In honor of National Love Your Pet Day, we are excited to announce we’re collaborating with Seresto® once again for the Circle of Love grant program. For the second year in a row, we will award a total of $100,000 in Seresto® product grants to help shelters and rescues more easily care for dogs and cats waiting to be adopted. One lucky organization will receive a product grant worth over $17,000 – that’s a lot of Seresto®! To us, loving your pet includes helping protect them from fleas and ticks so they can be as happy and healthy as possible.
We want you to show homeless pets your support by helping us pick some of our winners! Throughout the year, we’ll share a handful of organizations that will go head-to-head on social media for our grand prize social grants! Keep checking this page for their stories and links for where and how to vote!
These product grants truly make a huge difference in the lives of rescue pets. See what some of our past recipients have to say about what the grants meant to their organization:
“Seresto collars are perfect for our active dirt road doggies! They help prevent fleas and ticks on our dogs and remove the monthly maintenance worry during the busy summer months.” – Dirt Road Doggies
“I wanted to send you a BIG thank you for your Seresto® collar donation. Our rescue is so blessed to have received this.” – Bridge to Home Animal Rescue
Check out what the other 2019 recipients have to say about how their grant benefited their organization!
Fort Wayne Animal Care and Control is a city shelter that pulls out all the stops when it comes to helping animals. The city and shelter recently received a “Better City for Pets” certification and they joined the million cat challenge. With a yearly intake of more than 10,000 homeless pets, they really do all they can to help as many animals as possible.
According to the shelter’s social media and marketing manager, Holly Eggelston, a Seresto® grant could really be a game changer with how they help their community.
“We frequently serve lower income citizens who do not have a lot of financial resources. Purchasing flea and tick prevention for their animals is often not an option,” Eggelston said. “During the summer months we treat all animals for fleas and ticks. Due to budgetary restrictions, it’s generally 30 days of protection and the adopter is then on their own for continuing preventative treatment. Being able to offer adopters eight months of protection would be a game changer for the animals in our community as that would get them through the warm months without the expense of monthly flea prevention.”
