EmBARKing on Pet Health at the Animal Shelter

by Nicole on March 13, 2013

I’m excited to be working with Sergeant’s to let you know about their emBARK on pet health program. As you all know, Chester and Cleo are two of the most important people in my life and there isn’t anything I wouldn’t do for my loving canines!

The emBARK on Health program asks people to take an online pledge committing to attend and care for their pets. For every pledge, Sergeant’s will send a pet health kit to participating shelters with the help of the American Humane Association (AHA). These kits will go home with newly adopted pets from AHA shelters nationwide to ensure their health care regimen is off to a great start. Additionally, each person who takes the pledge will receive a coupon for $3.00 off their next Sergeant’s or Sentry purchase to help keep their own pet care plan on track.

Sergeant’s has been a leading pet brand for over 140 years, with everything from flea and tick products to home medicine products and treats!

CLICK HERE TO PLEDGE: I took the pledge! It literally took 1 minute to complete the pledge and they sent me a great $3 off coupon for doing it – a win-win!

Last month many of you joined me at a great Twitter party with Tiffani Thiessen and this month I wanted to let you all know that there are shelters all over the country that are receiving these pet health kits based on your pledges! Near me the Big Dog Rescue Ranch at 10948 Acme Rd in Wellington, FL (561-309-3311) has been a very deserving recipient of these kits! I unfortunately didn’t get to swing by the Big Dog Rescue Ranch to check out their facilities, but I have been able to volunteer in the past at a Shih-Tzu/Small Dog Rescue.

I loved my volunteer experience.  The facility I volunteered at was a free roaming cageless facility and so you could just sit on the couches or chairs and be showered in love by these great dogs! Some were feisty, some older, some puppies, but they each had their own distinct personality.  I loved that they could be at the shelter for the rest of their lives and didn’t have to live in cages or face being put down.  The dogs were so happy to have the human interaction and I loved watching the dogs interact with each other with their “pack” mentality.  Since I can’t have more than 2 dogs in the community where I live I will have to settle with these visits to the shelter as a way to give back and help these dogs who so deserve loving homes!

Please think about volunteering at your local shelter! Even if it’s just for a few hours each month, you’ll feel great about it and so will the pups! Please also remember to take the pledge so that Sergeant’s will donate pet health kits to participating shelters!

This is a great program! I just pledged. I live in an apt and I can’t have pets so that really sucks.My daughter and her fiance have 3 dogs and a cat. I know they’ll appreciate the coupon. Thank you for sharing a great cause :)
