll be available to meet more fans!

“We’re excited to welcome Davy Jones into the Seattle Kraken family, and proud to partner with Canidae to bring him on board,” said Head Coach Dave Hakstol of the Seattle Kraken. He’s a solid addition to the locker room and our community and we can’t wait for everyone to get to know him.”

Canidae’s Cycle of Goodness focuses on three main tenets: Good for Pets, Good for People, Good for our Planet. This partnership is one of many steps Canidae is taking to deliver goodness to all, and will shine a spotlight on the incredible work that our furry friends can do as trained therapy dogs.
