Fine Forecast Ahead for Homeless Pets

The Weather Channel's 'Wake Up With Al' Features Pet Gifts That Give Back to Shelter Animals

NEW YORK, NEW YORK--(Marketwire - Dec. 21, 2010) - Pethealth Inc. (TSX:PTZ) - Warm, sunny, and a good chance of finding a forever home. That's the forecast for homeless pets that benefit from people who shop at The Petango Store, where a portion of each sale on all product purchases helps to support adoptable pets in animal shelters. The online pet meds and supply store was featured on The Weather Network's 'Wake Up With Al' show this morning, as part of their "Gifts That Give Back" segment. 

With its Shelter Donation Program, The Petango Store will make a donation to the animal welfare organization of the customer's choice every time they shop. Shoppers can feel good knowing that they're helping animal shelters, as their support goes a long way to helping homeless pets like Lilly, a pit bull-terrier mix.

One-year-old Lilly was left behind when her family decided to move on without her. Now she spends her days at Lollypop Farm, Humane Society of Greater Rochester in Fairport, New York, patiently waiting for the right family to give her a forever home. Sweet and curious, Lilly loves chasing a ball, romping with other dogs, and walks well on a leash. She is one of thousands of pets available on, the popular online destination for people looking to adopt a pet.

"Giving a gift that gives back to homeless pets is a great way to shop for your pet or a pet lover in your family," says Alice Calabrese, President and CEO of Lollypop Farm, Humane Society of Greater Rochester. "The Petango Store's Shelter Donation Program makes a real difference to animal welfare organizations like Lollypop Farm. The funds we have received through this partnership are already changing the lives of homeless pets deserving of a second chance, like Lilly."

The Petango Pet Lover's Gift Bundle for dogs was the specific gift featured on The Weather Channel's 'Wake Up With Al' this morning. The bundles are available for dogs of all sizes, as well as cats, and offer all the toys, treats, and chews a pet could want. They are just some of many "Gifts that Give Back" available at The Petango Store.

"The Petango Store was launched to support our shelter partners, generating donations to help more cats and dogs find forever homes," says Susan Arts, Vice President of Marketing at Pethealth Inc. "We are thrilled that 'Wake Up With Al' highlighted The Petango Store and our Shelter Donation Program. Not only will shoppers save by purchasing pet meds and supplies at discounted prices, they'll also be helping shelters and homeless pets in need. That's a fine forecast for shoppers, shelters, and pets in need!"
