The Story Behind Shenandoah's Name
For inquiring minds that are curious to know where our name came from, it is quite an interesting story. One of our owners became involved in animal rescue in 2002 and this is how our story begins. They were rescuing Maine Coons (a breed of cat) from the area around Shenandoah Mountain, in upstate New York, on the Appalachian Trail. There was one particular 10 day old, fire engine red kitten, who stole their heart. She had a bad eye infection but it was love at first sight and she was named Shenandoah (affectionately shortened to Doah Doah). The kitten turned into an incredible, beautiful cat that loved life and having fun. In honor of this cat, Shenandoah, comes our name Shenandoah Biotechnology.
To continue to honor Doah Doah, our company also donates a dollar per order to the Hurricane Pets Rescue (HPR). This is a nationwide, no kill, non-profit rescue that provides shelter and care for the animals that become homeless because of a hurricane.
