How we're making a difference
A percentage of all NaturVet® product sales are donated to supporting Pet Rescue Groups and their efforts. The NaturVet® Foundation is comprised completely of non-paid volunteers. All funds raised or donated are applied to these efforts with only minor expenses and administrative fees deducted.
The NaturVet® Foundation, a charitable, non-profit organization, goals are to: help save the lives of homeless pets and to take this objective into the community by educating and teaching compassion, proper care and love for animals while supporting alternative NO-Kill Shelters. We’re committed to working as a team, along with NO-Kill Pet Shelters and local Humane Society branches to help support and raise funds for animal rescue.
- Support & raise funds for No-Kill Rescue Groups & Humane Society branches
- Raise Funds for the addition of more local based Humane Society facilities
- Teach children and the general public the value of caring for animals and spaying and neutering them.
"We’ve sent over 10,000 kids on field trips to Local humane Societies to learn how to be responsible pet owners and the importance of pet adoption."
Foundation Board Members
Scott Garmon is Chairman of the NaturVet Foundation Board of Directors. Scott is also President and CEO of NaturVet/Garmon Corp. He founded the company in 1979 as a retail pet supply store. Eventually, Scott migrated from retail to wholesale to the manufacturing of Natural pet supplements and helpful training aids. Scott and his wife Traci have rescued many dogs together since 1994. Together they founded the NaturVet Foundation in 2005 to raise money for humane education and treatment of animals. Scott feels strongly that it is up to each of us to give back to the animals that can bring such great joy into our lives.
Traci has been rescuing animals all her life. It started with Baby sharks when she was 10 years old. Since then, she has personally rescued many dogs, and placed even more with great homes. Traci owned and operated a grooming shop in Fallbrook for 19 years before retiring to become the volunteer champion, leader, and President of the NaturVet Foundation. She works to make a difference in the lives of pets in our world every day. Traci always wants you to remember that as Ghandi said “the greatness of a nation can be judged by the treatment of it’s animals”
I started working at The Garmon Corp. in 2003. With an extensive background in “big business”, I looked forward to being a part of the pet industry. In this wonderful environment, I became more acutely aware of the desperate situation of abandoned and misused pets. When asked to become a Founding Board Member in February 2006, I was honored to be a part of “change” through education of children and support of local humane societies.
Jodi joined the Garmon Corp. family in 1998 and has been a NaturVet Foundation board member since its establishment. She has rescued many pets including a pitbull named Bubba, a very loud a beagle named Andy and three tortoises. Jodi''s passion is educating children on the proper care of pets and how to be a responsible pet owner.
It is a privilege to be part of this group of committed people with the common goal in mind. "Dedication to saving the lives of homeless pets through education, support and innovative programs". When I was asked to join the NaturVet Foundation Board of Directors in 2009, I jumped at the chance. As President of ImageZone, I have worked with Garmon Corp. providing services since 1997 experiencing first hand the company''s integrity and all-around heart for helping pets and their owners. Rescued Pets: Jake, Precious, Precious II, Precious III, Diesel, MeowMeow, Harley, Porsche, Annie, Scrappy & BullDozer.
From early on in my life I have always felt a strong connection with animals. The bond I had with my pets growing up taught me that all creatures have unique personalities and that they all have the right to be treated humanely. I had volunteered at several humane societies before and always wondered how I could connect my work as a graphic designer with animals. I was thrilled at the opportunity to combine my passion for animals with work when asked to work at the Garmon Corp. I feel very privileged to have been asked to be on the board of directors for a cause I feel so strongly about.
