Online Pet Medication Store Supports Free Vaccinations for Cats

ThePetangoStore.com Helps to Fund the Humane Society of Tampa Bay Vaccs for Life Program

ROLLING MEADOWS, ILLINOIS--(Marketwire - Aug. 31, 2010) - Pethealth Inc. (TSX:PTZ) – The Petango Store is pleased to be supporting The Humane Society of Tampa Bay's efforts in offering free vaccinations for the entire life of any cat, one year or older, that is adopted between September 1, 2010 and February 28, 2011.

Each cat that qualifies will receive one free rabies and distemper vaccination per year at the Humane Society of Tampa Bay's Wellness Clinic.

"The Humane Society of Tampa Bay is delighted that ThePetangoStore.com is helping to fund this cutting edge program. Shelters across the country are filled to capacity with homeless cats. With the incentive of receiving free vaccinations for the life of the cat, we believe this program will help adopt out many more wonderful cats. It is another example of how ThePetangoStore.com helps shelters reach their ultimate goal of saving as many pets as possible," said Sherry Silk, Executive Director of The Humane Society of Tampa Bay.

ThePetangoStore.com is an online discount pet medication and pet supplies store built off the PetPoint Animal Management platform launched in 2005. PetPoint is the leading edge SaaS-based Animal Management software system that helps animal welfare organizations manage their operations more efficiently and expects nearly 800,000 dogs and cats to be adopted through its application in 2010.

Since the launch of the Store in December 2009, donations to animal welfare organizations via its Partner Program have been over $35,000.00 providing shelters with crucial financial support to help animals in need.

"The PetangoStore.com provides a wide range of pet supplies and medication at a low-cost, is the only on-line pet supply store that actively encourages purchasers to give back to a shelter of their choice, and provides a one-stop shop for pet parents, or adopters who have just added a new furry family member to the household," said Christa Chadwick, Director of North American Outreach, Pethealth Inc.
