This is truly exciting news for both us and the pet owners who leverage our services."

GreaterGood, which operates a vast network of Click to Give™ sites including The Animal Rescue Site™, will now offer its customers access to FamilyPet's popular web platforms.

In addition, customers will have greater access to pet supplies and pet-themed home goods, to help them enjoy time spent with their pets.

"We have an existing network of generous customers who support impactful campaigns through our Click to Give sites as well as through our Gifts that Give More™ and online retail sites," says GreaterGood CEO Tim Kunin. "We look forward to expanding our reach in the communities in which we operate as well as providing our existing customers with a wider variety of products and ways to give back."
