OMAHA, Neb., Feb. 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- There are nearly 70 million dog owners and 74 million cat owners in the United States, and while many of these pet owners know it is important to keep their pets healthy, they don't necessarily think about the things they should be doing on an ongoing basis to ensure that health. Sergeant's Pet Care Products, a leading pet care product company, and actress and animal advocate, Tiffani Thiessen, are joining together to emBARK on Pet Health by educating and empowering these families during Responsible Pet Owners month.

Each pledge will trigger the donation of a Sergeant's Pet Health Kit, which with the help of American Humane Association will be sent to help one of the millions of animals waiting for their forever homes at local shelters nationwide. Sergeant's Pet Care Products is committed to donating up to 5,000 kits, which will ensure that these animals are sent home with all the products they need to get started on a healthy and happy life together after adoption. "I have always been an animal advocate, especially for those living in shelters," said Tiffani Thiessen, actress and emBARK on Pet Health spokesperson. "Keeping my animals healthy and happy is of utmost importance to me which is why I decided to join Sergeant's Pet Care Products and American Humane Association. I'd like to help educate and empower pet owners with the tools and information they need for daily pet care to aid in a long and healthy life for their animals." Providing your pet with consistent preventative care can save pet owners from having to deal with larger problems down the road and can add years to the life of a pet. This ongoing care can protect pets from disease, behavior problems or other health issues that if left untreated could eventually come to cost hundreds or even thousands of dollars.
