Most of you know by now that I love PetSmart®. I buy all of my pet supplies there, which includes treats, toys and of course food for my dogs and cats. It’s also well known that Wynston is a model for PetSmart, so you could say that I hold a bit of a bias. Although I frequently rant and rave about PetSmart, it isn’t just because they are a great store and my dog models for them. PetSmart is always working to make the lives of pet better, whether it’s your pet or another animal in need. For their 30th anniversary, PetSmart just announced their biggest philanthropic program ever. They hope to contribute more than 60 million meals with the Buy A Bag, Give A Meal™ campaign.
As someone who’s been in animal rescue for a decade, I know how important it is to spay and neuter pets. I guarantee you that we could cut the euthanasia rate waaaay down if more people just got their pets fixed. Not only does spaying and neutering save lives, but it’s significantly healthier for your pet. Fixing your pet will make things easier for you too! In honor of National Spay Day, let’s look further into what spaying is, and why it’s important.
I fell in love with Lucas last week when I saw him on Facebook. My heart just melted and his photos gave me that “I need to adopt him feeling.” Lucas is a very special boy. He’s a three year old Chihuahua who’s loving, playful and great with other dogs, cats and children! Sounds like quite a catch eh? He sure is. And there’s something that makes Lucas especially unique – he is blind. But don’t let his inability to see steer you away from giving this boy a much deserving home. He’s just like any other amazing dog!
Having pets in a wedding is becoming common and more mainstream. This is no surprise due to the fact that Millennials are having more pets than kids. Pets are deemed part of the family now in 75% of households. That’s a lot! I’m no exception – my animals are everything to me. So when I told everyone that my three dogs would be in my wedding, no one was shocked. In fact, we had to get married at a dog friendly wedding venue. It wasn’t an option – it was a must-have. Khloee and McKenzie Rae both wore custom gowns from CH Couture, and I took it one step further with other details of my wedding.
Arizona Animal Welfare League & SPCA (AAWL) is the largest and oldest no-kill shelter in Arizona. This year I am making it my mission to become more involved in their cause, as I’ve been an avid AAWL supporter for years. Now I want to take my support a step further, and to do that I am sponsoring an adoptable dog and cat each month! Without further adieu, meet our January AAWL adoptable cat of the month: Boggs! This bobtail beauty is sure to win your heart over!
