One Bottle of Pet Shampoo at a Time, This Group Funds Vital Pet Services
One Pup Inspires a Movement
According to The Lucy Pet Foundation’s estimates, 80 thousand pets are still euthanised each week in the US. Saddened by the state of animal welfare in their country, the dedicated team at Lucy Pet Products decided to do something about it.
We met up with them at Global Pet Expo and again recently at BlogPaws. We love their passion and mission, and of course their beautiful pets.
It all started with a small mix-breed dog that founder, Joey Herrick, came across with his family. Mistaken for a coyote, the pup was in rough shape, and Herrick took her to the vet to get cleaned up and spayed. Surprisingly, the vet told Herrick that the dog was pregnant and would give birth soon. Herrick took care of the dog, now a member of his family named Lucy, and gave each of her puppies a forever home. Knowing that dogs like Lucy give birth on the streets every day, Herrick understood that “happily ever afters” like hers were quite rare for unwanted puppies. That’s when he decided to create a foundation to provide free neuter and spaying operations to pet owners that were not able to afford it.
The foundation utilises mobile adoption and neutering clinics to make pet care accessible for communities.
Lucy Pet Products
Lucy Pet Products is a pet line designed by Herrick and his team to provide quality supplies to owners. They are Products with a Cause and use the profits to fund their important charity work. The faces of the brands, Surfin’ Jack and Ricky the Cat, are rescued animals themselves, promoting both responsible pet ownership and the love of shelter pets!
The product range is formulated with extreme care, using the latest in pet science to create high-performance dog shampoo, conditioning spray, and kitty litter. The fur treatments are gentle and promote healthy, soft coats while the litter has the ability to stop ammonia from ever forming, creating a truly scent free box. It’s clear this company has quality on the forefront of this line’s performance ability.
Saving animals, helping communities and producing great products. This is a truly winning scenario.
