Donate Health for the Holidays
All across the United States animal shelters work hard every day to battle the effects of reckless pet ownership and the overpopulation of cats and dogs. According to the ASPCA approximately 8-12 million companion animals enter animal shelters nationwide each year. These animals come into shelters having been lost, abandoned, mistreated or just simply forgotten. It's a staggering statistic to learn that less than 2% of cats and only 15-20% of dogs that enter a shelter make it home to their rightful family.
The health status of each animal that comes into a shelter varies. If an animal has been homeless for quite some time, given birth in the wild, been injured by another animal, abused by a human, or spent a significant amount of time in harsh weather, they will most likely be stressed, malnourished and/or ill. When you consider the amount of companion animals that enter a shelter, and the health issues they can have, you can better understand what a massive undertaking it is to care for all of them effectively. Amazing people all over the nation volunteer their time, money and skills to help support animal shelters, not to mention the thousands of people who choose to make a sheltered animal part of their family.
At the Probioticsmart.com office the other day we were discussing how to be of service to these animals in need this holiday season and it came down to this:
We know pet health, it's not only our business, it's what we love. We want to help increase the health of animals in need as our way of giving back.
We want to partner with you, our customers, to help support an animal shelter right here in our neck of the woods, the Eau Claire County Human Association, located in Midwestern Wisconsin.
Eau Claire County Humane Association
We make and sell a pet health supplement called PSCPets.com High Calorie Gel. This supplement is specifically formulated for cats and dogs that need to increase their caloric intake. This supplement is ideal for animals that are very young, ill, recovering from a surgery, whelping, or experiencing times of stress which makes it perfect for animals living in a shelter situation.
During the month of December when you donate $2 towards the cost of a tube of PSCPet's.com High Calorie Gel, Probioticsmart.com will match that $2 donation to cover the full cost. Please note that 100% of your donation goes to the purchase of the supplement.
And since we are heavy promoters of probiotics and understand the benefits of utilizing beneficial bacteria to help increase overall health, with each donation made we will also donate a free tube of Stable-Lyze. Stable-Lyze is a probiotic supplement designed to help maintain digestive health and beneficial bacteria balance in the digestive system of animals, thus helping to increase nutrient absorption and immune system function.
The products we are donating along with your help aren’t treats or toys (although treats and toys are lots of fun); these are health supplements designed for animals that need a health boost. Help us donate health for the holidays to the Eau Claire Country Humane Association. We appreciate it, the shelter appreciates it, and the animals will no doubt appreciate having a healthier holiday season!
