The Loving Bowl for brachycephalic dogs

My Pup and I LOVE The Loving Bowl!

The Loving Bowl for brachycephalic dogs

I’ve owned many breeds of dogs but nothing can compare to my love for pugs! I adore my pug, Patty. She makes a wonderful companion and four-legged friend. However, as many pug owners know, this breed is prone to many genetic health issues. It’s difficult to watch Patty having trouble breathing and eating.

I’m thrilled to have found a solution for her challenge during daily mealtimes. The Loving Bowl is a new product out on the market specifically designed for flat-faced pets. This product works WONDERS thanks to the slope that is designed within the bowl. I was shocked to see how quickly Patty learned to slide her food up the ridge in order to eat comfortably.

It was heartbreaking to witness Patty struggling to eat her food in a standard bowl. In the past, I would watch her slide the bowl around the room in attempt to grab the food, which would create a big mess for the both of us. Not only would her meal be all over the floor and walls, but it would be stuck in her wrinkles as well!

The Loving Bowl has been fantastic because Patty can happily eat in one spot and there’s no mess for me to deal with. Once I realized how beneficial The Loving Bowl is, I went ahead and purchased another one to use as a water bowl. I personally love the bright and fun colors these bowls come in as well. Overall, The Loving Bowl is such a simple idea and concept that truly makes a world of difference for both Patty and I. I highly recommend this product to all flat-faced parents and their canines!

Black lab with Foobler, the dog treat ball

The Foobler Ball is a Brilliant Dog Toy for All!

Black lab with Foobler, the dog treat ball

It breaks my heart to leave my Black Lab Harley for more than a few hours at a time. Labs are high-energy dogs and need attention, stimulation and exercise daily. Harley has shown signs of separation anxiety, which makes it that much harder to leave her for the day.  My family goes above and beyond to coordinate our schedules so that she is not alone for too long; however, there are the inevitable occasions when Harley is by herself for the day.

I’ve purchased numerous interactive dog toys for Harley but nothing compares to The Foobler! It’s truly the PERFECT toy for her and I believe there’s nothing like it on the market. What makes this dog treat ball so unique is that it’s a self-reloading puzzle. I fill it up with 2 cups of kibble in the morning, set it to release the treats at a certain time (usually I choose every hour), then a metal bell rings to let Harley know its time to play and eat. It keeps her occupied and stimulated throughout the day which is exactly what she needs when she is home alone!

At first I was unsure Harley would associate the ringing of the bell with playtime, but I should have never doubted her intelligence. Every treat is missing when I arrive home! I now notice that after a long day out, Harley’s overall demeanor has changed for the better since purchasing The Foobler. I truly believe the treat rewards throughout the day has helped distract her from her separation anxiety…It’s amazing!

Another great feature of this toy is it’s so easy to fill and clean. I’ve tried many other treat toys in the past, and most of them are a hassle to fill and impossible to clean the inside of. This ball comes apart so that it can be cleaned with soap and water, or can even be put in the dishwasher! The Foobler has made Harley a happier dog and has given my family and I peace of mind. It’s a brilliant toy that all dogs should enjoy!

Chimp Haven | Dont-be-Cruel.org

Join LoveAnimals.org’s Campaign to Help Retired Medical Research Chimps

Chimp Haven | Dont-be-Cruel.org

Last year, two government decisions drastically changed the world for chimpanzees used in research and the National Institutes of Health (NIH) announced that they would permanently retire 310 – the vast majority – of their chimps into the care of Chimp Haven.

Chimp Haven, The National Chimpanzee Sanctuary, is currently home to 210 residents and is located in Keithville, Louisiana, about 22 miles outside of Shreveport. It was founded in 1995 by an alliance of professionals from research, animal welfare, and the pharmaceutical industry who saw the need for humane, cost-effective social housing for unwanted chimpanzees. Since 2005, 299 chimpanzees have called Chimp Haven home. Chimp Haven’s mission is to provide humane, lifetime care for chimpanzees no longer used in biomedical research, as pets or as entertainers.

Every resident of Chimp Haven has a beautiful, unique personality. Jimoh, beloved by both chimpanzees and sanctuary caregivers, recently passed away. He was born in the wild and taken from his natural environment at a young age, after which he spent most of his life in biomedical research.  Let me repeat that: he was born in the wild.

Many chimps still carry the diseases that they were exposed to as research subjects. Crystal, a beautiful female with dark black hair and white whiskers, was infected with HIV, hepatitis B and hepatitis C. Chimp Haven is the only sanctuary in the U.S. equipped to care for a large number of chimpanzees infected with HIV and hepatitis. There, expert staff ensures that Crystal receives her medications on time, delivered in her favorite food, peanut butter banana sandwiches.

The recent and wonderful announcement by the NIH places Chimp Haven, in a difficult position. To accept the new retirees, the sanctuary must more than double in size and secure the additional resources it needs for the chimps’ lifetime care. While 110 of the NIH chimps have already arrived at the Sanctuary, the fate of the other chimps is still up in the air. That is why LoveAnimals.org and Alison Eastwood decided to run a crowdfunding campaign on nonprofit crowdfunding site LoveAnimals.org to raise $50,000 to help pay for the care of the chimps already at Chimp Haven.

