YuMOVE, The American Kennel Club's official dog joint supplement, recently announced its charitable partnership with the Mr. Mo Project to help senior dogs across the country live their best and most active lives, for life.
YuMOVE has donated $20,000 to the Mr. Mo Project and will donate products from its joint care supplements, including extra-strength YuMOVE PLUS Joint & Hip Supplement and veterinary strength joint care product, YuMOVE ADVANCE 360. The supplements are formulated with ActivEase Green Lipped Mussel, a source of Omega-3 oils to help ease stiffness, support joint structure and help support mobility in older dogs, according to a news release.
Chris Hughes, founder of the Mr. Mo Project, said that YuMOVE will help the organization expand its reach and care for many more senior dogs across the country.
"Most senior dogs have mobility concerns and YuMOVE will help them become more active as they continue their journey to a new home with a new loving family," he said.
The Mr. Mo Project is a nonprofit that rescues senior dogs from shelters nationwide so they can live out their lives in a loving home setting. The organization coordinates the transport for the dogs across the U.S., recruits foster families for them and provides ongoing support by being a partner in the dogs' care. This includes paying the medical and veterinary bills for the duration of the dogs' lives.
Hughes said he’s seen firsthand the results and long-term benefits from using YuMOVE. “YuMOVE is the first partnership we have ever entertained," he said, adding that the dogs in the project will get to use the product indefinitely.
