Pet Ecology Brands Perfect Litter Wins SPCA's 2008 Best of the Best Award for Excellence in Cat Litter

DALLAS, TX--(Marketwire - December 18, 2007) - Pet Ecology Brands, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: PECD), a company committed to technologically advanced pet care products that meet today's lifestyle and environmental needs, has won the prestigious Best of the Best Award from SPCA International (Society for the Prevention of Cruelty To Animals - for the company's Perfect Litter Alert™.

The SPCA International Best of the Best Award is designed to recognize products, services, and programs of the highest quality and offer exceptional value. Each company receiving the Best of the Best Award was nominated and approved by SPCA International's panel of animal experts. Best of the Best Awards are bestowed to one company in five categories, including Excellence in Pet Behavior Training, Excellence in Pet Carriers, Excellence in Cat Litter, Excellence in Pet Insurance and Excellence in Pet Nutrition.

The first earth-friendly cat litter, Perfect Litter Alert is especially created to counter problems resulting from clay-based litters -- from weight and odor control issues to the destruction of landfills around the world. Easy-to-use, Perfect Litter Alert is ultra lightweight (up to 70% lighter than regular litter) yet absorbs four times more than most other cat litters making it last longer. Using a unique and safe flushable enzyme-based system that clumps easily, tracks less and is dust-free, the product neutralizes cat odors on contact and leaving homes odor-free. In addition, Perfect Litter is the only litter to offer an exclusive patented early warning system for FLUTD, a potential fatal disease that affects millions of cats each year. A potentially fatal urinary tract disease that affects millions of cats each year, FLUTD is the #1 reason cat owners visit veterinarians each year.

"Perfect Litter reflects the highest levels of product excellence required for receiving a 'Best of the Best' Award. We congratulate Pet Ecology for having developed such an impressive product," said Stephanie Scroggs, SPCA Director of Communications.

Said Ralph Steckel President and CEO of Pet Ecology Brands: "We are honored to have received this significant award for Perfect Litter from the SPCA, which became aware of our product as a result of the national television and Internet advertising that began this past fall. Since this launch only a few months ago, tens of thousands of orders have been shipped to customers and resulted in a very positive response to our product from cat owners. The same awareness that captured the attention of the SPCA is what we plan on achieving within food and drug chains. We expect that to happen very soon."
