Online PR News – 16-June-2012 – Mitchell, SD – Mitchell, SD – Spring Naturals, a new line of dinners and treats for dogs, congratulates Kim Kapes as May’s “Spring Into Action” everyday hero.

Here is Kim’s story….
Kim works tirelessly to care for the animals at In Harmony With Nature (IHWN) and this very devotion nearly led to her death one fateful evening. While caring for the animals, one dog dug under the perimeter fence and escaped into the neighbor’s horse pasture. Kim followed in pursuit, and during the panic one horse in full gallop struck Kim. Miraculously Kim survived. After recovering Kim was right back into the normal routine of caring for all the animals that call IHWN home.

Kim’s story is highlighted on the Spring Naturals Facebook page in recognition for her ongoing contributions in the pet world, and to inspire other fans. In honor of her everyday hero status, Kim will receive a complementary 26 lb. bag of Spring Naturals dog dinners, plus a 6 oz. pouch of Spring Naturals treats – a $75 retail value.
