(PRESS RELEASE) FERNDALE, WA — carefresh, the only brand of small animal bedding made from 100 percent biodegradable, compostable and sustainable materials, is celebrating Adopt a Guinea Pig Month with the launch of its carefresh Gives Back donation program. carefresh will provide several rescues in the U.S. and Canada with free small animal bedding for adoptable guinea pigs, rabbits, hamsters, chinchillas and more, throughout 2019.

“Our carefresh Gives Back program was the result of our desire to help rescues and small animal adopters provide the very best care possible,” said Leslie Ellis, communications manager at carefresh. “We hear great things about the people who dedicate their time to ensuring small animals find the right homes, and we hope that our donation will make an impact on the care they can provide. Our bedding is all-natural, provides 10-day odor control and is two times more absorbent than traditional shavings.”

carefresh selected All Paws Rescue in Edmond, Oklahoma as its first Rescue of the Month. carefresh donated coupons for 10 bags of free carefresh bedding to use with their adoptable small animals. In addition to the donation, each of their adopters in 2019 will receive a coupon for $5 off their first bag of bedding and the rescue will be featured on the carefresh Facebook and Instagram pages throughout March.

“We’re delighted by the donation from our friends at carefresh. Quality bedding is an important care standard for our organization, so the free bags will help ease the expense of housing our small critter friends,” said Jessica Schwab, Small Critter Coordinator at All Paws Rescue. “In addition, we’re excited to be able to share coupons with our adopters so they can keep their pets on a safe and comfortable product.”

Every other month, carefresh will select a small animal rescue to be featured as its Recue of the Month. Small animal rescues and shelters can submit requests to be selected as a Rescue of the Month through the carefresh Gives Back donation program, or animal lovers can nominate their favorite rescue or shelter, at
