FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Animart Pet Store to Travel to NYC on Rescue Mission
Animart will be traveling over 30 hours to save many cats from potential high kill shelters.
MADISON, WI – Animart Pet Store has partnered up with a rescue group, Alleykattz, on the East Coast and will be driving to Staten Island on Sunday, January 19th to rescue many cats that would otherwise have been put down in a high-kill shelter. This will be the 3rd animal welfare trip out-of-state that Animart has endeavored on in the past three years. In the state of Wisconsin alone, Animart locally rescued over 325 cats and kittens in 2018
This will be the second time that Animart has traveled to the East Coast with the goal of rescuing at-risk cats. Back in 2016 Animart traveled to the NYC area and brought back to Wisconsin more than a dozen cats. Each of these cats over the following months found their Forever Home’s through Animart’s Feline program.
“We’re very excited to be partnering up with AlleyCatz” said Lisa Lasack, President of Animart Pet Store. “To save even one life means everything to me and the staff at Animart and we are grateful for our company to have this opportunity”
You can follow Animart’s expedition to NYC on their Facebook pages as well as their website. They will update customers on their journey, the well-being of the cats, the veterinary care they will be provided and updates when they find their Forever Homes through Animart’s Feline Program!
