September 2, 2020 – Phoenix, AZ – The nonprofit organization Gabriel’s Angels was the beneficiary of fundraising efforts by members of the National Animal Supplement Council (NASC) during the 2020 NASC Virtual Conference in June. A sum of $32,703 was raised by NASC member companies, including NaturVet, as well as several individual donors, and given to Gabriel’s Angels to help the organization continue its work of improving quality of life for at-risk children in Central Arizona. Currently, over 180 Gabriel’s Angels pet therapy teams serve more than 12,000 children from infants to age 18.
“I knew something was going on when I saw Scott Garmon pop up as a speaker in the virtual conference. He wasn’t on the agenda,” said Bill Bookout. “I never imagined he was about to announce that our members raised over $32,000 for Gabriel’s Angels. It was incredible. But not surprising because this is what NASC members do. They care about animals, and about others, and they put that caring into action every single day.”
