Sadly black cats have the most difficult time being adopted (followed by black dogs). One reason: they're more difficult to see in the shadow of their crate. A brightly-colored cat bed or crate mat (starting at just $4.99 at #TuesdayMorning, compare at $19.99) can help a black cat be far more visible!
A bright orange vest, t-shirt or bandanna can help make black dogs more visible in the shadow of their kennels so that they're not overlooked. Visit your local #TuesdayMorning store to find deeply discounted products for crafting your own "adopt me" items to donate to your local shelter!
Did you know that there's a National Craft for Your Local Shelters Day that encourages everyone to make products for their local pet shelter? Held July 21, the day draws attention to the many toys and crafts you can make (although, if you have missed it, the good news is that shelters need your items EVERY day!) Visit your local #TuesdayMorning store for discounted craft items to start creating goodies for your local shelter!
Shelter dogs can get anxious. A treat ball can help the dog focus on the treats, moving the ball so each treat (or piece of kibble) falls out one by one. Interactive toys like this treat ball are available at deeply discounted prices at #TuesdayMorning; priced at just $5.99 (compare at $15.99), this makes a great shelter donation!
