QUAKER PET GROUP LAUNCHES SILVER TAILS™ SENIOR PET PRODUCTS
Innovative Solutions Serving Over 80 Million Senior Pets
NEW YORK, NY – (September 9, 2011) If you know anyone with a pet, you understand that pets are part of the family. But did you know that approximately 50% of the U.S. pet population (over 80 million dogs and cats) is over age 7? With increased access to superior healthcare, pets are living much longer and deserve special products created for their evolving needs.
After extensive research and understanding the challenges pet-parents face with their aging pets and the needs of pets themselves, Quaker Pet Group (QPG) created an extensive health and wellness line just for seniors to help make them happy, healthy, and comfortable in their older years: SILVER TAILS™ Senior Pet Products.
To-date, an entire product collection of health and wellness solutions for the underserved and ever-growing senior pet population has been non-existent. QPG is launching its Silver Tails collection with the following senior product innovations: a hand-held massager (standard and infrared), a specially-formulated dental care system, bamboo-charcoal pet bed covers and mats, magnetic therapy collars, Bottoms-Up™ support harnesses, age-appropriate chew toys, flavor enhancing supplement powder, and soft-chew treats.
“A silver tail deserves to keep wagging. As pet-parents ourselves, we saw first-hand the changes our four-legged friends go through later in life, and saw an opportunity to not only fill a needed market gap but also make a real difference in pets’ lives,” states Quaker Pet Group’s President and Chief Operating Officer Neil Werde. “Easing the stress associated with the care of older pets, we know Silver Tails products will make a huge impact towards improving the lives of pets and pet-parents. Our retail partners like PETCO® understand the needs of senior pets, and we are thrilled they are bringing the entire line of product innovations to market to improve the lives of this fast-growing and underserved segment of aging pets.”

Natural Healing for Cat, Dogs, Horses and Other Animals Arizona to Alaska Born in Phoenix, Lisa lived in numerous Arizona towns as a child and later spent several years in California. By young adulthood, she was in Alaska and started mountain climbing. She climbed in South America on different expeditions, seeking summits in Ecuador, Chile and Argentina. She also traveled solo through Europe and Asia. From Fire to Shield to Evergreen Climbing left Lisa wanting strong first-aid skills and she signed-up for an Emergency Medical Technician course. The class included a ride-along with the Fire Department which exposed her to the rewards of helping people in crisis. She moved to Oregon for training and was soon back in Alaska, pulling 24-hour shifts as a paramedic. “Paramedicine is physical and autonomous and demanding and technical. I loved it.”

Arizona to Alaska
Born in Phoenix, Lisa lived in numerous Arizona towns as a child and later spent several years in California. By young adulthood, she was in Alaska and started mountain climbing. She climbed in South America on different expeditions, seeking summits in Ecuador, Chile and Argentina. She also traveled solo through Europe and Asia.
From Fire to Shield to Evergreen
Climbing left Lisa wanting strong first-aid skills and she signed-up for an Emergency Medical Technician course. The class included a ride-along with the Fire Department which exposed her to the rewards of helping people in crisis. She moved to Oregon for training and was soon back in Alaska, pulling 24-hour shifts as a paramedic.
“Paramedicine is physical and autonomous and demanding and technical. I loved it.”
After a number of years, she transferred to the Police Department. Her second career started with the position of street officer and she still claims it is the most demanding job in law enforcement. After a few years, she became a detective, working in the Vice unit and later in Crimes Against Children, with a special assignment as a Hostage Negotiator. She went back to the street as a sergeant and later returned to investigations, supervising Internal Affairs.
“All those years in emergency services made the city a map of memories, many of them very sad. I wanted to move…a couple of thousand miles.”
Riding, Writing and Running
Lisa and her husband relocated to the Evergreen State and adopted two former racehorses from a rescue facility. She turned to writing, working on both mysteries and mainstream novels. One novel was selected as a finalist in the 2007 Malice Domestic contest and another made the Top 100 in the 2008 Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award contest. Lisa also began competing in the obscure sport of Ride and Tie, a back country trail race that combines running and riding, covering distances of 20-35 miles.
“Writing is such a sedentary pursuit, it would be dreadful without the promise of hours on trails.”
Miles alone on the million acres that is Washington’s Olympic Peninsula left Lisa wanting protective company. She found a German Shepherd at a pet rescue site and taught him tracking, as she had with her previous dogs.
“My last shepherd earned the FH title twice. This was before the existence of the FHII and VST titles. He also earned the Schutzhund III with decent scores, but we never V-scored”. (The FH, or FährtenHund, is a German sport tracking degree. A V-score is a judge’s rating at or above 96%.)
She resurrected the training log (the Canine Scent Work Log) she had created and used when teaching her previous trackers. Her rescue dog V-scored at his first trial and she sent the log to Alpine Publications. Alpine released the book in 2007

GUILTY VERDICT IN WASHINGTON, DC CAT-POISONING CASE
Alley Cat Allies welcomes conviction; calls for Dauphine’s dismissal from Smithsonian Institution
BETHESDA, MD —Alley Cat Allies, the only national advocacy organization dedicated to the protection and humane treatment of cats, today welcomed the guilty verdict in the case of Nico Dauphine, a Smithsonian researcher charged with attempting to poison a colony of feral cats in a Washington, D.C. neighborhood.
“We are satisfied with this verdict,” said Becky Robinson, president of Alley Cat Allies. “Americans care about cats and will not tolerate cruelty towards them. We are grateful to law enforcement and to the prosecutors for treating this crime with the seriousness it deserved.”
Dauphine, a researcher at the Smithsonian Institution’s Migratory Bird Center, was found guilty of misdemeanor cruelty after an investigation last spring showed her in video surveillance placing rat poison in the cats’ food bowls.
Research summaries posted to the Migratory Bird Center’s web site indicate that one of Dauphine’s research projects involved “mounting small cameras on domestic cats that roam outdoors to see how they affect wild bird populations,” putting Dauphine in direct contact with cats.
“We call on the Smithsonian to immediately dismiss Ms. Dauphine from her position and cancel any research projects in which she was involved,” said Robinson. “Her conviction for attempting to kill cats, along with her history of condemning cats in research, leaves her work suspect of major bias. Her work should be discredited and disregarded by the scientific community.”
“Killing cats is illegal, and feral cats are protected under the law,” said Robinson. “Anti-cruelty laws protect all cats—pet, stray, or feral—in every state and the District of Columbia. Americans who are demanding humane approaches for cats are not going to allow this kind of cruelty to go unpunished.”
