Franklin & George with Ryan Kerrigan
Football Linebacker

Franklin and George are English bulldog brothers from D.C. that enjoy philanthropy, educating their couple thousand followers on Instagram, and, of course, the occasional butt scratch. As an outside linebacker for a professional football team, Ryan Kerrigan, Franklin and George’s dad, depends on the right food to fuel his body for every play on the field – and his best friends depend on the right food to fuel them for play off the field.

Franklin is an eight-year-old bulldog who takes care of his little brother George, three-years, who suffers from heart issues and can’t be as rough and tumble as his big brother. But getting premium nutrition is just as important to George as it is to Franklin – all pets, active and not-so-active, need high meat protein, quality pet food to thrive. After all, they are carnivores.

Ryan’s wife, Jessica, is a vet tech and the two of them together work with the Humane Rescue Alliance and even set up a charity organization to help pets in need in their area. Nulo is so pleased to be able to team up with George, Franklin and Ryan to help educate consumers that nutrition is the most important decision you can make for your pets!

Sacks For Shelter Pets SacksForShelter Pets Logo

Starting with the 2018/19 football season, Ryan and Nulo decided to establish the Sacks for Shelter Pets program where Nulo will donate 1000 meals for each sack that Ryan gets during the regular season. These meals will be donated to a shelter of Ryan and Jessica’s choosing at the conclusion of the season. The mission is to help as many pets waiting for their forever home get the best nutrition possible. Getting these cats and dogs on a premimum nutritious diet is a great way to ensure they look and feel their best as they try to get adopted. Check back each week to see how many meals are donated! Follow Ryan’s progress by following #SacksForShelterPets on Instagram and Facebook!
