Our thoughts and prayers are with all those that have been medically impacted by the COVID-19 (Corona-virus) outbreak. We still have a long way to go and know that everyone is also impacted in some way economically by these challenging times. There are more obstacles ahead and yet with the love our pet companions, friends, relatives and colleagues, we will get through this together.
As current regulations have curtailed business activity for our NYC office, we have taken a “paws” and temporarily relocated to our satellite office in Kansas City, Missouri. Although as I write this Kansas City is under a “stay at home” order and the entire country is under watch with closures to We are still able to receive mail forwarded from the NYC location but all mailings for our contests will either be drop shipped or mailed from Kansas City at this time. We hope to resume activity in NYC as well as Kansas City in the very near future.
In the meantime, we will continue to bring you “good news for pets within the context of COVID-19 as best we can — just as we have done the last 20 years. We encourage you to stay up-to-date in real-time about coronavirus for your own health at cdc.gov and for any issues related to your pet and you at avma.org/coronavirus.
Be safe and be well, practice the CDC guidelines of social distancing, washing your hands, etc. Please remember to check in on your human friends, but spend a little bit more time with your furry friends these days. They need it too.
Sending a virtual hug your way…..
