Fremont Animal Services receives grant
Submitted By Mike Banks
Thanks to the Thundershirt Company, Fremont Animal Services has received a grant of 20 Thundershirts, innovative jackets that use gentle pressure to calm pets and ease their anxiety. The company has partnered with the Petfinder.com Foundation to donate Thundershirts to adoption organizations across the country. All recipients are members of Petfinder.
The goal of the grant program is to reduce stress and anxiety in shelter animals, in turn making them more adoptable and find their forever homes. Eighty percent of dogs who wear Thundershirts, suffer less from fear of thunder, separation and travel anxiety, hyperactivity, leash pulling and more.
ÒSince Thundershirt was founded in 2009, weÕve been committed to supporting animal shelters and rescue groups nationwide,Ó said Phil Blizzard, founder of Thundershirt Company. ÒThe Petfinder.com Foundation does incredible work and we are proud of this partnership as we continue our mission of bringing relief to the millions of pets affected by anxiety and fear issues.Ó
