Press release: Nylabone
Nylabone, an iconic brand in the Central Garden & Pet portfolio, is partnering with National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc. for the fifth consecutive year to raise breast cancer awareness with a custom-made pink chew toy. For every chew toy sold, Nylabone donates $1 to NBCF, supporting its mission to provide help and inspire hope to those affected by breast cancer.
“Many of us are unfortunately familiar with what someone endures when they are diagnosed with such a prevalent disease like breast cancer,” said Glen S. Axelrod, president and CEO of Nylabone Products. “Early detection and increased awareness can have a life-saving impact, and that’s exactly where NBCF’s mission comes in. Through our continued partnership, we at Nylabone are proud to support this organization and raise breast cancer awareness through our very special chew toy.”
It’s believed that early screenings for the disease, increased awareness, and better treatments all contribute to a decreased breast cancer death rate, according to the American Cancer Society. However, breast cancer continues to account for about 30 percent of all new female cancers each year. Because there is no known cure for breast cancer, NBCF is committed to helping women detect breast cancer in its earliest stage when it’s more treatable.
Designed in the brand’s best-selling Souper shape, the pink Nylabone Power Chew toy is made of durable nylon to challenge even the most extreme chewers. It offers a unique textured surface to help clean teeth and features delicious chicken flavor. It is recommended for dogs over 50 pounds and currently available for purchase at select online retailers.
Many pet parents can relate to the unconditional support dogs provide humans, and Nylabone’s pink Power Chew toy helps furry friends do the same for those affected by breast cancer. In fact, dogs’ companionship is linked to health benefits, including reduced feelings of loneliness and anxiety, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. It’s Nylabone’s mission to join hands and paws to help those when they need it most.
