Prince Lorenzo Borghese Helps Animal Shelters in Need

Pin It

Helping pets in peril live happily ever after, Royal Pet Club (founded by reality personality Prince Lorenzo Borghese, a former star of the series The Bachelor) has partnered with Animal Aid, a non-profit animal rights and rescue agency, to provide funding to animal shelters in low-income areas.

March 2012 will mark the start of donations from Royal Pet Club to the paws cause, with $2 from every new Royal Pet Club customer and 5 percent of profits from  Royal Treatment pet care products (such as natural dog shampoos, conditioners and other pet grooming supplies with organic ingredients) supporting a spay/neuter program through Animal Aid’s veterinary partners throughout the country.

Speaking out about the plight of pet overpopulation, Lorenzo Borgese stated: “If people would spay and neuter their pets, this country would be a no-kill country and there would be no need to euthanize a dog because of over population. To euthanize man’s best friend in order to control the population is simply barbaric and must be stopped.”

Pre-approved veterinarians throughout the United States will be offering this service at reduced rates to Animal Aid and as a result, dog owners who financially can’t afford to spay and neuter their dog, will be able to do so for free. Royal Pet Club will transfer funds directly to Animal Aid and Animal Aid will then allocate these funds to the approved veterinarians. Animal Aid’s logo will also begin appearing on all Royal Treatment grooming products as a way to bring awareness to the importance of spay and neuter programs throughout the United States.

A true prince in every sense of the word, in the past Prince Lorenzo Borghese has helped to shed light on the link between pet stores and puppy mills through an undercover investigation; raise funds at the Bideawee Ball; cheered for the courageous canines at the American Humane Association’s first annual Hero Dog Awards and helped orphaned Fidos and felines find forever homes as the host of Celebrity Catwalk’s 2011 holiday adoption event.
