PET OWNERS CAN HELP SAVE WILD ANIMALS AROUND THE WORLD

 WASHINGTON, March 10 /PRNewswire/ -- World Wildlife Fund (WWF), the largest private conservation organization in the United States, working worldwide to protect endangered wildlife and wildlands, said it is pleased to be associated with PETsMART on its Project for the Preservation of Animals.
 The three-month promotion in all PETsMART stores will offer pet owners and pet lovers nationwide the opportunity to lend support to protect wild animals all over the world. Through the purchase of stuffed animals at PETsMART stores nationwide, pet owners will help World Wildlife Fund fight to save endangered species and the natural resources on which all life depends. $1 from every sale of these items will be donated to World Wildlife Fund.
 "To make a difference in protecting the world's rich biological diversity, we must all get involved," said Ginette Hemley, director of WWF's TRAFFIC program, which monitors the global trade in wildlife. "Project for the Preservation of Animals gives people a tangible way to participate and make the difference."
 According to PETsMART's Promotion Manager Cozette Phifer, "Project for the Preservation of Animals demonstrates that PETsMART is not only concerned for animals around the neighborhood, but around the world as well."
 Phifer notes that this project is part of PETsMART's ongoing policy to protect wild populations of animals. The store only offers domestically bred birds and fresh-water fish. The company also assists human organizations in placing homeless pets.
 Headquartered in Phoenix, PETsMART has 70 stores located throughout Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Illinois, Missouri, Nevada, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Texas and Utah.
 Founded in 1961, World Wildlife Fund is dedicated to protecting endangered wildlife and wildlands and promoting the wise use of Earth's natural resources. With 1.5 million members in the United States, WWF has 2,000 projects in 140 countries.
