Wings of Rescue and whiskerDocs Join Forces to Improve the Lives of Shelter Pets

Chicago, IL, November 19, 2016 --( Wings of Rescue and whiskerDocs begins a collaboration to provide 24/7 support to pet parents of newly adopted shelter pets.

Beginning 11/17/2016 Wings of Rescue, in conjunction with their many shelter partners, will begin providing a 1-month free membership to whiskerDocs 24/7 vet helpline to any pet parent who adopts a new shelter pet to whom they provided transportation. This opportunity provides shelter pet parents with the much needed support to ensure a smooth and healthy transition from a shelter to their forever home.

"Wings of Rescue’s mission is to safely transport at risk pets from high intake shelters to no kill shelters from where they will be quickly adopted into loving homes," said Ric Browde, spokesperson for Wings of Rescue. "The health of the pets being transported is of paramount importance for Wings of Rescue and its partner receiving shelters – and we want to make sure they have a long and healthy life – which is why we are partnering with whiskerDocs."

whiskerDocs is a helpline for the furriest members of the family, no matter what’s going on. Their pet experts are available 24/7 and have decades of experience to help pet parents make the right decision when they need it most via phone calls, email and live chat. CEO Deb Leon believes that “providing veterinary support to shelter pet parents is key part of our company’s mission of helping to create healthy, happy lives for our whiskered children. Partnered with Wings of Rescue allows us to expand our reach to help shelters continue to do the wonderful work they do.”

Shelter pets often have health and behavioral concerns that aren’t easily evident to either the shelter or the adopting parents. When in doubt about what to do, the pet parent’s will now have a veterinarian available 24/7 through whiskerDocs who can help with those concerns. There’s also an extensive library where they can obtain tips and important health information. Both Wings of Rescue and whiskerDocs believe that this support is vital to the health and happiness of the shelter pet and their new pet parents.

This partnership is all about providing the most loving and healthy forever home possible for shelter pets who deserve so much.
