For inquiring minds that are curious to know where our company name came from–it is quite an interesting story.
The tale begins when one of our owners became involved in animal rescue in 2002. The group she was with was rescuing Maine Coons (a breed of cat) in New York State.
There was one particular 10-day-old, fire-engine-red kitten, who stole their hearts. She had a bad eye infection, but it was love at first sight. She was named Shenandoah, after the Shenandoah Mountains in Virginia, and soon after became known by the nickname Doah Doah. The kitten turned into an incredible, beautiful cat that loved life and having fun. In honor of this special cat companion comes our name – Shenandoah Biotechnology.
To continue to honor Doah Doah, our company donates $2 per order to 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.
