New Philadelphia, Ohio (April 7, 2009) – The Genesis Awards, presented by the Hollywood office of the Humane Society of the United States, honors major news and entertainment for raising public understanding of animal issues. The 23rd annual awards event took place March 28 at The Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, Calif.
Nurtured Pets™ of New Philadelphia, Ohio, donated items to the gift bags that were presented to attendees at the event, including celebrities the likes of Oprah Winfrey, Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi.
The company donated 1,000 Large Trial Packs of its Anti-Lick Strip Prevent™ products, a total donation valued at nearly $10,000. The bandages deter obsessive licking and chewing behaviors, which helps prevent hot spots and lick granulomas from forming. When applied to the problem area on a dog or cat, the Anti-Lick Strip product delivers powerful deterrents to the animal’s nose and tongue. The all-natural ingredients are 100 percent safe and manufactured in the USA. “Nurtured Pets is dedicated to the health and wellness of pets,” said Josh Weirich, marketing specialist for Nurtured Pets. “When given the chance to become involved with the Humane Society of the United States and the Genesis Awards, we jumped at the opportunity. We can’t think of a better organization to align ourselves with that shares our same value in creating a healthier lifestyle for pets.”
