Petix Launches WizSmart Gives Back Initiative
Petix, manufacturer of WizSmart dog pads, celebrated its first year in the U.S. by implementing the “WizSmart Gives Back” initiative to support animal shelters and rescue groups located in and around New York City. As part of the initiative, Petix donated over 22,000 dog pee pads for shelter pets, fosters and adopting families to use in helping ease the challenge of dog and puppy potty training.
Recipients of the first annual WizSmart Gives Back initiative include: The Humane Society of New York, Anarchy Rescue & Rehabilitation, Animal Haven, North Shore Animal League America, Posh Pets Rescue, Zani’s Furry Friends, Paw it Forward Pet Pantry, and Rescue Dogs Rock. These organizations were selected with the guidance of the Mayor’s Alliance for NYC’s Animals.
“It’s a great product, the dogs took to them right away”, says Michael Ripinsky, who, along with Gisella McSweeny, runs Zani’s Furry Friends in Central New Jersey.
“Animal Haven is thrilled to receive doggy pads from WizSmart!” said Animal Haven’s Downtown Manhattan Shelter’s Tiffany Lacey.
“Creating a better dog pee pad has always been our mission,” says Krister Holm, general manager of Petix Co., North America. “But at the heart of it all is our dedication to helping each dog and puppy in need of an indoor potty solution have a product that works for them and their caretakers. We are proud of our product and appreciate the opportunity to give back to New York’s organizations that are working hard each day to help animals in need.”
