Wood Green, The Animals’ Charity has teamed up with Furniture Village to launch an online catalogue with a twist. Shop for a bed, table or sofa and you’ll find a selection of rescue dogs and cats desperate for you to take them home too.
In a bid to bring rescue animals to people’s attention, Wood Green has made its feline and canine friends honorary models for a number of Furniture Village items.
Click here, spot a potential new pet and you’ll be taken directly to his or her dedicated adoption page within the Wood Green website.
The animals selected are all long-term residents in Wood Green’s centres, having been consistently overlooked in favour of other four-legged friends. Over the past month, visitors to the Furniture Village website have increased by 23 per cent, so the hope is that these consistently overlooked animals will find homes quickly.br> Add your comments on this article.
It’s ‘Bring Your Dog To Work Day’ on Friday 27 June, so Dogs Monthly has teamed up with PetSafe to offer two readers the chance to win a Wag ‘n’ Work prize bundle – worth over £100 – to keep their dog engaged, entertained and hydrated on the day.
The presence of pets at work has been shown to have a positive effect on reducing employee stress levels and PetSafe wants to make sure dogs feel as comfortable as their human counterparts in the work environment.
Each prize bundle contains:
● A Busy Buddy Barnacle to stimulate and reward your dog, promote positive play, and help redirect potentially destructive behaviours. The Barnacle randomly dispenses goodies during play, and is made up of a number of chambers that you can fill with different snacks.
● A Drinkwell 360 Stainless Steel Pet Fountain to help keep him hydrated. The fountain creates free-flowing streams of water that entices your dog to drink more, and has five separate water outlets that can be used for multiple pets.
● An Easy Walk Harness, designed to gently discourage dogs from pulling. Unlike some traditional harnesses, the chest strap rests low across the breastbone, reducing coughing and choking, and providing maximum comfort for your dog.
To enter, click here putting ‘Petsafe bundle’ in the ‘subject’ box. Entries close 20 June 2014. Two winners will be drawn at random and sent their goodies in time for ‘Bring Your Dog To Work Day’ the following week.br> Add your comments on this article.
