[Moonachie, New Jersey)]Multipet International is excited to announce their partnership with Jill Rappaport to help launch her “Rescued Me™” line of pet toys to benefit animals in need.  The first toy in the launch will be her exciting, updated version of “Shelter Shake™” which sold out in minutes on QVC.


This is a one-of-a-kind heartfelt line-But more importantly the ONLY one aimed at shining a dire light on shelter pets.  Besides having the toys available through retail channels, Rappaport will also be giving these toys to various shelters. Her “Jill Rappaport’s Shelter Shake™” was designed to make noises and vibrate to enhance a dog’s natural instinct to play.


 “For shelter dogs this toy will help get them get engaged, while anxiously waiting in cages across the country. My Shelter Shake™ toy will not only bring joy to these frightened animals, but MOST IMPORTANT make them feel like they are one step closer to a loving home!!” Rappaport says.   The toys will also have a donation incentive program for pet parents who buy them.  


 “I’m so thrilled and honored to be working with the wonderful company Multipet, who not only understands the need for a toy like this, but totally embraces the crucial concept behind it!! Plus, when it comes to pet toys they put the “F” in fabulous, in terms of top notch quality toys and at a wonderful price point!" Says Rappaport.
