Philanthropy
 
We believe giving is not just about a donation - it's about making a difference. That's why we created our new Philanthropy Program and have partnered with the SPCA and Karma Rescue .
 
Our care is reflected in our actions! To date, Pura Naturals Pet has donated close to $30,000 of product towards animal rescue and efforts with aiding shelter pets. Our employees have also donated time and money towards the cause. We've have many of our partners, like Sho-Link step up and graciously donated transport vehicles and labor to move rescue animals that would have been euthanized to make room for displaced family pets due to Hurricane Harvey. Read more about this with an article from the OC Register, with added coverage on FOX News LA, KTLA TV,and KFI Talk Radio.
 
Along with selecting the SPCA and Karma Rescue , we have also partnered with High Hopes Therapeutic Riding Center . High Hopes is one of the first therapeutic riding centers in the country to be accredited by the Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship International (PATH Intl.)
 
Since 1974, they have served a wide range of ages from 3-70 years, to improve the lives of people with cognitive, physical, and emotional disabilities through the benefits of therapeutic horseback riding and other equine-assisted activities,

Special Events
 
 
Paws for Life graduation
 
Karma Rescue is celebrating their 10th Paws for Life graduation. In this program, dogs are pulled from high kill shelters and go to prisons where inmates train the dogs on up to 60 commands.
 
When the dogs graduate, they are given to a U.S. Veteran with PTSD to serve as a service dog. The graduation this September was an emotional experience, as highlighted in an Blog article by a company attendee from Pura Naturals Pet.
 
NYC TTPM Media Event
 
We recently attended a Pet Media event in New York City.   At this venue, Pura Naturals Pet was able to meet with key editors at an array of consumer publications including New York Times and New York Post. We also met with a variety of social media influencers that have a significant pet following.
 
It was fun to discuss trends and the variety of American Made product from Pura Naturals Pet, as well as our philanthropy efforts and charities we support.
 
Look for exciting media coverage in the future.

Marketing 
 
You asked - we listened. Pura Naturals Pet has created vinyl Shelf Talkers for a few of our top SKU's as a marketing tool for our retailers. Shelf talkers may be small in concept and size, but they can have a  big impact on sales , serving as an effective attention-getter and a silent salesperson that persuades and directs customers through concise product information.  Ask your Pura Naturals Pet Sales Rep for details!
 
Retailer Highlight
Lucky Premium Treats
Pura Naturals Pet has some great retailers, both digital and traditional brick & mortar. We wanted to spotlight the on-line, American Made, Lucky Premium Treats , and how they've grown their business since starting in 2013.
 
What makes Lucky Premium Treats unique?
We make 100% all natural, healthy dog treats with just one or two ingredients. We source all our farm-fresh meats (Beef, Chicken, Turkey) and fruits and vegetables from the USA, with the exception of our sushi-quality Tuna, we get from Trinidad. We make all our Lucky Treats onsite daily, so today would could be hand-wrapping our #1 customer favorite Chicken Wrapped rawhides to slicing Apple Rings or Turkey Jerky Wafers.
 
What are your top Pura Naturals Pet SKU’s?
Lavender & Chamomile Shampoo, and the Ultimate Outdoor Protection.
 
What trends are your customers looking for?
All-natural, safe products that have value which works perfect with featuring Pura Naturals Pet products.
 
How have you promoted your brands to your customers?
We promote using our Mailing List which we email all our customers about special promotions, updates to our website and improvements we’ve made in our company and our on Lucky Treats. We use social media daily to connect with our customers and let them know of sales on our website. We’ve done charity events around Atlanta and given away free hundreds of bags of Lucky Treats!

Flea & Tic Spray for Dogs
 
The Pura Naturals Pet Flea & Tic Spray for Dogs is strictly for canine use and recommended for dogs over 16 weeks.
 
Peppermint Oil and Clove Oil is part of our active ingredients, which can be harmful to cats.
 
Our spray is an effective way to protect your dogs from pests naturally. This non-toxic, gentle spray is the perfect blend of natural oils that work wonderfully together to ward off fleas, ticks and mosquito's.
 
The peppermint oil and rosemary oil also help to soothe and aid skin irritation, while cedar oil is great for conditioning a dogs skin and coat.
