Morton Safe-T-Pet Review & Giveaway
Winter can be hazardous for people living in cold-weather regions – and for our four-legged friends. To help keep pets safe this winter, Morton Salt’s Safe-T-Pet® brand ice melt and the ASPCA® (The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals®) announced a public service campaign that kicks off on the first day of winter, Dec. 22, with “National Keep Pets Safe in Winter Day."
The purpose of the campaign, which runs through January 2012, is to share important pet safety tips with as many pet owners as possible to help reduce winter weather-related pet injuries and fatalities. These tips can be found on Morton’s website and Facebook.
Here are just a few tips to keep in mind:
Using pet-friendly (salt
free and chloride free) ice melters such as Morton® Safe-T-Pet®.
Keeping anti-freeze high
on shelves in sealed containers and quickly cleaning any spills/leakage.
Limiting outdoor time for
pets when temperatures drop below freezing.
Checking warm spots on
cars, such as hoods, where animals might seek shelter from the cold.
Keeping pets on a leash,
especially dogs, which can become disoriented or lost when once familiar
surroundings are covered in ice and snow; and
Making sure pets are
wearing identification tags and proper outerwear as needed.
Help ASPCA with One Click
The Simply Sweet Home Cats are proud supporters of the ASPCA..
As part of this campaign, Morton is making a $20,000 donation to the ASPCA to help continue its life-saving work and provide resources to pet owners on pet wellness.
And when you "like" Morton's Facebook pagefrom Oct. 1 through Jan. 31, 2012, Morton will donate $1 to the ASPCA, up to $55,000. This additional funding from Morton will be used by the ASPCA to raise awareness about the importance of proper winter pet care and safety.
Morton’s Safe-T-Pet Ice Melt - I was happy to receive a review pack of items, which included the Morton Ice Melt. Since we had two big rounds of snow last year and are expecting another cold winter in 2012, I'm sure this will come in handy.
Our kitty cats are happy little indoor cats, but we can still use the ice melts, and I know our Neighbor Dogs, Buddy and Barney, who often frequent our yard, will be happy to know we have the Safe-T-Pet Ice Melt.
Other deicers form a liquid brine, often containing chlorides that can irritate pet's paws and if ingested, irritate the pet's stomach. The Morton's product contains a chloride-free organic compound called Urea, making it a non-toxic, non-irritatingalternative to salt based ice melters. The product is also less corrosive to metals and concrete.
