Give a Gift that Gives Back to Homeless Pets

CBS Early Show Highlights The Petango Store and Its Shelter Donation Program

ROLLING MEADOWS, ILLINOIS--(Marketwire - Dec. 1, 2010) - Pethealth Inc. (TSX:PTZ) - Give gifts. Give back. Give hope to homeless pets… like Tinker! That's the big idea that put The Petango Store's Pet Lover Gift Bundles in the spotlight this morning on CBS's 'The Early Show'. Launched in 2009, the online pet meds and supply store offers pet gifts that give back, as a portion of each sale helps support adoptable pets like Tinker, a Chihuahua Terrier mix.

The two and a half year old Tinker is one of several dogs currently available for adoption through the Santa Cruz SPCA in Santa Cruz, California. Events in her past have taught Tinker to be fearful of strangers. However with patience she is a warm, affectionate little dog with an incredible sense of loyalty who enjoys being held, lounging about, and cuddling on the couch. She is just one of thousands of pets available on, the popular online destination for people looking to adopt a pet.

"Gifts that give back to shelters are a wonderful way to help homeless pets over the Holiday Season," says Lisa Carter, Executive Director at Santa Cruz SPCA. "We are thrilled to hear that word is spreading about The Petango Store and how it gives back to animal welfare organizations like the Santa Cruz SPCA, because their support helps us find forever homes for wonderful dogs like Tinker."

The Petango Pet Lover's Gift Bundle for dogs was featured on CBS's 'The Early Show' this morning in a segment titled "Gifts That Give Back". The bundles offer all the toys, treats, and chews a dog would want this Holiday Season, and a portion of every sale is donated to help homeless pets at the animal shelter of the shopper's choice. The Pet Lover Gift Bundles are available for dogs of all sizes, as well as cats, and are just some of the many "Gifts that Give Back" available at The Petango Holiday 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 The Early Show 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. I can't think of a better way to give back during this holiday season."
