ASPCA's "No Pet Store Puppies" Campaign And Gift Pack Giveaway!

We first wanted to entice you with ASPCA's generous donation to one Bocci's Beefs reader: You could be the one to win this gift pack from the ASPCA that includes a jingle bells collar, a doggy or kitty stocking, a Smidge cat toy, ASPCA Holiday Cards, Walkers Shortbread Cookies and lots of other keen stuff for your beloved four-legged companion (the tote and cookies are for you!). See details at the end of this post. But hurry, this giveaway ends soon!

But before we get to the giveaway... we hope you'll take just one minute to watch this video from the ASPCA that 's part of their "No Pet Store Puppies" Campaign. The video is entitled Puppies Are Not Toys. It's one of the most powerful pieces of information that we've ever seen, and we're proud to spread it far and wide.

As you may know, the holiday season is when many people are buying gifts in pet stores. In fact, a newly released poll states that "Americans plan to spend more than 2.5 billion on pets over the holidays this year. But unfortunately, 59% of pet gift shoppers would consider shopping at a store that also sells puppies. And as we know, puppies that are sold at stores more than likely come from puppy mills, so part of that $2.5 million in revenue goes to support the puppy mill industry. It's not enough to just not buy a puppy from a store (you're not rescuing the puppy, you're supporting the market for puppy mills),  we simply can't support that heinous industry in any way. So please, shop for gifts for your pet and for   other's pets in stores that don't sell puppies-there are many fabulous pet product stores that either sell no animals at all, or feature animals from local shelters and rescues for adoption. As always, thanks for your support!

                Now on to the ASPCA Gift Pack giveaway!
This giveaway will run from today, Saturday December 15, through Thursday December 20 at 8:00 pm EST, so this is a fairly short window of opportunity to enter! The one winner will be chosen by computerized random drawing and announced on the evening of December 20.

My daughter got her cat from the pound so I agree that puppy mills should be stopped. Let's hear it for the Dogs and Cats.
