The leader in soy-biobased artificial grass, SYNLawn is partnering with the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) International to provide their product to rescue shelters, sponsor a military pet rescue and offer discounts to homeowners with a rescue pet. SYNLawn hopes to bring awareness to the needs of homeless pets and promote adoption.

“We are pleased that our collaboration with the SPCA International allows us to donate premium synthetic grass in rescue shelters for pets that haven’t always been in friendly environments,” said George Neagle, SYNLawn’s vice president of sales and marketing. “The partnership will help raise much-needed funds for pet rescue and adoption.”

SPCA International is excited to install SYNLawn’s products at partner shelters where natural grass is impossible to grow or cost prohibitive. SYNLawn is also offering $250 off pet turf installations to any customer who has rescued a pet from an animal shelter. The company’s products are safe for animals and helps keep pets clean.

In addition, SYNLawn is committed to helping SPCA International rescue dogs for U.S. military service members stationed worldwide. While on deployment, members of the military often befriend stray dogs that live with them on base and become their battle buddies. Through the Operation Baghdad Pups: Worldwide program, SPCA International saves these patriot pets and reunites them with their military friends in the United States. SYNLawn will sponsor at least one of these military rescues in 2017.

America’s energy security benefits because SYNLawn artificial grass is made with a U.S. soy-based backing called BioCel™ manufactured by Universal Textile Technologies. BioCel uses soy-based polyol technology developed with support from the soybean checkoff.  Based on UL third-party verification, soybean oil displaces 60 percent of the petroleum-based polyurethane in BioCel.  Using soy in industrial products like SYNLawn artificial grass helps to create new markets for U.S. soybeans and jobs here at home.

“We are thrilled to have this generous support from SYNLawn,” said Meredith Ayan,  SPCA International’s executive director. “They are truly committed to helping homeless pets, our U.S. military personnel and shelters worldwide. Whenever someone buys a SYNLawn product they can feel proud of SYNLawn’s commitment to making the world a kinder, safer place for animals.”
