One of the best parts of what we do is being able to help shelters and rescues provide for the animals in their care. For the second year in a row, Adopt-a-Pet.com will be giving away $100,000 in Seresto® product grants. Seresto® collars can help keep dogs and cats protected from fleas and ticks for 8 continuous months. These grants are for shelters and rescues caring for cats or dogs while they are waiting to be adopted. Thank you to our compassionate friends at Bayer for their part in making these grants possible!
