For many of us the weather is getting warmer and our thoughts are turning to romping in the park, spending time at the beach and just putting our paws up and relaxing!

Now, doggies can do it in style because  Tommy Bahama® (the Seattle-based manufacturer of men and women’s sportswear, active-wear, denim, swimwear etc.) has just kicked off a new line….FOR PETS!! 

It is Tommy Bahama® Pets – a new collection of apparel and toys now available exclusively at PetSmart® through August!!!

Is this exciting or what?

 

Whether pets are headed to a relaxing travel destination this summer or to the backyard for some fun in the sun, the collection captures the island and coastal spirit and features Tommy Bahama’s well-known hibiscus flowers, palm trees and camp shirts.

And since every pet deserves the paradise of a happy home, five percent of the purchase price for each limited-edition item will be donated to PetSmart Charities® in the United States and Canada to help save homeless pets.

Here are a few of our faves from the new line!

LARGEST OFF-SITE PET ADOPTION EVENT IN THE COUNTRY! May 19th And 20th Meet Your Best Friend At The Zoo!

In 1993, the Michigan Humane Society (MHS) and the Detroit Zoological Society partnered to create a unique adoption event called “Meet Your Best Friend at the Zoo.” Now, 20 years later, nearly 20,000 animals have been adopted during Meet Your Best Friend at the Zoo, which is today the largest off-site adoption event in the country. MHS and the Detroit Zoo will continue that tradition on Saturday and Sunday, May 19 and 20, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Detroit Zoo in Royal Oak, Michigan. Meet Your Best Friend at the Zoo is presented by Purina ONE.

If you’re looking for a furry best friend, Meet Your Best Friend at the Zoo is the place to be!”

Hundreds of dogs, cats, puppies and kittens from MHS and more than 20 animal welfare groups will be available for immediate adoption. In addition, 10 breed-specific rescue groups will be on-hand providing information to potential adopters about the breeds they represent – from Cocker Spaniels to Shih Tzus. (These groups will not have same-day adoptions.)

There is no charge for admission or parking for the event, which will be held under large tents in the front parking lot. The Detroit Zoo is at 8450 W. 10 Mile Road in Royal Oak.

ASPCA & Pets Alive to Help 88 Dogs Start a New Life this Winter-Guest Blog

Hi Everyone!!  We were sent an email from a nice lady asking us if we would help to spread the word about the wonderful work that the ASPCA and Pets Alive are doing to help these doggies and we said sure!! This is super important information and we are happy to share it! Barks and licks and love, Dakota and “Mom”

ASPCA transports dogs from Pope County, Ark. to Pets Alive Sanctuaries in
New York’s Westchester & Orange Counties as rescue facility closes

The ASPCA® (The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals®) is providing medical care and
transportation for dogs from JP Ranch and Rescue in Atkins, Ark. to Pets Alive Animal Sanctuary in Middletown, N.Y. and Pets Alive
Westchester in Elmsford, N.Y. in two upcoming transport operations. The transports to New York from Arkansas offer the dogs a
second chance, as a founder of the rescue group currently caring for them is suffering from a terminal illness and must close the facility.

Many of the dogs—mostly medium to large mixed-breed dogs, with a handful of small breeds—will even have a chance to find homes
in time for the holidays as the receiving Pets Alive shelters place them up for adoption. The transport operation for the first 53 dogs—
which began on December 19th  in Arkansas—is scheduled to arrive at the first stop in Westchester County, N.Y. sometime mid-morning , Tuesday, December 20. The operation will then continue to Orange County, N.Y. Another transport operation for the
remaining 35 dogs will take place in the coming weeks. To learn more about the dogs, or to inquire about adoption please visit
www.petsalive.org.
“The ASPCA Relocation Initiative works collaboratively to assist animals at risk, moving them to where they have the greatest
opportunity to find a home,” said Sandy Monterose, senior director of community outreach for the ASPCA. “We appreciate Pets Alive
and Pets Alive West for providing a second chance for these 88 dogs.”
“We’re very grateful to the ASPCA for working so efficiently and quickly to help save the lives of these dogs,” said Kerry Clair executive
director of Pets Alive. “We also appreciate of the local on-the-ground support in Arkansas. This has been a very complicated rescue,
yet thanks to all the dedicated and passionate people involved it has been a smooth transition and transfer of animals. We can’t wait to
welcome these dogs into our facility and get them quickly into homes.”
In addition to the ASPCA Animal Relocation Team, which is funding veterinary care (including exams, vaccinations and treatments) and the transport of the animals, the transport operation was made possible thanks to the collaboration of the following groups:
Southwind Animal Hospital in Russellville, Ark. – Owners Justin Key and Dr. Corry Key provided all veterinary care, testing,vaccinations, and spay/neuter surgeries for all dogs being transported to N.Y.;
Arkansas Animal Rescue Foundation (AARF) in Dover, Ark. – AARF funded all spay/neuter surgeries for all dogs being
transported to N.Y.;
PetSmart Charities, Inc. – PCI provided all supplies – including crates, bowls, food and leashes – to temporarily shelter the
animals at Southwind Animal Hospital during the vetting and surgery process;
Sumter DART in Sumter, Fla. – Sumter DART is transporting the animals from Ark. to N.Y. in custom built vehicles; and
Pets Alive Sanctuary and Pets Alive Westchester in New York’s Hudson Valley– for accepting 88 dogs into their facilities in Westchester and Middletown.
