As a professional pet sitter and blogger, I'm fortunate to have the opportunity to try some amazing pet products. I make it a point to support brands that are natural and healthy, and it's even better if those companies give back to animal causes. There are quite a few awesome pet products that are good for your pets, the environment, AND are charitable. Check out a few of my favorites:
This fashionable ID tag is the only tag your pet will need for life, helping reduce environmental waste. You can update your pet's information online, and it provides comprehensive information to anyone who finds your pet. But you don't have to wait for your pet to be found. Your pet's information and photo can be emailed to your local area and all local BlanketID members if you discover your pet has gone missing. It works in the U.S. and Canada. If you move, simply update your information online.
Funds from your membership support their Blanket Fund for Animals or can be donated to an animal organization of your choice, helping to give sick, injured, abandoned and homeless animals a second chance.
BOGO Bowl pet food contains all natural ingredients with protein as the main ingredient, contains fruit and vegetables, and contains no byproducts, artificial colors, flavors, corn, or soy. It's quality, healthy food. Shipping is included in all orders, and they have a variety of formulas to choose from, including a grain-free option.
At BOGO Bowl, BOGO means “buy one, give one.” Each time you purchase a bag of food, they donate a bag to a pet in need. They have shelters and organizations that they donate to regularly, but if the organization you'd like to donate to isn't on the list, just list the organization on your order form, and BOGO Bowl will contact them and add them to the list.
Dura Doggie's Nebo and Beba dog toys are not only adorable, but they are made with durable eco-friendly materials in the U.S.A.
These vanilla-scented toys come in bright colors, each one designating a different charitable cause, to which the company will donate 20% of their profits from the sale of the toy: pink=breast cancer, blue=saving animals, green=saving the planet, and orange=fighting diabetes. Dura Doggie invites you to “Chews Your Cause.”
Dog for Dog
Dog for Dog food and treats are all natural, made in the USA, and contain nothing but wholesome, healthy ingredients. In addition to food and treats, they offer their signature DogsBar, a nutrition bar for dogs on-the-go and DogsButter, a healthier version of store-bought peanut butter that has no sugar, salt, soy or hydrogenated oil. They even offer grooming products and accessories!
When you buy a bag of Dog for Dog food or treats, Dog for Dog donates another equal bag to a dog in need. That rocks!
Natural Balance makes high-quality, natural pet foods for dogs and cats. They use safe, healthy, and sustainable ingredients.
Through their UPC Charity Rebate Program, Natural Balance donates money to animal rescue organizations. By collecting UPCs and receipts, 501(c)(3) rescue organizations can earn cash to support their cause. Find and animal rescue organization you care about and clip those UPCs to help.
ThunderShirt is a great product that provides natural relief for dogs with anxiety by “hugging” them, providing comforting pressure. No need for chemical-laden anti-anxiety meds when your pooch is wearing his ThunderShirt. We've personally conducted case studies, and the ThunderShirt is the real deal.
Through their ThunderWorks Donation Program, ThunderShirt has donated thousands of ThunderShirts directly to shelters and pet adoption foundations.
Knowing that I'm purchasing a quality, healthy, environmentally-friendly product for my pet and helping others in need is a win-win situation. Do you purchase any of these products for your pets?
