PRAI for PAWS
As a board member for the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS), Cathy Kangas has always been passionate about helping animals and built PRAI Beauty on this foundation. PRAI products are never tested on animals and have proudly earned the Leaping Bunny seal. The company supports a number of animal organizations through the PRAI for PAWS initiative that donates a portion of proceeds to helping animals.
Through PRAI for PAWS, Cathy has supported international campaigns ending the slaughter of baby seals in Canada, reuniting soldiers with the dogs they befriended in Afghanistan, and building a safe haven shelter for stray dogs in French St. Martin. She recently launched “Free the Shelters” to help homeless animals and in the first two months she rescued more than 600 animals at shelters across America by sponsoring adoption fees.
In addition to serving on The Humane Society of The United States' Board of Directors, Cathy was a founding member of the HSUS National Council and chairs the HSUS Equine Leadership Council. Furthermore, Cathy partners alongside notable high profile friends like Bill and Hilary Clinton and the Duchess of York to highlight various humanitarian and animal related causes globally. Cathy was also the recipient of the 2012 HSUS 'Compassion in Action Award' for her wonderful work with animals.
Cathy believes it is important to defend the defenseless and give a voice to those who have none. And she believes how we treat those without power is a statement of our character. To Cathy, and the entire PRAI Beauty team, this is true beauty!
