Hear ye, ear ye. Healing could be coming soon for an untold number of ear-infected dogs biding their time in U.S. animal shelters and rescues.
Pet King Brands reported that the Westmont, Illinois, company has donated 12,000 bottles of Zymox Plus Advanced Otic ear products worth $240,000 to shelters and rescues nationwide.
“We receive stories all the time regarding the impact Zymox has had on pet ear health,” company President Pamela K. Bosco said. “We are also aware that shelters are overcrowded and underfunded with a large pet population suffering from painful ear infections. We realized we could help on a large scale. We want pets to become more adoptable sooner.”
The company stated that the donation was part of its commitment to animal welfare. Pet King Brands has employed an animal advocate for nearly 10 years and operates a department dedicated to cause marketing.
“Pet King Brands will continue to help in the cause of promoting pet adoptions, reducing homeless pets and supporting pets in shelters through other substantial donations in the future,” the company added.
