We thought this would be a fun way to help the facility raise money, and keep people active and engaged with their fitness. It’s a win-win for everyone involved, no matter the species.
DENVER (PRWEB) March 21, 2018
PepPod, a company known for its plant-based energy tablets packed with more than 75 trace minerals, vitamins, amino acids and electrolytes, is stepping up to help save exotic animals, partnering with Sentiv to take steps — literally — to help end animal cruelty with a fundraiser for The Wild Animal Sanctuary.
Sentiv, or Incentivizing Fitness for Social Impact, is a platform for “fit-lanthropy,” which is philanthropy through fitness. Sentiv is an app whereby anyone can set up virtual fitness challenges to help raise money for their charity of choice, PepPod’s choice being The Wild Animal Sanctuary.
“The Wild Animal Sanctuary is a tremendous organization funded entirely by donations, located outside Denver here in our home state of Colorado,” PepPod CEO Jennifer Pearce said. “We thought this would be a fun way to help the facility raise money, and keep people active and engaged with their fitness. It’s a win-win for everyone involved, no matter the species.”
The Wild Animal Sanctuary, established in 1980, is a 720-acre facility that is home to more than 450 animals, including African lions, tigers, black and grizzly bears, wolves, ostriches, emus, camels and more. The sanctuary’s goal is to help alleviate cruelty to large, exotic and endangered captive wild animals that have been abandoned or subjected to deprivation and neglect, and to provide care and boarding for the rest of their lives.
PepPod is happy to team with Sentiv for a virtual charity walkathon March 16-May 16. All steps logged with a phone’s fitness tracking software are converted into a monetary donation from PepPod, with all proceeds benefitting The Wild Animal Sanctuary.
The exotic animal trade is the third largest source of illicit profits in the U.S. and the world. Many of these exotic animals are abused, neglected and abandoned. Simply walking can help end this captive wildlife crisis by benefitting the great work of the Wild Animal Sanctuary.

PepPod is the health and wellness side of plant-based energy and nutrition, for workouts, workdays and everything in between. It is all natural and vegetarian friendly, and also can serve as a tool to treat or prevent hangover symptoms. Each pod contains 71 mg of caffeine, derived from organic green tea, to provide just enough to aid in nutrient absorption and provide alertness — without the crash.
The team at PepPod also would like to encourage anyone in the area to visit the facility, which is located just 30 miles northeast of Denver. The sanctuary is not a zoo and offers a completely different experience. The rescued animals live in large, open habitats and are not forced to be front and center just so people can see them easier. It takes three to six hours to tour the facility, so arrive at least four hours before the posted closing time (sunset).
“Even the strongest need our help sometimes,” Pearce said. “Your steps can help end the captive wildlife crisis. All you have to do is walk.”
