FORT WORTH, Texas–(BUSINESS WIRE)–October is Adopt-a-Shelter-Dog Month and Tomlyn®,
a North Texas based pet health and wellness company, has partnered with DFW
Rescue Me
, a foster-based, volunteer-run nonprofit rescue group, to
bring awareness to pet adoption and the importance of keeping a new pet

“We’ll be distributing goodie bags to new pet parents throughout October
in hopes of spreading our passion for pet health,” said Tabitha Cromer,
Marketing Manager for Tomlyn®.

Each goodie bag will include four of Tomlyn®’s most popular and proven

  • PILL-MASKER Paste – a bacon-flavored paste; Wheat-, Corn- and BHA-free
  • JOINT & HIP Chews – The Medium & Large Dogs chews contain high levels
    of Glucosamine (900 mg), MSM (800mg), Chondroitin from Perna

“It is a great opportunity to introduce new adopters to some wonderful
products that will help keep their new pets happy and healthy,” said Jim
Wenger, DFW Rescue Me volunteer and board member.

DFW Rescue Me expects to adopt out at least 90 dogs through its presence
at the State
Fair of Texas
®, a process that begins with an application and ends
with a home visit to ensure the dog is going to an appropriate home.

According to the ASPCA,
approximately 3.9 million dogs enter shelters each year, and almost
one-third of those dogs are euthanized. DFW Rescue Me’s mission is to
have a positive impact on those numbers by finding permanent and loving
homes for lost, abused and abandoned dogs, and has found homes for 2,024
dogs to date.

Tomlyn® and DFW Rescue Me began distributing goodie bags to pet parents
at the State Fair on Friday, September 25.
