Who Rescued Who?
About a year ago, I was walking into Ralphs and someone stopped me. I’ll admit, usually when people set up shop in front of the grocery store with clipboards and they’re not selling cookies, I say a quick “no, thank you” and keep walking. No eye contact, no chance for them to get me.
This time was different. I saw their orange table banner and stopped immediately. I even let the young guy with the clipboard give me his spiel. After a 30 minute conversation, my credit card information, and a new welcome packet, I was a proud donor to the ASPCA, American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.
My furbaby, Pretzel, is a rescue (shout out to Carson Animal Shelter and Love Leo Rescue) and she is my world. I have made it part of my mission to help as many furbabies as possible in any way I can.
Since Pretz is my one and only furbaby at home, she gets treated like the princess she is. I dress her up all of the time, and frankly, she’s just not that into it. I have tried to get her cute bandanas instead, but they’re either way too big for her small neck or the patterns are really boring. After much searching, I came across complete perfection, Canine Compassion Bandanas.
Not only do these Bandanas have the cutest patterns on earth (hello, holidays!), but they also come in three different sizes to fit perfectly around your pup’s neck. Pretz is on the more petite side, so a small fits great.
I love that Canine Compassion Bandanas are handmade in the US. The brand also gives your order a personal touch. When my order arrived, I squealed. The sticker on the envelope said, “Who’s a good dog? Pretzel” -- it’s the little things!
I wanted to support Canine Compassion Bandanas because they don’t just make pups look cute, they donate $1 per bandana sold to the ASPCA. The bandanas are only $4-$5, so that’s about a fourth going toward animals in need. The best part is, the brand makes their donation records available every month just in case someone wants to see exactly how much is going toward the ASPCA. Does it get any better than that?
I have a very soft place in my heart for animals, especially dogs. I grew up terrified of even the tiniest chihuahua, and somehow got over the fear (thankfully!). Now, to make up for all of those sad years, it’s my mission to cuddle as many pups as possible and helping animals in need is a part of that mission. May 20th is National Rescue Dog Day, so rescue a dog or get your rescue something that keeps giving.
Thank you, Canine Compassion Bandanas for everything you do for animals in need. It doesn’t go unnoticed.
