Our first shelter donation in 2013. These supplies are for the Northeast Ohio SPCA.

Me visiting a cute cat at the Northeast Ohio SPCA. When generous people like you donate supplies, shelters are able to make their animals' stay as comfortable as possible while they wait to be adopted. Look at the nice bed this cat is resting on.

We saw this poor senior dog at the kennel too, and were really worried she wouldn't have a chance to get rescued. My mom posted a picture of her online, and on her LAST day (July9) she was rescued by a nice lady! She will be in her new home in portsmouth, Ohio this Saturday. I'm so happy! I wish all the dogs here could be this lucky too.


My family found out about a great grooming tool called the FURminator when we took Rio to her vet appointment a few weeks ago. We got one for our dogs and they love to be brushed with it. It really works!
(Aug.1, 2013)


I wrote to United Pet Group to see if they could send some FURminator products to Blankets Fur Beasties so we could take them to the shelters. They were so nice to send all of these!

Thank you to Holly Justice from for sending me these great bowls. I wrote and asked her if she had any heavy bowls so that dogs would have a hard time flipping them over and making a mess in their shelter cages. I know just the shelter I'm taking these to. THANKS HOLLY!