LoveAnimals.org is an exciting new nonprofit crowdfunding platform dedicated to helping animals and wildlife. We use innovative technology to dramatically increase donations to animal nonprofit groups who currently receive only 2% of all giving.  At LoveAnimals.org: Nonprofits can easily showcase their projects most in need of funding; Animal Lovers can run crowdfunding campaigns to support their favorite causes or raise money for veterinary care of pets; and Donors can have a fun and interactive experience, can take a few minutes, give a few dollars and have a big impact for animals.  LoveAnimals.org is free to use. It takes no percentage of donations raised through the platform, which means more money directly helps animals.

“We owe them, these self-aware, social animals sacrificed so much for the benefit of humans. They deserve the best possible care during retirement, both physically and emotionally. You can make a difference right now by donating to my project – even $5.00 makes a difference. 100% of your donation will go towards giving research chimps the life in retirement that we owe them.” Alison Eastwood.

Please, visit our campaign page to make a donation!

Sincerely,
Sarah Timms
CEO and Founder of LoveAnimals.org
“It’s our mission to increase giving to the animal welfare and wildlife conservation sector using crowdfunding technology.”

Petsdatng.com

PetsDating.com is Paw-fect for my Pooch and I!

 

Petsdatng.com

I heard about PetsDating.com from a friend and she highly recommended I check out this website for myself and my Black Lab, Harley. I’m fairly new to my town and it’s been a challenge meeting pet parents who adore their pets like I do. It’s important for me to keep Harley social, active as well as allow her to experience new places.

At first, I was skeptical about this website called “Pets Dating.” But after exploring the website, I realized that it’s not necessarily a dating site for pets, but in fact; an online community with an overall goal to keep our pets happy and healthy. This sounded right up our alley! The website was terrific. I registered for free and I was very pleased with how easy the site was to navigate.

I found that this site is great for connecting with others in the area. PetsDating.com really brings the community together and allows pet owners to build friendships with other pet lovers. Even better, if you decide to set up play dates like I did with Harley, your canine is benefiting greatly too! It’s a win-win!

What I love most about PetsDating.com is the extra support a pet parent can potentially receive from their neighborhood if their furry friend becomes lost. Having the ability to reach out to others in the community who are familiar with your pet can be extremely helpful in these unfortunate, stressful times.

Overall, Harley and I have established many friendships thanks to PetsDating.com. Harley now has weekly play dates because of her new doggie friends and I’m feeling more connected to my new town. Every pet parent MUST register to PetsDating.com – It’s Paw-fect all around!

 

Twigo tags

Keep Your Pet Safe, Stylish & Silent With A Twigo Tag!

Twigo tags

I am an avid animal lover, and pet safety and proper identification is extremely important to me. My dog Buster is my pride and joy. Unfortunately, Buster’s ID tags drive me nuts! He is often active in the middle of the night and since I am a light sleeper, the jingling sound of his tags disturbs me. To avoid the annoying sound of his tags, I decided to take Buster’s collar off at night.

One morning, I let Buster in the yard to do his business but I had forgotten to put his collar back on. It just so happened that on this one particular day, a piece of the fence blew over and Buster had escaped. Luckily, the neighbor was able to catch him to bring him back to me; however this situation was a real wake up call! I realized I needed to find a solution to this ID tag dilemma. 

That’s when I discovered Twigo! After some research online, I found the Twigo website and the first thought that came to my mind was BRILLIANCE! A silent ID tag that can be personalized instantly at a very affordable price; this sounded like a dream come true! There are many cute styles and colored tags to choose from. I ordered Buster’s tag and within a few days it arrived. 

Write, boil, wear! Twigo provides written instructions (the video on their website is helpful too), and the overall process is extremely easy and fun. Buster looks adorable in his Twigo Tag! It’s truly a unique tag and many of our pet parent friends have purchased their own after admiring Busters. Best of all, I can sleep peacefully now with this silent tag and knowing Buster is safe at all times. You can’t go wrong with a Twigo Tag. I highly recommend this product to all pet parents and their furry friends! 

Puppy Rescue Motorcycle Ride

Don’t Be Cruel Donates to the Puppy Rescue Mission

Puppy Rescue Motorcycle Ride

Thanks to you, Don’t Be Cruel was able to attend the Puppy Rescue Motorcycle Ride at Tramontin Harley Davidson in Hope, NJ.  The ride was to benefit the Puppy Rescue Mission whose mission is to fundraise and assist in pet rescue, foster and re-homing when needed, in particular pets of soldiers, especially those deployed in war zones. They assists with requests, logistics, administration and fund-raising for the adopted stray dogs of war rescued by and bonded with soldiers. This may include vet care, supplies, transport and related issues. They work with or through other organizations that help our soldiers bring their companion animals home from war.

Don’t Be Cruel donated almost $400.00 worth of collars and leases, click n stays, poop bags and pods. We couldn’t have done it without all of you – our supporters and loyal customers!
