VIP Petcare and ASPCA join with NBCUniversal owned television stations to ‘clear the shelters’ on July 23

VIP Petcare to Provide Free Preventative Veterinary Services to Adopted Pets.
ASPCA to Award Grants to Partner Shelters.

July 18 2016

NEW YORK, NY – July 18, 2016 –VIP Petcare has joined with NBCUniversal Owned Stations, a division of NBCUniversal, to support the second annual Clear the Shelters pet adoption campaign. VIP Petcare will provide free preventative veterinary services, including vaccinations, microchipping, diagnostic testing and prescription flea, tick and heartworm preventative medication to all adopted pets during Clear the Shelters day which takes place on Saturday, July 23.

Additionally, the ASPCA® (The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals®) has awarded grants to participating shelters all across the country.

The support of VIP Petcare and the ASPCA – for our second annual Clear the Shelters nationwide pet adoption campaign – is sure to encourage another successful year for this incredible effort,” said Bruce Kallner, Senior Vice President of Strategic Sales and Marketing, NBCUniversal Owned Television Stations. “Each of these companies is leaders in pet care and pet wellness and together we will help many pets find forever homes this year.

We are excited to be a national sponsor of this important event,” says Will Santana, Founder and CEO of VIP Petcare. “As a leader in pet wellness and preventative care, VIP Petcare is dedicated to improving the lives of pets and the people who love them.  Clear the Shelters will help many pets find a home and we are committed to helping those pets get a healthy start on their new lives.

Collaboration is critical to saving lives, so we’re proud to join this national team effort to make Clear the Shelters another great success,” said ASPCA President and CEO Matt Bershadker. “We’re providing nearly $150,000 in grant funding to help participating shelters find safe and loving homes for as many local animals as possible.

The second annual Clear the Shelters event comes after last year’s highly successful inaugural effort, which resulted in nearly 20,000 pets finding new homes through an unprecedented partnership between the NBCUniversal Owned Television Stations and hundreds of animal shelters located all across the country and in Puerto Rico. The nationwide day of action emptied dozens of animal shelters across the country and inspired local communities to take action and open their homes to animals in need.
This year, NBCUniversal Owned Television Stations’ nationwide pet adoption effort will feature special shows and programming that will air on local stations before and after the pet adoption drive (check local listings). Each participating local station will also engage local viewers with news and information across various platforms, including on air during local newscasts, online and via social media, to help raise awareness about the actual pet adoption day as well as related animal welfare issues, like the overpopulation of shelters.

For more information about the national pet adoption drive, visit www.ClearTheShelters.com. You can also follow the effort on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram by using the hashtag #ClearTheShelters (#DesocuparLosAlbergues, in Spanish). Additionally, Clear the Sheltersthemed Snapchat filters will be activated on July 23 for pet adopters and supporters to enjoy as they document their day.

Vip Petcare Extends Special Promotion For Heartworm Awareness Month

Company Provides Free Heartworm/Lyme Combo Test with Purchase Through July.

May 20th 2016

Windsor, California, May 20, 2016 – VIP Petcare, the leader in veterinary pet wellness care, is promoting heartworm awareness during the month of May. As part of its efforts to encourage all pet owners to protect their pets against the dangerous onslaught of heartworm, the company is offering a free heartworm/lyme combination test with the purchase of any package at its Community Clinics nationwide. To give even more pet owners the opportunity to protect their pets, the company is now expanding this special offer through the month of July.

For a variety of reasons, even in regions of the country where winters are cold or the climate is dry, the American Heartworm Society recommends year-round Heartworm prevention. Heartworm has been found in all 50 states. Most states have “hot spots” where the heartworm infection rate is very high compared with other areas in the same state, however the incidence of heartworm disease in a particular area is not always predictable from year to year. Factors affecting the level of risk of heartworm infection include the climate (temperature, humidity), the species of mosquitoes in the area, presence of mosquito breeding areas, and presence of animal reservoirs (infected dogs, foxes, coyotes).

Lyme disease is also a danger to dogs nationwide. The threat of Lyme disease is on high alert this year in all 50 states and in more than 60 other countries. The disease occurs when ticks infected by the Lyme Disease bacterium bite a pet (or a human) and transmit the pathogen into the body. Different regions carry different tick species and the possibility of infectious pathogens often fluctuates based on weather and climate.

VIP Petcare provides both testing and prescription preventative medication to combat these dangerous diseases. These services and products, and many others, are available through the company’s network of over 2,000 Community Clinics nationwide. The clinics are conveniently located at neighborhood pet stores, feed stores and other host locations. Started in 1995 by high school friends Will Santana and Ken Pecoraro, VIP Petcare’s mission is to extend the availability of high value pet preventative and wellness veterinary services to all pet owners. These services include vaccinations, diagnostic testing, microchipping with a free nationwide registration included, and prescription parasite prevention and medications. The clinics are scheduled for specific times at host locations on both weekends and weeknights, and do not require an appointment.
