Still looking for a thoughtful Mother’s Day Gift?

 Better than a Knick Knack

Give your mom the gift of BlinkLove this Sunday and help forgotten puppy mill moms all across the country!

100% of the money raised by BlinkLove will be donated and a special portion will support Best Friends Animals Society’s Puppies Aren’t Products Campaign. 

“Right now, millions of adult dogs are suffering on the “production line” in America’s puppy mills. Their sole purpose is to breed and make money for their owners. They live in tiny, wire-bottomed cages, in squalid conditions, with little human contact and often no veterinary care. It is no life for man’s best friend.

Meanwhile, roughly 11,000 animals are euthanized in America’s shelters every day. There’s something wrong with this picture.

The goal of Best Friends’ Puppies Aren’t Products campaign is to create a world of No More Homeless Pets by fighting against puppy mills and irresponsible breeding. Our campaign team saves lives by holding peaceful demonstrations at pet stores that sell puppies from mills, educating consumers about the inhumane conditions in puppy mills, encouraging people to adopt rather than buy pets, and advocating for better legislation to combat puppy mills.” More info at   http://www.bestfriends.org/nomorehomelesspets/puppies_arent_products.cfm Google puppy mills for more information and pictures.

With your donation we can get closer to eliminating the horrible practice of unhealthy breeding and help save moms, dads, and puppies all over the nation.  Warm your mom’s heart by letting her know you have contributed in her honor a step in a positive direction.

*Creativity boost- Make your mom a card. Perhaps cut out a picutre of her and a beloved pet, or a picture of an animal you have found beautiful. On the inside tell her about the gift you gave BlinkLove in her honor, and the difference you think it will help make in the lives of animals everywhere. 

Every little bit counts! Happy Mother’s Day!
