Susie’s Hope Movie Giveaway

We have a special giveaway today. You might know Susie as the winner of the 2014 American Humane Association Hero Dog Awards. Susie has a special story, and a movie has been made all about it. We have a DVD of the movie, Susie’s Hope, for one lucky reader, as well as the sound track.

Susie's Hope CoverA puppy that was set on fire and a woman who suffered a brutal dog attack became a dedicated team that eventually changed North Carolina animal-cruelty laws. Susie the Pit Bull mix began life with terror and pain when she was beaten, burned, and abandoned. Susie and her owner both triumphed over pain and fear to become voices for abused animals who have no voice. They visit hospitals, schools, and nursing homes to inspire people never to give up.

It’s a wonderful movie of hope and love. The movie stars some wonderful animal lovers too! But Susie’s Hope is not just a movie, it’s also a non-profit organization that works to promote animal welfare.

Would you like a chance to win the DVD and Soundtrack? Just use the form below! Good luck!

Rescue Spotlight: Best Friends Parrot Garden

The Parrot Garden is a special spot at Best Friends Animal Sanctuary. Pet birds often end up losing their homes, just like dogs and cats. Many of them have special needs, especially because of their long life spans. Luckily, the Parrot Garden is there to help!

Not only do they provide a lot of great interaction, a lovely indoor and outdoor space, but they also have amazing veterinary care. If you would like to learn more about the Parrot Garden at Best Friends, visit the website. And of course, if you are looking to add a feathered friend to your family, be sure to have a look at their adoptables.

Dancing Party Animals

Dancing Party AnimalsDancing Party Animals are cute dancing animals (with a speaker) that connect to your favorite music playing device! Plug in your music, and watch them start to move and groove. They will dance until the music stops.

They have a lot of fun animals to choose from. We were sent a dancing cat and a dancing dog. One alone is a lot of fun, but watching them dance together was even more fun! We used a splitter to hook them both up to the same iPod! It was fun when they would do the same move at the same time. I tried to catch it on video:

They come with the audio cable so you can get started right away! They don’t come with batteries, but only take 3 AA. You can also use a power adapter (not included) if you don’t want to use batteries.

The sound isn’t bad for a little speaker. Of course the real fun is watching them boogie to the beat. And if you just want to listen to music through the speaker, you can do that too! Just turn the dance function off.

They would make a fun gift for a young animal lover!
