Naughty and Nice: A "Tail" of Two Pets Given Hope for the Holidays

Online Pet Store Gives Back to Homeless Pets Like "Stella" and "Lucky"

ROLLING MEADOWS, ILLINOIS--(Marketwire - Dec. 15, 2010) - Pethealth Inc. (TSX:PTZ) - Stella the "rascally" pup is always running into trouble, while lovable Lucky is a laid-back lap kitten. One's a little bit naughty, the other perfectly nice. But both of these homeless pets will benefit from pet lovers who shop at The Petango Store this Holiday Season, where a portion of every purchase is donated to animal shelters.

According to staff at the Humane Society of Waupaca County, seven-year-old Lucky is top of their nice list. The sweet calico cat was emaciated when she arrived at the shelter, but today is pleasantly plump, affectionate, and looking for a loving home.

On the naughty list is Stella. The lovable, tail-wagging, one-year-old hound mix will need lots of love and dedicated training to help overcome her shoe-chewing separation anxiety.

Shoppers can give the gift of hope to homeless pets like Lucky and Stella by shopping at The Petango Store. As part of the online pet meds and supply store's Shelter Donation Program, a portion of every sale is donated back to an animal shelter of the shopper's choice.

"Purchasing gifts from The Petango Store is a wonderful way to both celebrate the Holiday Season and give back to homeless pets in need," says Monica Gardner, Operations Manager of the Humane Society of Waupaca County. "The support we receive from The Petango Store and their customers is so very appreciated because it helps us find forever homes for deserving pets like Lucky and Stella."

The Petango Store offers a wide selection of chews, toys, and treats that make great gifts for pets. Pet lovers can shop by dog or cat, save with weekly specials, or find everything they need in the Pet Lover's Gift Bundles, recently featured on CBS's 'The Early Show'. New to the store are Scratch 'n Shapes cat-scratchers, Liver Biscotti treats for dogs, and in the new pet apparel category shoppers will find everything from outerwear to formal wear.

"Pet owners like us can't help but spoil their pets during the Holiday Season," says Susan Arts, Vice President of Marketing at Pethealth Inc. "We want our customers to feel good knowing that each time they shop at The Petango Store they're also helping less fortunate pets—both naughty and nice."
