Beginning Wednesday, December 17, clothing and accessories retailer Forever 21 is offering a collection of animal-themed apparel. In stores and online. $1 from the sale of each item will benefit the ASPCA’s life-saving work for animals nationwide.
The collection, featuring short and long-sleeved graphic tees and a hooded sweatshirt, will be available through November 5, 2015 while supplies last.
Earlier this year, Commonwealth Toy & Novelty launched a line of ASPCA-branded plush toys that offer children the chance to care for their very own “rescue pet.” The toys, which are available in various cat and dog designs, aim to teach children about the importance of pet adoption and caring for animals at a young age.
This holiday season, homeless pets across the nation are receiving much-needed holiday meals thanks to to Freekibble.com and Ellen DeGeneres’ natural pet food company, Halo, Purely for Pets. DeGeneres, who co-owns Halo, Purely for Pets, has teamed up with 17-year-old Freekibble.com founder Mimi Ausland to launch the third annual Holiday Kibble Drop.
During the Holiday Kibble Drop, 500,000 meals of all-natural Halo Spot’s Stew will be delivered to pets at 65 shelters across the country.
Founded by Ausland when she was just 11, Freekibble.com has donated more than 11 million meals to shelters and rescues since 2008. Each day, its website features a new trivia question. Every time visitors answer a question, right or wrong, they earn 10 pieces of kibble for homeless pets.
Helping homeless pets find their forever homes is a cause close to DeGeneres’ heart, too.
“Pet adoption is something I’m extremely passionate about,” DeGeneres says. “I believe that by working together, we can find good homes for the millions of homeless and abandoned pets out there.”
Shopping at Target this holiday season? You’re in luck! For only $1, you can purchase an ASPCA-branded pet toy. From festive ropes to plush stockings, these treats are sure to add some merriness to your pet’s holiday. And with 2-3% of each purchase going back to the ASPCA, you’ll feel pretty jolly, too.
