Stella's Saturday PSA

One of the ways to support your favorite rescue group, is to donate leashes, collars and harnesses.
Yesterday, while the parent was picking up food and goodies for us at Petco, she noticed their clearance bin was FULL of leashes and collars.  She found pugtastic deals on some great stuff.

Check out these sooo cute leashes.

Can you believe they're only $2.00!  And not to mention they're totally made out of recycled plastic. That should make Stubby happy...

This collar was only $3.00. And most importantly it's the break-a-way type. Safety first my friends! It's also made out of recycled plastic.

The parent was most excited to find this step-in harness. At only $5.00 she wishes there were more to buy. This is going to make one Pug or Frenchie chicka look fabulous while out strutting her stuff.

I'm happy to report, the parent didn't forget about us.

Bacon flavored Nylabones. Mmmmm...Tasty!

Definitely Gunther approved.

 Betty can't decide if she wants to hide it, chew it or smoke it.

If your  parents are out and about and happen to see some great deals on things like beds, leashes, collars, harnesses, sweaters, etc. By all means remind them rescues need that stuff kind of stuff. 

Have a lovely weekend everyone!
Ms. Stella

A good point indeed! What deals your momma got! There will be some puggies and frenchies looking fine thanks to those finds! Love the picture of you with the bone (the one of Betty scares me a little, though). Has Flat Brutus gotten there yet? I can't wait for you to meet him!!

Stubby said...

Hi Stella! Love your PSA! Your parent is so smart to buy all those collars and leashes for the doggies in need. And how cool that the collars are made from recycled plastic? I'm sending Mom to Petco tomorrow to check out the clearance bin.

Those nylabones look delicious! I haven't had one in years and I forgot how good they were. I'm not sure what to make of Betty with her bone but she looks like she's enjoying it.

Stubby xoxo
