Oh Dog! DeDe here! Each Sunday we offer beauty tips to look and feel your best. This week I’m going to share with you a way you can feel good on the inside while helping puppies! How cool is that!
Today is the third year the ASPCA is promoting No Pet Store Puppies Day! When you support businesses that sell puppies, you are, in effect, supporting puppy mills. The ASPCA and I would like each of you to pledge to not shop at pet stores that sell puppies.
Here’s the official ASPCA spokesperson Molly who can tell you more about it (Spoiler: Molly is simply adorable!)
Want to see where your USDA licensed puppymill puppy came from? You can track USDA licensed breeders and where stores buy their puppies here.
Surprised? Then take the pledge to not shop at stores that sell puppies!
Now, on to the giveaway! The ASPCA has provided a prize pack that includes a “I Love My Shelter Dog” jumbo tote, an ASPCA orange wristband, a keychain flashlight, an ASPCA logo magnet, Rachel Ray Naturally Delish dog treats, Walkers Shortbread Scottish Dog Cookies (for humans), and popchips!! Ther’s something for everyone in there!
To win, simply go take the pledge to not shop at stores that sell puppies, then comment below that you did so. Sorry, but the contest is only open to residents of the US. Entries accepted through midnight Monday, July 22nd. (Central Standard time).
Thanks for entering, and thanks for helping puppies!
And please vote today and every day for your favorite finalists in the Petties Awards from Dogtime. I’m voting for Animal Shelter Volunteer for Best Cause Blog and The Creative Cat for Best Cat Blog.
