Pets serviced by the Pasadena Humane Society & SPCA just got sweeter. That’s because they’re being spruced up with a new line of grooming products from Cardinal Pet Care made with sweet Manuka Honey from New Zealand. It shouldn’t just be us who get the best natural products to help maintain and give our skin and hair a boost – our pets shouldn’t be forgotten either!
Manuka Honey for Pets
Called EcoBath Manuka Honey, the line consists of shampoo, conditioner, skin care, and dental products, all formulated with the high-quality honey, native to New Zealand and certain parts of Australia. The magical honey is known for its natural healing and restorative powers, which can help our pets in more ways than one.
In the coming months, Cardinal Pet Care will be donating cases of EcoBath products to animal shelters and rescue groups around the US. The Pasadena shelter was the first in the nation to receive a donation of EcoBath Manuka Honey grooming products, delivered – fittingly – by one of the company’s “HoneyMobiles,” staffed by Cardinal Pet Care Director of Marketing Tom Wien and Marketing & Promotions Manager Kerissa Kelly-Slatten.
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,” explained Cardinal Pet Care President Tony de Vos. “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,” de Vos added. “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 offering 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 attention-attracting HoneyMobiles and their 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.
It’s important that we realize that manuka honey is such a unique and powerful ingredient that should be utilized for the best treatment possible, for both people and animals. For pets with sensitive skin or with several allergies, manuka honey could be the best option for helping to give their skin relief.
