Four year anniversary 0f Melamine Pet Food Recalls 2007-2011
December 23, 2010
About a year ago, we started a special section at Itchmo Forums called Pets In Need. We had some lists with where to get help with pet food and vet care, but it was in December of last year that we created a place where this information could be found according to state (US). The Pets In Need section continued to grow, with information like how to get a pet wheelchair free, how to save on prescription medications, and so on. We got curious about how many people had visited us for that information in a year’s time. The count was 161,672 when we checked it December 22. This just includes those looking for either food or vet information in the US and Canada. To all those who visited us, we hope you were able to find the help you needed; we will continue adding to our Pets In Need section whenever new sources of help are available.
Thank you, Menusux, for all your hard work and dedication to helping Pets In Need.
