Giveaway: Gift Pack from the ASPCA!

The ASPCA recently contacted me to share some important and fun information with fellow ‘dog friends!’  Every year, the ASPCA encourages shoppers not to buy anything at stores that sell puppies.  Additionally, please check out the video, What Not to Buy, the ASPCA’s holiday video aimed at educating consumers about the connection between pet store puppies and puppy mills.

The holidays present a time when shoppers are buying gifts for pet lovers and pets alike, and studies show that over a third of Americans purchase holiday gifts for their pet(s).  Doug and I are in this category — we treat our beautiful Victory as a family member and we are excited about our first Christmas with our little Victory!  We have already begun our Christmas shopping for Victory!  Below, the ASPCA has shared some DIY gift ideas; pet gifts from its online store; and gifts for pet lovers!  This is a great way to help support the mission of the ASPCA!

Further, the ASPCA is giving away a Gift Pack shown below to one lucky winner — please read below as to how you can win this Gift Pack, a $100.00 value!  Please share with your family and friends!


DIY Ideas:  Below are some fun gift ideas for DIY enthusiasts or just those trying to cut back on costs.  As such, ASPCA behavior experts have put together the following suggestions, some of which are pictured below:

  • DIY dog gift: To make a tasty chew toy, soak a rope toy in chicken broth and then freeze. Once frozen, give the toy to your dog for hours of savory chewing.
  • DIY cat gift: Rip off a piece of aluminum foil, put cat food or cat nip in it, and crumble it up into a ball. This serves a fun batting toy for hours of kitty entertainment.



Gifts: Also as shown below, if you are shopping and are in need of gifts for your furry family member(s), below are some links to other cute gift ideas for pets, available at the ASPCA Online Store:

This gift pack will make a very nice gift for a lucky furry family member!  Please find the rules of the contest below to enter to win this above gift pack!

  7. Hello! We had to deal with a puppy store in our mall a few years back. We successfully booted them out but they just relocated closer to Chicago where they can fool more people into thinking they are a honest, reputable “adoption agency”.

  16. A very nice gift pack! I once bought a beautiful kitty from a pet store. The man was horrible! But I’m so glad I got kitty out of that situation. She had some problems but eventually all was well. Eventually he had to leave town. Merry Christmas to all!
