Press release: VETCBD
Veterinarian-founded cannabis company VETCBD recently announced an 18-month partnership with Best Friends Animal Society to support animals and help the national animal welfare organization achieve its goal of ending the killing of shelter pets by 2025. As the nonprofit’s CBD partner, VETCBD will provide their hemp-derived CBD oil to Best Friends and its Network Partners, aiding thousands of animals in the process.
Best Friends is the latest beneficiary of VETCBD’s One Fur One program—for every tincture purchased, the company donates a tincture to a rescue organization.
“VETCBD has always worked to help as many animals as we possibly can,” said Dr. Tim Shu, founder and CEO of VETCBD. “Research shows CBD can help ease occasional stress and discomfort, and we believe the use of cannabinoid therapy in a shelter setting will increase the chances of adoption for those animals who may otherwise be overlooked.”
Best Friends runs lifesaving programs all across the country, as well as the nation’s largest no-kill animal sanctuary. Working collaboratively with a network of more than 3,300 animal welfare and shelter partners, and community members nationwide, Best Friends is working to Save Them All.
“Through our partnership with VETCBD, many shelter pets across the country will benefit from the calming effects of its products,” said Candi Maciel, director of corporate partnerships at Best Friends Animal Society. “That’s not just healthy for the pet — stable energy is very attractive to potential adopters and should help more pets find great homes. That’s a winning combination.”
VETCBD Hemp mproves the lives of animals through cannabis. Founded in 2015 by veterinarian and medical cannabis pioneer Dr. Tim Shu, VETCBD has become an industry leader through its veterinarian-formulated, triple-tested products aimed at improving quality of life. Through its One Fur One program, VETCBD is committed to helping charities provide better lives for less fortunate animals and making the world a better place for all creatures.
