Comfort Zone® Products Earns Recognition For Commitment To Pet Adoption Through Prestigious Petfinder Seal Of Approval

Stock quotes in this article: CENT, CENTA

Central Garden & Pet Company (NASDAQ: CENT) (NASDAQ: CENTA) is proud to announce its Comfort Zone® brand has been recognized with the coveted Petfinder Seal of Approval. Petfinder is widely recognized as one of the largest and most trusted searchable online databases of animals who need homes.

Comfort Zone® products earned Petfinder’s Seal of Approval, thanks to its dedication to improving the lives of pets and pet owners. Petfinder individually qualifies all Seal of Approval applicants. To be recognized with the seal, each brand, product, service, or initiative must meet strict pet-friendly criteria. Mimicking naturally-occurring pheromones which help animals cope with fears and stress, Comfort Zone® products help to treat behavior issues such as scratching, spraying, and urinating for cats, and help adopted puppies and adult dogs transition to their new home environments. By preventing behaviors that can cause frustration and stress, the brand transforms the pet ownership experience and creates healthy and happy homes for pets and their owners alike.

“The Comfort Zone team is honored that Petfinder is extending the trust and authority of their name to our products through their Seal of Approval,” said Cristina Weekes, SVP Marketing - Animal Health for Central Garden & Pet Company. “As a committed partner of Petfinder, Comfort Zone is proud to support their mission to help all pets become members of a family through adoption. We take great pride in offering a product that can play a pivotal role in helping shelter pets transition to their new homes.”

Comfort Zone® products recently conducted a promotion on its Facebook page, Facebook.com/ComfortZoneProducts, in which the brand donated $7,000 to the Petfinder Foundation. The foundation works with shelters, rescue organizations and animal welfare organizations nationwide to help ensure that no adoptable pet is euthanized for lack of a good home.
