Pet-Super-Store expects to see an increase in sales from the new HAPPY Act amendment introduction.

We are very excited to see our pet owner's rewarded for taking care of their pet's health

Recently, the Congress of Thomas passed a tax deduction bill that would include pet expenses. This new bill is set to increase sales in certain products.

"We are very excited to see our pet owner's rewarded for taking care of their pet's health," said Victoria Knight, PR Director of "We plan on seeing our health-related pet products dramatically increase with the passing of this bill."

The bill, called the HAPPY (Humanity And Pets Partnered through the Years) Act, allows up to $3,500 in deductions from any expenses used for a legally owned, domesticated animal to improve its life. This can include veterinary hospital bills, grooming or pet sitting bills or special products such as orthopedic dog beds, elevated dog bowls or dog steps required for heath-related issues in pets.

Representative Thaddeus McCotter, R-MI, introduced the bill with the supporting arguments stating 63 percent of American families own a pet, and pets are proven to increase their pet owner's positive mental well-being.

The proposed HAPPY Act amendment will apply to the December 31, 2009 taxable year.

"We are fully prepared to handle increased services from this amendment," said Knight. "It's about time that owners were rewarded for caring for their pets."
