‘Tis the Season to Not Forget Our Furry Friends
Tomorrow – December 3rd – is Giving Tuesday. It started several years ago as a way to remind people to not forget those less fortunate during the holidays. And soon, it caught on for all of the animals who are less fortunate than your furry loved ones you have at home. So many shelters and rescue groups can use your help through financial donations or donations of food, bedding, toys and more! Pet King Brands is proud to have recently visited the newly built PAWS Animal Shelter in Dripping Springs, Texas. As part of Pet King Brands “giving back to the community” program, PKB’s management team visited the local Whole Pets Market to purchase items that PAWS had on their wish list. Then the management team led by Pet King Brands’ founder and owner, Pamela Bosco, had a tour of PAWS’ new facility managed by Melody Hilburn, Executive Director. And during the company’s 20th anniversary celebration in Maui, Hawai’i, management visited the Lanai Cat Sanctuary, the Hawaiian Animal Rescue Foundation and the Maui Humane Society to make donations to help out the ongoing care of a wide range of animals (including a large land turtle!). Take a few minutes to make a donation to your favorite breed rescue group or an all-breed rescue group, your local shelter or a national organization such as Best Friends Animal Sanctuary where you can select an animal you want to sponsor. It’s estimated there are more than 5,000 animal shelters and rescue groups in the United States alone. You can find information on rescue groups and shelters at Petfinder or the American Kennel Club site; or check online for local shelters and rescue groups. They can always use your help onsite during the holidays too to give a special treat for the animals who will be in the shelter over the holidays. Don’t forget! Please give forward by helping out an animal or two. Dr. Lindsay Butzer, DVM (R) and Dr. Miyo Kim, DVM at the Maui Humane Society.
