LOS ANGELES, Nov. 4, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Ultimate Pet Nutrition ™, which provides some of the most advanced nutritional solutions on the market for dogs and cats founded by award-winning veterinarian and international best-selling author Dr. Gary Richter, celebrates their three-year sponsorship of Pets for Vets ®, a nonprofit organization that uses a unique, successful method for pairing shelter pets in need with veterans.

As a result of donations provided by Ultimate Pet Nutrition, Pets for Vets has been able to provide ongoing veterinary care and assistance with monthly pet food for matched veterans, as well as implement a new Robotic Pets Program. The new program, which launched during the pandemic, supports veterans who aren’t able to care for a live cat or dog. To date, Pets for Vets have placed 30 robotic pets to veterans in need.

“Pet companionship can have such an incredible impact on a person’s life. The unconditional love is unlike any other bond on earth,” said Dr. Gary Richter, founder of Ultimate Pet Nutrition. “We’re proud to sponsor Pets for Vets and the work they do to pair brave veterans who return home with physical or emotional injuries with shelter animals for a mutually beneficial bond that makes a difference in both of their lives. Now, these robotic pets can also bring an extraordinary emotional quality to the life of a vet, and we are thrilled we can make this happen for those so deserving.”

“We’re incredibly thankful for the support of Dr. Richter and Ultimate Pet Nutrition,” said Ann Black, President, Board of Directors of Pets for Vets. “We are so grateful to continue our relationship and further the great work that helps veterans and shelter animals.”
