Cardinal Pet Care Donates Grooming Products To Paw Works
To help homeless pets find forever families, Cardinal Pet Care donated nearly 2,500 grooming products from its professional-quality Gold Medal brand to Paw Works, a Ventura County, Calif.-based rescue group committed to saving abandoned shelter animals.
Since its founding four years ago, Paw Works has successfully rescued and rehabilitated over 6,000 homeless dogs and cats, including many special-needs animals that are older or have disabilities. The group is credited with helping Ventura County to become the first major county in Southern California to achieve “No Kill” status.
“When Cardinal Pet Care heard of the amazing work Paw Works has been doing to save the lives of abandoned pets, we immediately wanted to join their effort,” said Tony de Vos, president of Cardinal Pet Care. “As a manufacturer of pet grooming products that has been in business for more than 70 years, we know what a huge difference grooming can make in enhancing a pet’s appeal and increasing its chances of adoption. It gives us great pleasure to know that our products will be used by Paw Works for this purpose.”
The Gold Medal products donated to Paw Works address a variety of grooming needs, and include: medicated shampoo, breath spray, tear stain remover and antiseptic spray. All of the products were manufactured at Cardinal Pet Care’s family-owned Southern California facility using solar power.
Founded by Chad Atkins and Christina Morgan, Paw Works recently acquired its first boarding facility and training center. In addition to its rescue work, the group provides free spay/neuter, vaccination, veterinary care and training services to underprivileged communities.
