CHARLOTTE, NC, MAY 24, 2018 – Pets For Patriots is joining Prevagen in sponsoring the #45 car this Memorial Day weekend for the NASCAR Xfinity Series ALSCO 300 at Charlotte Motor Speedway to help raise awareness for the mission of caring for our nation’s veterans.

“It’s an honor to join with Prevagen to shine a light on our country’s heroes and how companion pets transform their lives for the better, all while saving the most overlooked, undervalued homeless dogs and cats,” says Beth Zimmerman, founder and executive director of Pets for Patriots. “We’re thrilled at this opportunity to introduce the NASCAR community to our life-saving work.”
“We couldn’t be more proud to team up with Pets For Patriots for this weekend’s race. Improving the quality of life for our nation’s veterans is their mission, which makes Memorial Day weekend an especially important time to create more awareness of their great work,” said Todd Olson, Market Development Manager at Quincy Bioscience, manufacturer of Prevagen. “Prevagen and Pets For Patriots are both firmly committed to helping people live well.”
