The Petango Store: "Thanks for Giving Hope to Homeless Pets, like Spot"

Online Pet Store Thanks Shoppers for Helping Homeless Pets During National Animal Shelter Appreciation Week

ROLLING MEADOWS, ILLINOIS--(Marketwire - Nov. 24, 2010) - Pethealth Inc. (TSX:PTZ) 'See Spot run, see Spot play, see Spot adopted!' That's the goal of The Petango Store's Shelter Donation Program, where a portion of every sale is donated to animal shelters to support the goal of pet adoption. The online pet meds and supply store doubled its donation amounts during National Animal Shelter Appreciation Week earlier this month, and is thanking customers for helping to give hope to pets like 'Spot' the cat.

Spot is a six year old female domestic shorthair currently available for adoption at the Kentucky Humane Society (KHS). According to staff at KHS, Spot is a "Balanced Buddy" who enjoys scratches behind the ears, flopping over for belly rubs, and being the center of attention. She is one of nearly 200 animals currently available for adoption through KHS and one of thousands of adoptable pets available on Petango.com, a popular website for people looking to find or adopt a pet.

"Giving hope to homeless pets is so very important, whether it's through the Shelter Donation Program or increasing a pet's exposure on a pet adoption site like Petango," says Allison Strickland, Public Relations Manager at Kentucky Humane Society. "Finding homes for the overabundance of pets in our community is a goal that can only be overcome by working together. And partnering with Petango and The Petango Store is one more way for us to help end the unnecessary suffering of homeless pets."

To thank customers for helping homeless pets like Spot, The Petango Store is offering a $10 discount on purchases over $35 this Thanksgiving weekend. In the Holiday Store, shoppers will find fun, seasonal gifts including pet vests and booties, pet stockings for stuffing, and the Petango Pet Lover Gift Bundles. Help pets like Spot, and select the Kentucky Humane Society during the checkout at The Petango Store to show your support.
