If you’re not very far along with your Christmas shopping, I hope that you have at least been thinking about the presents you are going to get for your friends and family. I also want to remind you not to forget your pet. And if you have pet owners on your list, I have some ideas for you.
One of the main ways I promote my company, Fetch! Pet Care, is by attending networking groups around the area I serve. RuthE Levy is one of the people I met early on and her newest venture is a must stop for animal lovers. The website is bowwowmews.com. She has a wide selection of animal products. If you like to dress up your dogs, she has some handmade dog scarfs available, even some for Thanksgiving. She has scarves available from most area colleges so you can dress up your dog to match your gameday outfits. Personalized products are available as well. Under the link pet tales, she has must-reads for every animal lover.
One other idea for pet lovers is a professional photo of your pet. Every animal owner has hundreds of cell phone pictures of their pet, but nothing will preserve the long term memory of your pet better than a professional photograph. Just because it’s professional doesn’t mean in a studio. But a professional photographer like Alana from ABJ photography can capture the proper light for the best possible picture of your loved one. Alana is one of our sitters and is very involved with the Atlanta Lab Rescue. She has some holiday specials that you can take advantage of and help that great organization by going to her Facebook page.
Another great way to spread holiday cheer to animals is to make a donation of cash or merchandise to a shelter or rescue organization in your area. Most of these facilities operate strictly on donations and welcome anything. You can also volunteer your time with them as well. That doesn’t cost as much but can provide you with that great feeling of doing something for these animals that are longing for love and attention.
