– Portion of July Sales Pledged to Help Animals Impacted by the Oil Spill –
PONTIAC, Mich. – June 17, 2010 – Automated Pet Care Products, Inc., the maker of the Litter-RobotÔ, the only automated, self-cleaning litter box product made in the U.S., is proud to support the National Wildlife Federation (NWF) and donate a portion of their profits from the sale of their consumer pet products in July to help the animals impacted by the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.
Since the oil rig explosion on April 20 in the Gulf of Mexico, millions of gallons of oil have oozed into the water and some estimates calculate the oil flow to be over 70,000 barrels of oil a day – making the BP spill already eight times larger than Exxon Valdez. The NWF is on the front lines helping to access the damage and deploy the resources needed to restore vulnerable nesting and breeding grounds for wildlife on the Gulf Coast.
Automated Pet Care Products is doing its part and has pledged to donate a portion of their profits from the month of July to the NWF to support and protect wildlife and wild places impacted by the BP oil spill disaster.
“The National Wildlife Federation has been on the scene of the BP oil spill since it began and is working around the clock as the voice of wildlife,” says Brad Baxter, President of Automated Pet Care Products. “We are passionate about helping to protect the lives of animals and wildlife and are proud to donate a portion of our July profits to the Gulf Oil Restoration Fund to provide needed assistance as they continue to protect wildlife impacted by this disaster.”
