If you count Sigmund the Foster Grey (more on him later), there are four pets in my house:
Dog, cat, two African Greys. And they need stuff. Food, treats, meds, toys, various supplies. I have no one source for all of my needs, so I shop around a lot.
I like to find a good deal and I like to support my causes. So when I adopted Gibbs and discovered the pet supply store run at Wright-Way Rescue, I bought a lot of stuff. Muttzie’s commits to having competitive prices (I was told they check against PetsMart and Petco) and the proceeds go to help the dogs and cats. However, it is sort of a pain to drive over there and the working hours are not at all convenient.
Then this morning, in my e-mail box, was a message from ShelterCare, the health insurance company for the shelter pets. It pointed me to the website for Petango. It is a pretty standard site for dog and cat supplies. They seem to have more of the boutique brands and even organic products. Ugh, and a Fung Shui drinking fountain. But also, Kong toy and Nylabone stuff.
But the beauty is this: 10% of each order goes to an animal shelter of your choice. They have a drop-down list for each state, but if your rescue of choice isn’t listed there is a fill-in-the-blank. And – free shipping over $35. That is better than PetsMart.
Gibbs is now stocked with Kong Stuffin’!
