Pet Product Company Renews Made in USA Commitment

Scratchnall® Maker Determined to Provide High-Quality Products, Help Rebuild Economy by Keeping Manufacturing in U.S.

Online PR News – 05-January-2011 – – Dillsburg, PA – For the second year in a row, Pennsylvania-based Scratchnall is proud to offer high-quality American made products. The Dillsburg-based company is renewing its commitment to help rebuild America’s economy by having its pet products manufactured in the United States. The company offers a self-grooming/scratching pad for a variety of animals, large and small. Prior to last year, the company’s products were responsibly manufactured in China.

“Once my business was up and running, it was very important for me to find a manufacturer that supports my ‘Keep it in America’ values,” Cynthia Garry, Scratchnall’s inventor, said. “It’s no secret that many business owners, large and small, look for the least expensive ways to become established. When I compared the cost of manufacturing in China to manufacturing in the USA, I found it was fairly comparable. It gives me great pride in being able to sell a product that bears the American flag, and knowing I am able to offer customers a high-quality product without increasing the price.”

Scratchnall is a pad made to be used in stables, barns, kennels, zoos and homes. They are uniquely designed to be used separately, or they can be interlocked to create surfaces in any size or shape. Plus, they easily bend to fit around corners. Garry uses three pads for her horse, Sundance, and her donkey, Teddy. Along with donkeys and horses; cats, cows, lynx, pigs, deer, dogs, goats, rabbits, sheep, people, an octopus – yes, even an octopus – have grown to love her invention. There are various videos posted on the Scratchnall website ( that show different animals enjoying their turns.

While animals may not know the difference in where they are made, Cynthia does. “It has always been my goal to provide pet owners with an American made product,” Garry says. “I am thrilled that I have an American manufacturer, and that I am also helping to keep jobs at home.”
