Golly Gear was started by a sister team several years ago to specialize in “fun, affordable, and practical products especially for small dogs.” As life-long small-dog people, they understand how difficult it can be to find appropriately-sized products for small dogs; from harnesses, to toys, to treats, to leashes and collars.

Golly Gear developed a particularly broad selection of harnesses for small dogs – each with a particular strength (no-choke, no-escape, easy-on, for hard-to-fit, non-chafing, etc.). To help people find the right harness for their dogs they even developed a “DIY Harness Selector“!

To enter the giveaway please use the form below! Good luck, and thanks to Golly Gear for providing the prize for the giveaway.

Family Comedy RESCUE DOGS Finds its Four Legs

Rescue Dogs movie star ChargerA first of its kind family comedy, RESCUE DOGS features real rescue animals in the starring roles of this kid-friendly narrative feature. A heartwarming story about how rescue animals can sometimes return the favor by saving their owners with their unconditional love and care, RESCUE DOGS is aimed to make audiences laugh and smile, but also make a difference to animal rescues nationwide. The production team has agreed to donate a significant portion of their proceeds from the film to select partner rescue organizations across the country. “From the time we joined this film, we knew it would not only be a great indie-kids film, but also a remarkable chance to raise awareness and money for animal rescues,” says Dan Cunningham, President of Busted Buggy Entertainment. “It’s a fun, simple film that can make a big difference.”

The film features dynamic comedy performances from its non-four-legged cast including up-and-comer Courtney Daniels, Paul Haapaniemi, and Jordan Rawlins. Rawlins is also the creator and writer of the screenplay. The project is helmed by co-directors Michael J. Anderson and Haik Katsikian.

Principle photography is complete and the edit for RESCUE DOGS is well underway. Currently the producers and co-directors are engaging talent to voice the furry rescue leads and anticipating those cast announcements over the next month. “So many great actors and celebrities have a passion for rescuing animals. By reserving a few of the voiceover roles from the beginning, we have the opportunity to offer those actors the chance to be a part of this film and make a difference,” says Cunningham.

In planning the release of the film, currently slated for October, Busted Buggy Entertainment is engaging rescue organizations nationwide, as well as pet brands that are focused on helping rescue animals. Announcements of these partnerships and benefiting charities are expected to begin early in the summer. For more information about the film find them on at http://Facebook.com/rescuedogsdmovie.

Happy National Shelter Pet Adoption Day!

We want to wish you a very HAPPY national shelter pet adoption day by introducing “Happy” the Cat and “Happy” the Dog!

Happy the Cat Happy the Dog

These beloved Pet Ambassadors of Hallmark Channel and Hallmark Movies & Mysteries were adopted last year by Crown Media Family Networks’ President and CEO, Bill Abbott, as part of the company’s evergreen PET PROJECT initiative, which seeks to show through entertainment the joys that animals bring to our lives every day.

In the past 5 years, Hallmark Channel has become known for programming that is entertaining and that serves as a catalyst for shelter pet adoption. Some of the network’s marquee franchises include “Hero Dog Awards Show,” “Kitten Bowl,” “Paw Star Game,” and the upcoming 2016 program, “Ultimate Kitten Summer Games.” Additionally, pet adoption or shelter pets have been at the heart of some of the network’s highest-rated Original Movies, “Nine Lives of Christmas,” “My Boyfriends’ Dogs,” and “Puppy Love,” to name a few. As part of the “Tip to Tail” press tour, “Happy” the Cat and “Happy” the Dog will celebrate many pet-related holidays, including National Shelter Pet Adoption Day on April 30th and Be Kind To Animals Week beginning on May 7th, with the mission to galvanize culture around the belief that the most beautiful pets on the planet are those in shelters waiting on a forever home.

Happy the Dog

“Crown Media Family Networks is proud to support pet adoption and encourage viewers and fans to discover the unmatched love and profound joy a shelter pet can bring into their own families, especially on this day of national awareness and beyond,” said Bill Abbott, President & CEO, Crown Media Family Networks. “With this promotional effort by our Pet Ambassadors, we hope to expand and further our mission of bringing incredible and lovable rescue animals into the spotlight, and through exceptional entertainment, show just how wonderful it can be to give an animal a home.”

“Happy” the Cat, a three-year-old tabby rescued from an Ohio animal shelter, was the first official rescue pet adopted by the network in 2014. “Happy” the Dog is the newest pet to join Crown Media Family Networks’ furry family, becoming the company’s first-ever canine goodwill ambassador. In addition, this adorable pup has just begun training toward certification to be a therapy dog for sick children and their families.
