SPCA International

www.spcai.org

The mission of SPCA International is to raise awareness of the abuse of animals to a global level, to teach and foster good pet parenting practices, and to promote spay and neuter programs around the world with the goal of eradicating the need to euthanize healthy and adoptable companion animals.

SPCA International was founded in the United States in 2006. One of SPCA International’s main goals is to use their national platform to support independent shelters. The majority of local SPCAs and Humane Societies around the world are not affiliated with national organizations as most people presume. SPCA International strives to assist and encourage these independent shelters through alliance building, information networking and national and international programs.

In 2007, SPCA International launched their first major shelter initiative, Shelter of the Week. SPCA International has since supported and honored more than 19 local shelters in need. In the fall of 2007, SPCA International founded Operation Baghdad Pups. This program assists soldiers stationed in Iraq and Afghanistan who have befriended dogs and cats by providing safe transport of these military mascots out of the war zone and back to the United States. Currently, SPCA International is working to bring more than 25 animals out of the war zone to safe new homes.

Their Web site at www.spcai.org provides a global information and referral resource to animal guardians and advocates throughout the world to those who seek a shelter or wish to adopt a shelter animal. SPCA International continually works to improve the quality of life to animals all over the world through their innovative programs.

STIHL Inc.

“Porsche Engineering Group Finds STIHL BR 600 More Fuel Efficient
Than Competitors” • www.stihlusa.com

A study conducted by the Porsche Engineering Group GmbH found that the STIHL BR 600 backpack blower is up to 28% more fuel efficient than competitive models, which can provide up to $644.00 in fuel savings per unit in two seasons, depending on fuel costs and run time. The STIHL BR 600 is also the cleanest running backpack blower in its class with 73% less emissions than current Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) requirements (based upon information reported as of December 8, 2008, on the EPA Web site).

The Porsche study tested backpack blowers at wide open throttle 85% of the time and at idle for the remaining 15%. All the units tested were the U.S. versions, the same as available in stores, and all units were set to their respective manufacturer specifications during testing.

The STIHL BR 600 led the competitors’ models in the Porsche study, ranking the highest in fuel efficiency. The STIHL BR 550, STIHL’s value-priced backpack blower, was also tested in the Porsche study and was found to be 16% more fuel efficient than the BR 600. In a separate comparison, based on specifications from each manufacturer and not associated with the Porsche study, the BR 600 also was ranked as the lightest weight model and the most powerful in air volume in its class.

To learn more about STIHL low-emission and fuel-efficient products and the results of the Porsche Engineering Group GmbH test, visit www.stihlusa.com/BR600. For more information on EPA reporting, visit www.epa.org.
