Big Apple Pet Supply & Hagen Dogit/Catit to Provide $12,000 Product Fund to Animal Shelters & Rescues

Facebook Promotion Encourages Animal Rescues and Shelters to Register and Partner Up to Win Animal Shelter Product Fund.

Hauppaugue, NY, January 26, 2012 --( Today, Animal Shelters and Rescues are struggling to care for the abundant amount of abandoned and abused animals. These organizations have found themselves in situations where just caring for the simple day to day maintenance of these animals has been a challenge. Simple products such as food, crates, collars, leashes, treats are at a minimum. It is imperative that we, in the pet community, address these issues so that Animal Shelters and Rescues can care and find loving homes for all.

For the past year, Steven Spitz (AKA: Vegan Petman), CEO of Big Apple Pet Supply, has been using his large number of followers to help animals with his Facebook promotions that have resulted in thousands of dollars in product funding for various animal shelters and rescues all over the country. Spitz has heard the desperate pleas from shelters and rescues for help and has teamed up with pet product company, Hagen Dogit/Catit to provide $12,000 in product funding to the winning shelter & rescue organizations. While most of these types of promotions pit shelter against shelter, this one is different because shelter and rescues must pair up with another shelter or rescue to enter the race.

The $12,000 Animal Shelter Product Fund Contest is now underway. Animal shelters and rescues will partner with another shelter, register for the contest, then people vote for their favorite animal shelters, with the top vote-getting team of shelters sharing the product funding. Animal rescues and shelters have until February 15 to sign up, and then voting will begin and run through March 9. The winner will be announced March 13.

“Speaking to countless numbers of great people running so many caring and loving Animal Shelters & Rescues across the country, I am struck with the amount of dedication and perseverance these people have in making a difference in the lives of so many suffering animals,” said Steven Spitz, CEO of Big Apple Pet Supply. Spitz says, “I decided to partner with Hagen Dogit/Catit company based on a true camaraderie and respect. The uniqueness of this Shelter/Rescue Contest is that it asks Shelters and Rescues to become partners in the contest… allowing for more shelters/rescues to join the contest. It is also a way of allowing these organizations to applaud and support each other’s efforts and commitment to helping animals.”
