PetMeds® Supports Animal Shelters In Need

Online pet pharmacy PetMeds® supports the pet community by encouraging pet adoptions and donating free pet products to animal shelters.

Pompano Beach, FL (November 2, 2010) – PetMeds®, America’s Largest Pet Pharmacy is known for helping pet owners save on their pet’s medications, and the Vet-VIPPS accredited online retailer is also making efforts to support animal shelters across the United States. Many animal shelters are non-profit organizations and have limited resources, especially since most shelters are over capacity.

Each week PetMeds® strives to support these organizations by donating a variety of pet products to shelters across the country. PetMeds®’ donation packages generally include a variety of popular pet products such as vitamin supplements, pet food, pet beds, toys, and even popular flea preventatives such as Frontline Plus, K9 Advantix, and Advantage.

"PetMeds® is fortunate to be in a position to help animal rescues and shelters across the country. We recognize and appreciate the efforts of all those who work tirelessly to help animals in need, and we’re happy to help in any way we can," states Alex Irvin, Director of Online Programs at PetMeds®.

To coincide with the support of the pet community, the web site was created to offer information on adopting pets and also to provide animal shelters with an opportunity to sign up to receive free donations. In an effort to encourage animal adoptions, the web site is updated each month featuring an animal shelter that has received donations of pet meds.

Sasha Muzzarelli, the Activities and Development Director of the Tri County Humane Society says, "PetMeds® always goes above and beyond the call of duty, donating medication and other supplies all year round. Their support helps us to continue the life-saving work that we do every day at Tri County. We hope to have a relationship with PetMeds® for years to come!"
