Designer Dogs

I love all the funky collars out there for dogs. The polka dots, the stripes, the bright colors, the designs - I love them all. What I don't love is the price that goes with them. We always have a puppy in training around here who thinks it's fun to eat the collar off the other dogs. While they find it amusing, I don't. Especially when I paid good money for a designer collar, only to find that it ended up being a midnight snack on the first night that it was home. (True story.)

Rescue Paws on Etsy has some of the cutest collars I've run across in a while, and a lot of them have matching leashes to boot. Your dog will be the envy of all the others at the dog park on his next outing. Rescue Paws is super-fab in that they keep their prices reasonable. You can afford to get several sets for your best friend, because who wants to wear the same thing twice in public?

Rescue Paws is unique in that a percentage of their sales are donated to Forever Friends Rescue. Forever Friends is involved in rescuing forgotten dogs and finding them loving homes. They run solely on donations and volunteers, and every dollar they get from generous donors like Rescue Paws is greatly appreciated.

GET YOUR OWN: Rescue Paws is giving a 15% discount to any reader who makes a purchase during the month of April. Upon checkout, please mention in the message box that you have a 15% discount from Simple, and they'll revise an invoice for you. Remember, every purchase helps the animals in need.

WIN YOUR OWN: Rescue Paws is incredibly generous in giving one lucky reader a FREE collar. I can attest that these collars are very well made, and absolutely gorgeous. What's more - they're the adjustable style so that they'll fit your pet perfectly. Our Boston looks fab in her new designer duds. Your dog can, too. Rescue Paws will be drawing from those who have made a purchase in April, and the winner will be announced May 1. See how it's a win-win? You get a 15% discount AND entered in a drawing for another free collar. And the true winners will be the pets at Forever Friends Rescue.

Winner will be chosen at random on May 1, 2009!

  5. I do rescue, too. It is so hard to keep up with the needs of collars for each new dog in rescue.

  6. We have 4 dogs (Yes, we're crazy...about dogs, that is...LOL)
    I checked out a bunch of the collar and leash sets. They are sooooo cool!

  7. That would be perfect for our Leila!

  8. We have rescued a dog from the pound along time ago. He was to be put down that day. He was a wonderful Black Labrador.

  9. I have 2 rescue dogs and they would both love to sport a new collar!! Those are adorable.

  10. OMG! I just the cool colors and designs...I have a little dog that would love to be walked on any of these awesome leashes!
