Vetericyn Loves Animals
Innovacyn announces its fourth annual charity giveaway.


Volunteer Cathelene Nunn of the Central Virginia Horse Rescue (one of the 2013 charity giveaway winners) applies Vetericyn to a semi-feral Appaloosa who came to the organization with leg wounds from fighting with another stallion.

Six lucky animal non-profit organizations will win a year's supply of Vetericyn wound and skin care products, thanks to Innovacyn's fourth annual "Vetericyn Loves Animals" charity giveaway.

Nominations for the online contest will be open from Aug. 20 until Sept. 21 on the Vetericyn website and voting will take place on the Vetericyn Facebook page from Sept. 24 through Oct. 15. The winners will be announced on Oct. 17.

In 2013, the 129 nominated groups received more than 32,000 votes. Vetericyn donated product to every nominated group. "Our goal is to support and raise awareness of the amazing organizations and volunteers who work tirelessly to improve the lives and health of homeless animals," says Tabitha Cromer, marketing communication manager for Innovacyn.

To be eligible for participation, nominated charities must serve animals and be located in a country where Vetericyn products are available (United States, Canada, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Taiwan, Singapore, Malaysia, UK, Ireland, Denmark, Turkey, Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Spain, Russia, Finland, UAE, Qatar, Kuwait and Saudi Arabia).

Anyone can nominate an organization by heading to the Vetericyn website during the nomination period and providing basic information about the group they support. The first person who nominates each winning organization will also receive a prize package.

Organizations are divided into two categories – those that primarily serve small animals (cats, dogs, exotics, etc.) and those that serve large animals (horses, donkeys, etc.). At the end of the voting period, the three large animal and three small animal organizations with the most votes will be announced as winners on Oct. 17.

Last year's winners included Marley's Mutts Dog Rescue in Tehachapi. 

Based in Rialto, Vetericyn provides immediate-acting, one-step wound and skin care products for animals. The sprays and gels are non-toxic, steroid-free, antibiotic-free, and do not contain alcohol or tea tree oils. Vetericyn doesn't harm healthy tissue and is safe for use on all animal species of all ages.
