PetRescueRx.com: New Online Pet Pharmacy Donates 100% of Profits to Help Homeless Pets!
Americans love their pets, spending in excess of $56 billion dollars in 2013 to care and provide for them. Meanwhile, animal shelters and rescue groups often struggle to provide for the six - eight million homeless pets in their care. Three to four million homeless animals die each year in shelters – yet the pet pharmaceutical industry is estimated to be more than $7 billion annually. PetRescueRx.com is on a mission to reverse those shelter numbers by providing the funding needed to do so.
As a veterinarian, animal shelter volunteer Glenn Buckley, DVM experiences the need firsthand and had a vision that he could create a business model to fund the cause close to his heart. With the launch of PetRescueRx.com, pet owners and consumers can now purchase pet medications and supplies online to care for their pets – and also provide needed funds to help homeless animals. It's a new breed of business that puts Pets Before Profits. Using the Newman's Own business model, created by actor Paul Newman to support charity organizations, Glenn and his brother, Scott, co-founded PetRescueRx.com for the sole purpose to provide a revenue stream to support non-profit animal welfare organizations. Neither brother takes a salary and are funding the pet pharmacy from their own respective businesses. They are putting their money where their hearts are with the Pets Before Profits vision.
"As a veterinarian, I am able to help one pet at a time," Glenn said. "With PetRescueRx.com, we're able to provide a crowd-funding business model that allows pet owners to provide direct funding support to the local animal shelters or rescues of their choice while purchasing needed pet medications and pet supplies. After spending time in animal shelters as a volunteer vet, being repeatedly greeted by wagging tails, hopeful faces, and some so scared they try to blend into the wall, I knew something more could, and should be done, to help them. If pet owners share our vision and choose to purchase from PetRescueRx.com, we have the ability to provide a multi-million dollar revenue stream to fund animal rescue and sheltering resulting in the lives of millions of homeless pets saved."
Glenn believes PetRescueRx.com is different from other online pet medication pharmacies in four key areas:
1. PRICE. We offer great savings on the products people need to keep their pets healthy at prices below most online and retail pharmacies.
2. OUR CUSTOMERS. Our customers select the animal shelter or rescue they would like to support with every purchase. They make the difference.
3. PURPOSE. Our business is for the sole purpose of raising funds to support animal shelters and rescues. No stockholders or investors to compensate!
4. SELECTION. We carry all the top brand products and generics of prescription pet medications such as Heartgard Plus, Metacam, Rimadyl, Vetmedin, Sentinel, Baytril, Iverhart Max, Novox as well as hundreds of others. Our nonprescription line includes Advantage II, Advantix and Frontline Plus flea and tick preventatives, ear cleaners, Dasuquin and Cosequin for arthritis and joint health, John Paul Pet shampoos, conditioners, vitamin and mineral supplements. Our pet treats and supplies offered are from Newman’s Own Organics and Halo which also support pet adoption and work to reduce the number of homeless pets.
People have options today on where they purchase their pets medications. Many large retailers are now selling pet medications and making huge profits. Pet Rescue Rx believes these profits should be going to the homeless pets which need care until they can be adopted into loving homes. That is the mission of Pet Rescue Rx.
Pet Rescue Rx was started in June, 2013. As of September 30, 2014 they have given back over $20,000.
