Petix Introduces “Wizsmart Gives Back” Initiative
Celebrating the success of year one in the USA for its’ premium dog pee pads, Petix launched the first annual “WizSmart Gives Back” initiative to support animal shelters and rescue groups located in and around New York. Jump-starting the initiative, Petix donated more than 22,000 WizSmart pee pads to be used by shelter pets, fosters and adopting families.
Recipients of the first annual WizSmart Gives Back initiative include: The Humane Society of New York, Anarchy Rescue & Rehabilitation, Animal Haven, North Shore Animal League America, Posh Pets Rescue, Zani’s Furry Friends, Paw it Forward Pet Pantry and Rescue Dogs Rock. These organizations were selected with the guidance of the Mayor’s Alliance for NYC’s Animals.
“Creating a better dog pee pad has always been our mission,” says Krister Holm, general manager of Petix Co., North America, in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla. “But at the heart of it all is our dedication to helping each dog and puppy in need of an indoor potty solution have a product that works for them and their caregivers. And by helping to eliminate unnecessary stress around potty training or convalescence, we hope to keep the focus on the positive impact that pets bring into the lives of others. We are proud of our product and appreciate the opportunity to give back to New York’s organizations working hard each day to help animals in need.”
WizSmart dog pads provide an all-in-one, premium dog and puppy pad option for dog owners requiring either a short or long term indoor potty solution that keeps both dog and home clean, said company officials. Made from recycled unused diapers, WizSmart offers an eco-friendly, super absorbent, quick drying and leak-proof alternative to other products. WizSmart pads also feature patented stay put adhesive tabs that can be used to secure the pad to the floor and the wall at a 90-degree angle, creating a perfectly placed target for male dogs, officials added.
WizSmart Dog Pads are available in more than 200 retail stores in the Northeast as well as in all 45 locations of Kriser’s Natural Pet, and the 40 stores of Mud Bay, the Pacific Northwest healthy pet food and supplies retailer.
