I’m getting a late start with Christmas decorations but luckily I have Daisy to help me out. She’s a great helper, and you can see from her smile that she is very happy about getting started!
And speaking of helping, the holiday season is the perfect time of year to spread the word about ways YOU can help animals. Our pals over at ASPCA have put together some tips and infographic for animals lovers with 4 Ways to Help Animals this Holiday Season:
1. Adopt, Don’t Shop
Make adoption your first option this holiday season! Avoid buying anything from pet stores that sell puppies because most of them come from puppy mills. Search for local adoptable animals by visiting www.ASPCA.org/adopt
2. Help Local Shelters
Help your local shelter by volunteering your time or finding out what supplies they need. You can also win a grant for your local shelter by entering our “Home for the Holidays” contest with Dogist and Subaru at www.ASPCA.org/holiday
3. Have a More Humane Holiday Meal
If you eat meat, eggs, or dairy, look for certifications that require better treatment for animals on farms, specifically Certified Humane, Animal Welfare Approved, and GAP (Levels 2 and above). Visit www.ASPCA.org/labels to view a label guide and get useful tips and info on how to have a more humane holiday
4. Host a Holiday Sweet Swap
Consider hosting a holiday bake sale at your office or with friends and family and donate the proceeds to help animals in need. Find out how to start your fundraiser at www.ASPCA.org/SweetSwap

If you’re like us, you are a frequent shopper at PetSmart. We love browsing every department and discovering something new on each visit. Next time you’re at your local PetSmart, be sure to stop by the pet food aisles and check out Purina Pro Plan® SAVOR® Shredded Blend with formulas featuring a combination of crunchy kibble and tender meaty shreds for a taste and texture your dog or cat will love.
When you read the label, one of the important things you will notice is that the #1 ingredient in all Purina Pro Plan Shredded Blend adult dry food formulas is real meat. Always real chicken or salmon for cats, and real chicken, beef, lamb, or salmon for dogs.
In addition to Shredded Blend dry food for dogs and cats, the Purina Pro Plan Savor line also includes wet food, treats and more to satisfy your dog or cat’s taste preferences.
We think dog lovers will be especially interested in Savor Additions meal enhancements. Flavorful puree made with real, human-grade ingredients and packaged in a mess-free, easy to use resealable pouch. Your pooch bored with breakfast? Spice up their regular kibble by topping it with Oatmeal and Apple!
For cats, there are 20+ different protein-rich wet entrees with accents of pasta, rice, cheese and vegetables. The Turkey & Giblets looks purrrfect for your cat’s special Thanksgiving meal!
Find all this and more at your local PetSmart store. You can also shop for Pro Plan at PetSmart.com.
