Jewelers unBLOCKed™ Goes for the Gold:
Announcing New Philanthropic Partnership with Tess McIntyre Foundation

NEW YORK, NY (September 22, 2016) - Jewelers unBLOCKed™ is proud to announce a new philanthropic partnership with the Tess McIntyre Foundation (TMF), a non-profit organization dedicated to the support of rescue organizations for abandoned Golden Retrievers and other breeds. Named for the organization’s mascot, a Golden Retriever named Tess, the TMF mission is to provide financial support for rescue organizations and veterinarian services to ensure that abused, exploited or abandoned dogs are medically treated and placed in a safe, loving home. Jewelers unBLOCKedTM is pleased to financially support the charitable foundation because the emotional bond that families share with their beloved pets is similar to the unique relationship that human beings share with beloved pieces of jewelry and family heirlooms. This partnership will provide a meaningful and productive way for the jewelry industry to give back and create opportunities for cherished, healthy, long-term relationships with Golden Retrievers and all other breeds of dogs that need medical help prior to adoption.

“Cruelty to animals is intolerable,” states Patricia K. Low, President and CEO of Jewelers unBLOCKed™. “Our partnership with the Tess McIntyre Foundation can make a lasting difference in the lives of exploited or abandoned dogs, as well as stimulate long-lasting, meaningful relationships for families with rescue dogs. We believe this is honorable and fun for the jewelry industry to go for the gold!”

As part of its partnership with the 501(c)(3) non-profit, Jewelers unBLOCKed™ recently helped the TMF support the veterinary aid of a one-year old Golden Retriever, Adami, who was rescued from a dog meat market in Korea. With financial support from Jewelers unBLOCKed™, the Foundation was able to assist the Southern California Golden Retriever Rescue with Adami’s life-threatening heartworm treatment and hospital stay. The TMF is currently seeking additional donations to continue providing assistance to Adami and to help other dogs in need of medical care as part of the effort to help them get adopted.

The TMF has helped multiple rescue dogs obtain veterinary services and find proper homes since August 2015. With the help of Jewelers unBLOCKed™, the foundation hopes to increase the amount of aid they can provide to rescue operations and ultimately assist more dogs to find great homes.
