It's said good things happened "in threes." (Or was that celebrity deaths?) First came Yellow Tail Wine, then Pilot Travel Centers. And now a third company has withdrawn its corporate support for the Humane Society of the United States in the space of just a few weeks.
The last time a $100 million colossus took on this much water, Molly Brown found herself a lifeboat.
Meet Precious Cat, Inc. The cat litter company has been listed on HSUS's "corporate supporters" page for quite a long time, helping HSUS' "shelter partners program" by donating free products. That's going to stop.
Here's a statement that Precious Cat released a short time ago:
Precious Cat, Inc. has withdrawn it’s sponsorship of the Humane Society of the United States Shelter Partner Program. However, Precious Cat will still continue to support shelters by providing them with free Shelter Kits.
The Shelter Kits contain Cat Attract™ Litter Additive, free coupons for our cat litter products and Litter Box Solutions Booklets. These kits are to be used for cats being surrendered to shelters or for cats in the shelter with inappropriate elimination behaviors. Inappropriate elimination is the number one behavioral reason cats are abused, abandoned, and put in shelters. Precious Cat is dedicated to maintaining a happy, healthy life for all cats. Shelters can order kits by going to our website at www.preciouscat.com and clicking on the shelter page.
We think it's important that the company is continuing to donate its product to hands-on cat shelters, by the way. And we hope cat-owning HumaneWatchers will show Precious Cat some (appropriate) customer love.
