February PSCPets Rescue Outreach Program
House With a Heart Senior Pet Sanctuary
PSCPets.com seeks to assist non-profit organizations that care and advocate for animals by providing them with certain products they can utilize with the help of a minimal donation from you! Each month we feature a new non-profit organization to promote and support with the PSCPets Rescue Outreach Program.
PSCPets’ February Rescue Outreach Program featured organization is House With A Heart Senior Pet Sanctuary of Gaithersburg, Maryland.
For every $3 donation we receive during the month of February, PSCPets.com will send one bottle of PSCPets Joint Support, which retails at $14.99, to House Wtih a Heart Senior Pet Sanctuary. This product, which comes in soft chew form, is ideal for the old critters at HWAH. Please make your donations here!
House With A Heart is a non-profit, all-volunteer organization which provides shelter for senior dogs and cats. This organization does its part to reduce the amount of older dogs and cats that are euthanized or made homeless because of their aging conditions. Unlike most shelters, HWAH does not seek to find new homes for their animals but instead provides a place for them to live out the remainder of their lives.
HWAH greatly appreciates any donations, as caring for older pets can be more costly than with younger animals since they require special diets and more frequent medical attention.

Developed and created by our own veterinarian team, this product contains a special blend of ingredients that help to support healthy bones, joints and surrounding tissues. These ingredients include glucosamine, chondroitin sulfate, manganese, and Vitamin E.
How do these ingredients help with joint health?
• Glucosamine and Chondroitin Sulfate: Thought to help slow or prevent the degeneration of joint cartilage, the underlying cause of osteoarthritis pain. (Yes, your pet can suffer from arthritis, too!) Glucosamine has been shown in laboratory tests to help protect joint cartilage by limiting breakdown and helping to build up levels of cartilage. Chondroitin sulfate is part of a protein molecule that gives cartilage its elastic properties and is thought to have an anti-inflammatory effect. This can help relieve painful swelling in your pat caused by exposed joint bones rubbing together. (Thomas E. Hyde, DC.)
• Manganese: This supplement can be beneficial for several conditions, including Osteoporosis and arthritis. Those suffering from arthritis tend to be lacking in SOD, an antioxidant that helps protect the joints from damage during inflammation. Some experts theorize that manganese may increase SOD levels, and a few clinical studies of people with rheumatoid and osteoarthritis suggest that manganese taken along with glucosamine and chondroitin can reduce pain (UMMC).
• Vitamin E: Also known as D-Alpha Tocopherol Succinate, Vitamin E is an antioxidant and a nutrient that may protect cells against the damage caused by free radicals. Studies show that the buildup of these free radicals is responsible for the aging process and may lead to arthritis, heart disease, and cancer. The powerful antioxidant properties may help prevent damage to joint tissue. (learninginfo.org).
