While last week’s post encouraged shoppers to keep it lazily and lovingly local, I do have a small reason to shop online this holiday season. This reason has been hanging around during the past 8 years and hopefully will outlive me (umm…on the other hand – nah, he won’t). He is stubborn, yet ridiculously cute, very cuddly and quite protective of his MAMA!
His name is Slonik – he is a Yorkshire Terrier. Born in South Korea, rescued from a Homeplus (a grocery store), raised multilingual and he is the most traveled dog I know. He is my baby boy and I like to spoil him with treats and especially with outfits (I dare say he owns a few more than my husband).
It’s pets, like Slonik and less fortunate animals, that are always so near and dear to my heart, that I hope you too are inspired to help during this holiday season and whenever you can. Below is a list of various ways how you can get something adorable for yourself, your fluffy or furry friend or to help other animals in need.
This post is in no way affiliated with The Animal Rescue site, but I believe they do so much goodness, that if animals hold a special place in your heart, you won’t just stop by to window shop.
Help fly pets to freedom (clickable link)
Starting with just a $5 donation, you can help fly 1 animal 125 miles from Arizona to Delaware, where they will be saved from the pound and taken to a shelter, ready to be adopted. Delaware – being my home state, this gift is a no-brainer!
Socks, slippers, shower curtains and mugs are just a few things you’ll go GAGA for at this part of the store.
Feline good in a holiday pajama set, a cozy blanket, a kitchen apron or another pair of socks!
