Think Pink for Pets this October


Screen shot 2010-10-20 at 3.26.29 PM October is National Breast Cancer Awareness month and it's not uncommon this time of year to see hoardes of energetic men and women, bedecked in pink, walking and training for their local Race for the Cure.  Now it's possible for our pets to bark, wag and whine for the cure, with fun fashion accessories by the Doggie Couture Shop. In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month, the Doggie Couture Shop is giving out a portion of sales to the Susan G. Komen foundation, which supports breast cancer research.

For the month of October, any purchase made through Doggie Couture Shop will help in breast cancer research. Whether you pick up Halloween dog costumes or accessories, Doggie Couture Shop will contribute a percentage of sales to Breast Cancer Research. Check out their whole collection at

Squeak for The Cure

4df52f0b2198df259dfe54cac1146591 Multipet International is also thinking pink with their darling Loofa brand dog toys, as they've chosen to donate a percentage of proceeds of sales of the Pink Breast Cancer Awareness Loofa Dog Toy to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

Shaped like a retriever log…narrow and long, the Pink Ribbon Loofa squeaky dog toy is a plush soft dog toy with a pink ribbon embroidered on its chest as a reminder of the effort to conquer this disease. Find the Loofa Breast Cancer Squeaky at

Bark for A Cure Bandanas

Our friends over at I See Spot have also gotten with the program and have released their darling collection of doggie scarves with a cause!  Profits from the sale of their super comfortable cotton/lycra scarf help fund breast cancer research and according to their website, more than $8,000 has been donated so far - props to them! Find their Bark for a Cure 600419-PNK sd_1 Bandanas starting at $10 at Pet Products

You can also shop the official e-store of Susan G. Komen for the Cure year-round, where 25 percent of your purchase price goes to the fight against breast cancer. Their selection of pup products includes a Race for the Cure leash and collar set.

My personal mission is to bring you a daily dose of "creature culture" with the goal to inspire, connect, educate and entertain.
