Kiss My Mutt + Celebrity Pups

August 10, 2011

Last week, we were pleased to announce Kiss My Mutt™ products were delivered to some of Hollywood’s most famous pups in a gift bag catered specifically to celebrities’ dogs and cats. The bag is so cleverly called the ‘HollyWOOF’ gift bag, and was delivered to celeb pups, like Blake Lively’s maltipoo named Penny, Drew Barrymore’s rescued mutt named Douglas Fairbanks Barrymore, Justin Timberlake’s two boxers named Brennane and Buckley, Denise Richard’s clan of pups, Betty White’s golden retriever named Pontiac, Oprah’s five precious pups, Sunny, Luke, Layla, Lauren, and Sadie, and many more!

All the celeb pups received a 2011 Limited Edition Kiss My Mutt™ Tote Box that included swag like Kiss My Mutt™ braided collars and leashes, our adorable little tees and our reversible bandanas. We were so pleased to be included in this swag bag because the style, durability, and quality of our products is being noticed and appreciated by people who have “seen it all,” but also because a lot of the celebrities included in this list are those that are very much involved in philanthropic work across the world for both animals and people…and we can say we appreciate that a lot!

2nd Annual Charity Dog Wash!

August 4, 2011

On July 24th, 2011, we held our 2nd Annual Charity Dog Wash + Photo Booth fundraiser to raise money for the food and medical bills for the dogs at the Santa Barbara Animal Shelter and non-profit group, K-9 PALS. The dog wash was a blast again this year, with the help of the Kiss My Mutt team, the volunteers at K-9 PALSKristen Beinke Photography, and the Monarch Pet Spa group.

The dog wash was such a success last year, we set up the event for the second year in a row in the hopes that more dirty pups and their owners would swing by after their day at the beach for a warm bath, a perfect pup photo booth session, and a donation to the cause! Well, a lot of dogs and their families showed up to support the cause again and we raised much needed funds for the dogs at the shelter.

After the pups were washed by the Kiss My Mutt team and the K-9 PALS volunteers, they had the option to have their photos taken by professional photographer, Kristen Beinke!

The Kiss My Mutt booth at the event was a great success too! We raised money for the shelter with 50% of proceeds from the day going to K-9 PALS and the cause!

We hope we can inspire other dog lovers around the country to set up events to help out their local animal welfare groups so we can all be the change we are looking for!
