Goalie is Pet of the Week!

Goalie, JUne 29 Pet of the Week

Amidst the dogs, cats and, increasingly, rabbits waiting at shelters to be adopted, pocket pets often get overlooked. Pocket pets, which include hamsters, gerbils, mice, rats and guinea pigs like Goalie here wind up at shelters for the same reason that other pets do—owner surrender, abandonment, cruelty and unwanted litters. Goalie is a sleek piggle outfitted in his black-and-white uniform, waiting at our shelter with several other pocket pets. Can you level the playing field for him? If so, meet Goalie and his teammates at the Companion Animal Village at 7700 East Spring St., (562) 570-PETS. Ask for ID#A591014.

Peluches Dog Toy may make your Pup feel less lonely when you are away!

Peluche_Hero_600x600

I recently heard about a wonderful toy that may make your Dog feel less lonely while you are at work or out for the day! I was happy to receive one to review. My Pup Bink wanted to play catch with it so we tried it with a friend’s slightly older dog and she loves it! She actually loves to sleep with it. Peluches is a fun dog toy that can be easily connected to your dog’s collar so they are together all day long! The square plush toy is cute, portable and fun to play with. Your puppy will enjoy the new friend and will never feel lonely while waiting for you to get back home.

Even better, with every purchase of a Peluches, one toy will be donated to a less fortunate dog in an animal shelter, so you will be spreading the fun and love to a dog in need!

Old Joe is Pet of the Week!

Old Joe, JUne 1 Pet of the Week
