Spectrum Brands, providers of quality pet products from brands such as Nature’s Miracle, FURminator, Dingo and Tetra, made an incredibly generous matching gift to Pet Partners this holiday season.

Spectrum Brands has a wide range of products for all types of pet owners – from food to litter solutions, grooming solutions to bedding.

President and CEO, Annie Magnant said, “Partners like Spectrum Brands make a big difference to our fundraising efforts.
