Cardinal Pet Care
Donates Grooming Products
Cardinal Pet Care ( cardinalpet.com) donated grooming products from
its EcoBath Manuka Honey line to the Pasadena Humane Society & SPCA.
Made with sweet manuka honey from New Zealand, the EcoBath Manuka
Honey line consists of shampoo, conditioner, skin care and dental product, all
formulated with the high-quality
honey, which is known for its
natural healing and restorative
In the coming months,
Cardinal will be donating cases
of EcoBath products to animal
shelters and rescue groups
around the U.S. The Pasadena
shelter was the first in the
nation to receive a donation
of EcoBath Manuka Honey
grooming products, delivered
by one of the company’s
HoneyMobiles, staffed by Tom Wien, director of marketing and Kerissa Kelly-Slatten, marketing and promotions manager for Cardinal Pet Care.
It’s all part of the company’s Sweet Dogs For A Sweet Cause charity
initiative, launched in conjunction with the EcoBath line.
“As a longtime manufacturer of pet shampoos and conditioners, we
know how proper grooming can transform an overlooked shelter pet into
one so cute and appealing that she immediately gets adopted,” said Tony de
Vos, president of Cardinal Pet Care. “So when we came out with our EcoBath
Manuka Honey line, we decided to donate these products to shelters in the
hope this would contribute to more rescue pets becoming well groomed and
finding homes. We also know there are many pet parents who don’t have
the means to care for their dogs properly, and may at times rely on animal
welfare groups to help them out. Our donated EcoBath products can be used
by shelters for this purpose too, and given to people who can’t afford to buy
quality grooming products for their pets.”
The Pasadena Humane Society plans to use the EcoBath products in its
Helping Paws program, which helps people in crisis keep their pets by offer-
ing free food and supplies, and assistance with behavior and wellness issues.
“We want to thank Cardinal Pet for supporting Pasadena Humane with
their donations of EcoBath Manuka Honey for us to use for our Helping Paws
program,” said Sara Muriello, director of outreach for the Pasadena Humane
Society. “Sometimes circumstances beyond our control make it difficult to
keep our pets, and programs like Helping Paws make it possible to keep
animals in homes and out of shelters.”
The HoneyMobiles and its cargo of donated product are just one aspect
of the EcoBath Manuka Honey Sweet Dogs For A Sweet Cause program.
EcoBath is also sponsoring adoption events such as the WPA Rescue Rodeo
Grooming Competition, and will soon launch a social media photo contest to
benefit rescue groups.
