RIALTO, Calif, Nov. 2, 2011 – Innovacyn, the makers of Vetericyn animal healthcare products, today announced the winners of the company’s “Vetericyn Loves Animals” online charity contest. Horse Plus Humane Society won the equine/large animal division, while Pet Helpers Inc. was the small animal winner. Each will receive a year’s supply of Vetericyn products.
Thirty equine/large animal organizations and 49 small animal groups were nominated on the Vetericyn web site in September. Voting took place on the Vetericyn Facebook page during the month of October, with thousands of votes coming in for these worthy charities. The nominators of the winning organizations received prizes including a Vetericyn gift basket, a year’s subscription to Cesar’s Way magazine, and DVD sets from Clinton Anderson’s Downunder Horsemanship.
Vetericyn has also offered to send product to each of the 79 nominated charities. “Once we learned more about these organizations, it became immediately clear that every single one is doing amazing, critical work, which is why we decided to provide Vetericyn products to all of them,” said Rina Dakanay, social media specialist for Innovacyn. “We have been hugely inspired by these charities and the people behind them, and are honored to pitch in and help them keep the animals they serve healthy.”
