No More Homeless Pets Conference vendors collaborate to help local Best Friends’ Focus on Felines campaign
When we join forces to work with others, more can be done to bring about a time of No More Homeless Pets was one of the central themes of this year’s No More Homeless Pets Conference. That theme resonated not only with attendees, but the show’s vendors joined in that same spirit!
At the end of the conference, a couple of vendors decided to donate their wares to the Best Friends Las Vegas Focus on Felines program. What a welcoming and heartwarming act that was!
Don Bohne with Plastic Molded Products Inc. donated four cases of their ant-proof “The Mote” pet bowls. This unique and maintenance free food and water bowl requires no water, chemicals or poisons to deter ants from infiltrating the food and water left for our four-legged friends to enjoy. This is especially helpful for those of us with community cat colonies to feed and water. Just fill the inner bowl with water or food and let “The Mote” do the rest. Ants don’t get in and are harmlessly and humanely directed away from the cat’s food and water by never allowing a path to be made by the lead ant for the others to follow.
