During the holidays many of us are swept up in a whirlwind of activities
including trimming trees, opening presents and spending time with friends and
loved ones. Once the twinkly lights are extinguished, the gifts are distributed
and the kids go to sleep with full bellies and warm hearts, it’s the perfect
time to reflect on the year that’s passed and make resolutions for the upcoming
As I look back on 2012, I feel the need to reiterate how truly honored and
grateful I feel to be a part of a company devoted to the health and well-being
of companion animals. Our products speak for themselves but they all include one
important ingredient you won’t find on the label – heart. From our customer
service agents to our management team to our dedicated Field Representatives,
everyone here at Life’s Abundance plays a part in fulfilling our mission … to
help dogs and cats lead longer, healthier and happier lives.
As far as my personal role in the Life’s Abundance mission, I’m thankful for the
opportunity to speak with you via emails,
conference calls and through blog posts like this. I appreciate the opportunity
to keep the lines of communication open, not only to share my thoughts and
insights in the hopes you’ll benefit, but also to update you on the work of the
foundation that bears my name.
As you probably know, the Dr. Jane’s HealthyPetNet Foundation is a non-profit
organization that gives thousands of dollars to small, worthy animal rescues,
each of which are committed to saving abused and neglected animals from the
desperations of homelessness and natural disaster. Because of your generosity
and continued business, our non-profit was able to help fund the everyday
activities of small animal rescues and provide emergency aid to animals affected
by the Colorado wildfires and Hurricane Sandy.
While the work of the foundation is a vital part of Life's Abundance, our
central commitment is devotion to the people that use our products: you inspire
us. Without your support and feedback we would not be the company we are today,
and from the very core of my being, I thank you. I consider my role as Executive
Director of New Pet Product Development and Education both a privilege and a
great responsibility, and I am determined and committed to make the very best of
the upcoming year. By monitoring discoveries in nutritional science, I will
continue to improve our innovative health formulations and create new,
cutting-edge products to help improve the health and longevity of companion
animals. With the combined efforts of our strong, motivated team - made up of
our dedicated staff here at headquarters and all of you out in the field - we
can surely make this new year more successful than ever before.
On behalf of everyone here at Life's Abundance, I wish you and your family joy,
health, and success in 2013.
Thank you so much for all you do to make the world a better
place for companion animals.
Dr. Jane Bicks
