OMAHA, Neb., Feb. 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --There are nearly 70 million dog
owners and 74 million cat owners in the United States, and while many of these
pet owners know it is important to keep their pets healthy, they don't
necessarily think about the things they should be doing on an ongoing basis to
ensure that health. Sergeant's Pet Care Products, a leading pet care product
company, and actress and animal advocate, Tiffani Thiessen, are joining
together to emBARK on Pet Health by educating and empowering these families

The emBARK on Pet Health campaign asks pet owners to take a simple pledge to
become more mindful of their pet's ongoing needs at
Each pledge will trigger the donation of a Sergeant's Pet Health Kit, which
with the help of American Humane Association will be sent to help one of the
millions of animals waiting for their forever homes at local shelters
nationwide. Sergeant's Pet Care Products is committed to donating up to 5,000
kits, which will ensure that these animals are sent home with all the products
they need to get started on a healthy and happy life together after adoption.

"I have always been an animal advocate, especially for those living in
shelters," said Tiffani Thiessen, actress and emBARK on Pet Health
spokesperson. "Keeping my animals healthy and happy is of utmost importance to
me which is why I decided to join Sergeant's Pet Care Products and American
Humane Association. I'd like to help educate and empower pet owners with the
tools and information they need for daily pet care to aid in a long and
healthy life for their animals."

Providing your pet with consistent preventative care can save pet owners from
having to deal with larger problems down the road and can add years to the
life of a pet. This ongoing care can protect pets from disease, behavior
problems or other health issues that if left untreated could eventually come
to cost hundreds or even thousands of dollars.

"As pet owners and leaders in the pet care industry, we understand that pets
truly are members of the family," said Patsy Sumner, vice president of
marketing services. "We know owners want to keep these family members healthy,
so it's our mission to ensure that we are a resource they can call on when
they have questions regarding their overall health needs. The products and
tools we provide are designed to ensure that pets and their families have
long, happy and healthy lives together."

Each Pet Health Kit, estimated at a total retail value of $50.00, features the
most popular Sergeant's products designed to keep pets healthy every day.
These products include:

  oSergeant's Whiff Shampoo
  oPurLuv Sizzlin Strips
  oSENTRY Petrodex Dental Kit
  oSENTRY Calming Collar for dogs with Good Behavior pheromone technology
  oSergeant's Vetscription Joint Eze Plus

"We are honored to join Sergeant's Pet Care Products and Tiffani Thiessen on
this campaign," said Dr. Robin Ganzert, president and chief executive officer
of American Humane Association. "This is a very exciting program that has the
potential to benefit millions of pets and families. We are hopeful that being
able to include these Pet Health Kits in the adoption process will give
families the confidence and tools they need for a successful start with their
newest additions."
