“We’ve done a contest in Oc-
tober called Monster Pet Rescue,
which is a photo contest of pets
in costumes that pet parents post
to social media, and based on the
number of votes/likes/shares,
funds are awarded to qualified
shelter/rescue of the pictures
with the most votes,” he said.
Vetscience also supports a
number of its retail customer
events that benefit local shelters
and rescues, much of it via pro-
duction donations, DeLorenzo
In addition, the company regu-
larly supports the Humane Society
of North Texas, DeLorenzo said.
“They are developing a pro-
gram to help other rescues raise
funds in a turn-key, easy-to-
manage program,” he said. “We
will be discussing ways to sup-
port that effort in the next cou-
ple months and may help them
launch it nationwide in 2017.” Vetscience LLC supports Monster Pet Rescue and North Texas Rescue.
disabled members of the community through partner organization Reach Inc., which works to

The company also supports
Working Dogs for Conservation,
a Montana-based international
nonprofit that trains the world’s

“With proper training, these
dogs’ amazing noses can do
things such as detect weeds
before they break the surface,
animals that live below ground
and aquatic organisms at lev-
els that laboratory methods
cannot match,” Williams said.
“They’re also at the forefront
of the fight against wildlife
trafficking, training dogs to
detect poisons, snares, and the
transport of ivory rhino horn
and pangolin scales.”
West Paw provides annual
in-kind contributions, supplying
Working Dogs for Conservation
with free products and matching
any donations it asks its consum-
ers to contribute.
“In November 2015, we donated $2 for every Zogoflex and
Zogoflex Air dog toy purchased
on westpawdesign.com,” Williams said.
Due to its success, the company
repeated the program last month.
The company also donates its
toys to the organization, he said.
“Since they began over 10
years ago, Working Dogs for
Conservation has been using
West Paw Design’s superdurable
and recyclable Zogoflex dog toys
to reward, train and communicate with shelter dogs,” Williams
said. “Previously considered ‘
unmanageable’ as family pets, these
superstar dogs have gone on to
protect wildlife and wild places.”
Partnership with the charity
benefits both parties, Williams said.
“The main way we hope to
help the charity is by brining
them awareness as well as giving them money to sustain their
important programs,” he said.
“It’s helped West Paw Design as
a company by showcasing one of
the organizations that is near and
dear to the employees’ hearts.”
