Press release: Cardinal Pet Care
A clean, well-groomed pet is much more likely to be adopted than an unkempt, scruffy one. To help homeless pets put their “best paw” forward and find forever families, Cardinal Pet Care recently donated nearly 2,500 grooming products from its professional-quality Gold Medal brand to Paw Works, a Ventura County, California-based rescue group committed to saving abandoned shelter animals.
Since its founding in 2014 by Christina Morgan and Chad Atkins, 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 become the first major county in Southern California to achieve “No Kill” status. Paw Works’ Honorary Celebrity Ambassadors include actress Kaley Cuoco and “Today” co-anchor Natalie Morales.
“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.
