I’ve got two happy dogs at my feet right now. Why so happy? Because after almost three years of blogging and doing product review, my pups have gotten a product just for them!
Givebones sent us two dog collars for my dogs, Bauer and Mr. Monk, but these aren’t just any collars — they’re dog essentials with a purpose! While participating in a Giving Trip with TOMS, Tricia Andrews’ husband noticed an overwhelming number of homeless dogs on the streets in Central America. But the problem isn’t unique to other countries; about 2.7 million animals are euthanized each year! Overcrowding and and poorly-funded animal shelters are big contributors to this problem.
Tricia Andrews was inspired by the One for One model of TOMS shoes, and founded Givebones with the mission to raise awareness and financial support to reduce the number of homeless dogs that are euthanized each year. With each Givebones collar purchased, 10% of sales is donated to shelters and rescue groups. Additionally, an awareness bracelet is given to each collar purchaser! The Givebones logo on the collars and the bracelets are a conversation starter to show your support and help give dogs a voice.
Here’s my cute dogs in their Givebones collars!
Givebones collars are available in many collars and in sizes extra small, small, medium, and large for the retail price of $14.99. For more details, visit www.givebones.com, Like them on Facebook, and follow them on Twitter!
