Helping America’s Rescue Dogs


Nationwide GET MOVING Campaign Helps Shelter Dog Mobility

Consumers can participate by nominating local shelters 

Every year, 3.3 million dogs enter shelters throughout the U.S., with older dogs, or those with mobility problems, much less likely to be adopted. Shelters are overcrowded, and especially challenging for senior dogs or dogs with stiff joints and restricted movements.

As part of its mission to keep pets ‘active for life,’ YuMOVE launched a national GET MOVING campaign designed to help aging and less mobile shelter dogs be more comfortable, active and enjoy a better quality of life. YuMOVE is the UK’s #1 dog joint supplement,*which recently launched in America. 

YuMOVE has already reached over 400 shelters across America, each housing dozens of dogs, from NYC to Los Angeles, offering its clinically-proven** joint supplement YuMOVE to help ease stiff joints and improve mobility within 6 weeks. 

And there were improvements, coast to coast:

  • Elfie’s Refuge in Tampa, Florida — Elfie Rodriguez, the owner, gave it to Lizzo, her senior Terrier mix, who was almost lame. Elfie says, “Lizzo could barely walk when I started him on the YuMOVE product, and in just 2-to-3 weeks he was like a puppy again.”
  • Lizzy’s Animal Hospice in Austin, Texas — Karen Cole, its Executive Director and Founder, started Harley, a three-year-old Terrier mix, on the product after a devastating car accident left him with a fractured pelvis, damaged hips and no chance of surgery. He recovered on his own by putting more weight on his front legs, but according to Cole, “the YuMOVE product has helped Harley improve little by little, day by day.”
  • Cottonwood Ranch in Aspen, Colorado –Ted Hoff, Owner of and Celebrity Dog Trainer, has trained dogs of former Presidents, Congressmen, CEOs, rock stars and C&W musicians, heard about YuMOVE’S GET MOVING campaign and opted in to support the program using the product on Cabela, his own dog. Ted’s 16-year-old German Shorthaired Pointer was having mobility issues and stopped following Ted and his wife Vanessa on daily bike rides. After starting Cabela on the product, Ted said, “We noticed improvements in a week, and now after several weeks, Cabela is once again following us uphill as we bike. I haven’t seen anything like it.”

YuMOVE is expanding the campaign by asking consumers to participate by nominating a local shelter in their area.
