Your New Best Friend With Jungle Cat Tees

“Never, never be afraid to do what’s right, especially if the well-being of a person or animal is at stake. Society’s punishments are small compared to the wounds we inflict on our souls when we look away.”

Martin Luther King Jr.

Did you know about 7.6 MILLION pets enter shelters every year?

Out of that number over 2.7 MILLION of them are euthanised.

This is my shelter pup. He was five weeks old when we rescued him. It was definitely love at first site! (Or first lick… this dog loves giving kisses!)

There have been some rough times, some of which were kinda cute:

Others were gross- not showing this kitchen covered in poop…. that was a mess.

Others were expensive- you know what happens when your dog eats cheese wax? Foreign object removals are not cheap.

The moments like this though where he just makes my heart so full of love and happiness make it all worth it! (Did I mention he loves kisses? I mean look at that ridiculous tongue!)

Bran is such a special part of my life, that I can’t imagine how different it would be had my Sweet Baboo and I not gone to the shelter that day!

When Jungle Cat Tees reached out to me about collaborating and shared that part of their profits go to supporting shelters I couldn’t say no! There are so many dogs and cats- not to mention birds, guinea pigs and reptiles- out there that are just waiting for you to say yes and become their forever family.

You might say “I can’t even keep a plant alive…” I guarantee you can keep a pet alive and better yet, they will definitely improve your quality of life. I think every shelter pet should come with a label that promises these three things:

1: You will laugh more.

2: You will be more active.

3: Your new friend will always be there for you.

Even if you’re in a situation where you can’t have a pet i.e. apartment rules there are so many ways you can help and share love with these animals!

  • Save old towels and sheets to donate to your local shelter.
  • Volunteer at your local shelter!
  • Shop places that give back like Jungle Cat Tees.
  • Spread the word! If you know anyone looking for a pet, make sure they know about the shelter option!

Have you adopted a shelter dog or pet in the past? I’d love to hear about your experience! Happy Wednesday babes.

    There are two topics that can easily bring me to tears at first sight or mention and that’s animals and the homeless. I cannot imagine my life without my boy Judah (cat). He’s more than a pet, he’s like a baby. Pets give you way more than what you give them. They give unconditional love, friendship, and so much more. This is such a great cause. Animals who’ve been rescued definitely understand what you’ve done for them. My mom has two cats, one from a breeder and the other from a shelter. She had the one from the breeder for about 7 years before adopting little miss Naomi, who’s now 1 and she is more loyal and loving to my mom than Hadassah (we’re Jewish, so the cats get Jewish names, haha). We know it’s because she knows what my mom did for her. Anyway, this is such a great cause and I think it’s awesome that you’ve collaborated with them. Thanks for sharing, beauty, and I hope you’re having a very Happy Friday!

      You speak like someone who really knows what it’s like to have a pet who has improved your life. Bran is definitely not just a dog to me, he’s absolutely my baby. I love all the names of your kitties! I think Hadassah is one of those elegant and beautiful names that have been lost to history. I hope you’re having a great weekend gorgeous!!! I can’t wait to see what content you have coming up this week. Hugs, Kait
