If your pup has a DJ gig coming up, or just enjoys graphic new-wave style prints, you might want to have a look at the gear over at Fifi Runn. Our favorite is the “Electric 80′s” – a heavy-duty, machine washable riff on the decade of neon and Valley Girls. Perhaps in homage to the trickle-down economics of that era, each month 10% of merch sales are donated to a worthy pet-centric cause.
Wake me up, before you go-go . . . for a walk!
Save yourself (and your best friend) the anguish of being unintentionally separated with the nifty Blanket pet I.D. service. Simply purchase one of Blanket’s uber-cute tags & when it arrives, use their website to register your pet and upload a few adorable mug shots. If your little buddy ever wanders off, just run – sobbing – to Blanket’s website & report your pet M.I.A. Blanket will instantly broadcast emails on your behalf to your local SPCA, animal hospitals, shelters, and other blanketID members in your area. Said email will link to your online information enabling 24/7 access to a full description + photos to help identify your lost pet. If a kindly stranger stumbles upon your wayward buddy, he or she can use the unique number on the tag to access all they need to reach you. Best of all – For every blanketID tag registered and every membership purchased, a portion of proceeds go towards the Blanket Fund for Animals to improve the lives of pets not as lucky as yours.
February is Responsible Pet Ownership Month and safety is always in style!
For a 100% disappointment-free Valentine’s Weekend, spend it with someone who loves you unconditionally – your dog! Why not make it a date tomorrow at the San Francisco SPCA? Drop in for an informative Q&A sesh with Dr. Jeannine Berger, the SF SPCA‘s resident behaviorist from 3-4 p.m., and then stay on for the kids activities, a puppy kissing booth, and chocolate treats (for the humans only!) until 7 p.m. If you’ve yet to meet your four-legged match, Jackson Galaxy of Animal Planet will be on hand to help potential adopters find the dog of their dreams. (Plus, there’ll be reduced adoption fees all weekend! Adult animals are $10 – $12.)
