Countdown 2...

...a whole new world of pet ownership!

Saturday's Countdown 2 Zero event at the Palm Beach County Convention Center was way cool. As a sponsor, we not only offered a free Scenthound Express to all the pups adopted that day (part of our CleanStart program), but we were able to be on the "front lines" of the adoption initiative, educating folks on their pups' basic maintenance needs.  Many people who were adopting short-haired dogs didn't realize that their new family member would still need regular grooming -- nail trims, ear-cleaning, teeth-brushing, skin and coat-washing -- in order to stay healthy, so it was great to be able to fill them in and to give them our nifty infographic detailing the whys and hows of preventative care. We showed them how easy it can be to keep your dog healthy, comfortable, and happy. 'Cause our mission is to keep dogs and puppies in their adopted homes by making it easy and affordable to care for them.

Plus, let's be honest: watching over 310 dogs, cats, and guinea pigs find homes was pretty much the best feeling ever...
