Rescue Expert Blog

JUNE 17, 2021 – Shelters United and Virox Technologies®, makers of Rescue™ Disinfectants, are pleased to announce a partnership to expand access to responsible and efficacious, cleaning and disinfection solutions. Together, the organizations will collaborate to provide access to Rescue Disinfectants to thousands of animal welfare organizations across the United States.  

With approximately 6.5 million companion animals entering U.S. animal shelters every year, there is a high risk that outbreaks caused by pathogens such as canine parvovirus can occur.  The partnership gives Shelters United members preferred access to Rescue Disinfectants and its educational resources so that shelter and rescue workers can help prevent illnesses in the animals they care for.

“We are excited to be a new partner of Shelters United. Shelters, rescues and S/N clinics do such vital work for the communities they serve. We want to help them keep animals healthy and safe.” said Lee Nesbitt, Executive Vice President of Commercial Markets at Virox Technologies.  “Rescue Disinfectants’ ability to disinfect up to 10x faster than other disinfectants along with its non-irritating formulation means that staff and volunteers can focus more of their attention on treating the animals in their care.”

“It is companies like Virox that Shelters United is proud to partner with, “ stated Mal Schwartz, Founder of Shelters United and President of the Institute for Nonprofit Excellence (INPEx). “Partners like Virox who align with the mission of Shelters United and in turn, the missions of our 900+ member nonprofit animal welfare organizations who are on the front lines of saving lives and adopting out healthy, happy pets.”
