Paws For Life Animal Rescue Organization

Today, we had the honor of helping out a very worthy animal resuce organization- Paws For Life. We had a great time meeting everyone that came out to support what they do for all the animals. They did a fundraiser today at Cloverlanes Bowl and had a great turnout.
We donated 25% of our sales today and pet beds for their silent auction.
They are always looking for donations and volunteers. Here is their list of most needed items:
Wish List
- Scoopable cat litter- Litter boxes- Dog and cat toys- Adult cat dry food (Chicken Soup for Cat Lover's Soul, Science Diet, Wellness, Nutro)- Kitten dry food (Chicken Soup for Kitten Lover's Soul, Science Diet, Wellness, Nutro)- Canned cat and kitten food- Cat scratching posts, cat towers, cat condos- Dog and cat collars, leashes- Dog and cat beds- Cages, crates, carriers- Flea prevention drops- Heartworm medication- Gas cards

I will post this on Twitter and Facebook for all our friends. I would like to urge everyone to support at least one local shelter, whether it be with your time, money or supplies.
These people work at hard to foster, love and give the most t.l.c. anyone could ever give.
Our new kitten, Mattie was a rescue kitten from Paws For Life. Her mama, Abby is still available for adoption. Give a rescue animal a home and a new life! They deserve it!

Free Range Dog Chews

Mickey's Pet Supplies proudly carries the Free Range brand of dog chews. Recently, we have been informed that our supplier, Free Range Dog Chews has moved their plant location from Brazil to Argentina.
That has produced a backorder on all our Free Range Bully Sticks, Bully Jr. sticks and Natural bones and we are anxiously awaiting the supply to be available again within the next 30 days.

We thought our customers should know that there are some other companies that have been calling their bully sticks Free Range, but in fact, we have found more information regarding this.
Please beware of some other companies products claiming that they are Free Range Dog Chews.
Buy from retailers that only carry the FREE RANGE DOG CHEWS brand and label.
Here is the press release by Free Range Dog Chews.
Free Range Dog Chews Moving to Greener Pastures
Romeo, MI (January 12, 2010) – In keeping with the Free Range Dog Chew's commitment to market only the finest quality products available, President Ralph Claypool Sr. has announced that due to industry consolidations, the company is moving its beef production from Brazil and its lamb production from the U.S., both to Argentina.
"Argentina offers us the unique opportunity to supply our customers with the world's finest meat products," says Claypool. "Argentine organic beef, mostly from the Aberdeen Angus lineage, is considered some of the healthiest and highest quality and is in demand worldwide." Claypool went on to say that "this is important to Free Range because of the company's belief that ‘healthy treats come from healthy cattle.'"
Free Range Dog Chews takes pride in making products from grass-fed-only cattle. The products have no added hormones, antibiotics, animal by-products, steroids, or preservatives, and present no risk of "mad cow" disease. The chews are merely dehydrated before packaging, which is a safe and natural process.
While the company has been pleased with the quality of Brazil-sourced meat products in the past, this situation has recently changed. "Three U.S. companies now control the majority of the beef in Brazil and have imported their bigbusiness mentality of ‘highest possible production level with least cost'," says Claypool. "Unfortunately, to achieve their goals, they are finding it necessary to begin conforming Brazil's beef industry to U.S. standards, including putting cattle in feed lots; using steroids, hormones, antibiotics, and supplemental by-products (which is illegal in Argentina); and, in some cases, even establishing ranches in the endangered Amazon Rainforest."
"In light of these changes, we have made the decision to move our production operations to Argentina so that we can, with complete confidence, assure our customers that all of our beef and lamb treats are humanely raised in a stress-free environment, with the animals thriving on their native organic diet while they roam free in ecological rotation matrix pastures," asserts Claypool. The company has already opened three plants within a two-hour radius of its raw-material sources, ensuring that all of their products are processed fresh, never frozen. A fourth plant will be online in March 2010.
Free Range Dog Chews Inc. is best known for its Odor-Free Bully Sticks, which will remain the case. In fact, due to the Angus lineage of the cattle, the company will be able to fulfill the overwhelming requests for Supreme/Monster Bully Sticks, as all of the Bully Sticks from Argentina are a larger diameter.
"It has been well worth our investment in time, energy, and financial resources to make this positive move, which has allowed us to maintain our core values, rather than lower our standards," said Claypool. "In this case, the grass is greener on the other side and that's where you'll find us!"
About Free Range Dog Chews Inc.With almost three decades of experience in the pet industry, Free Range Dog Chews Inc. provides customers with dog treats and chews that are as close to nature as possible. The company merely dehydrates them to a shelf-stable level. Free Range Dog Chews proudly offers Odor-Free Bully Sticks, Buckarooz antlers, and one or two-ingredient treats from Beef, Chicken, Duck, Fish, Goat, Lamb, Pork, and Rabbit.

BPA Bisphenol A or BADGE in pet food

We have been doing some research on BPA and pet food cans and really just found out about this chemical additive recently. We have 5 cats and feed them canned cat food and now have decided that it is probably time to switch them to a raw dehydrated diet based on this information.

Here are some articles to help you understand what this chemical is and how it will affect your pets and you.

Here is a great post by that goes into great detail about which brands have this cancer causing chemical added to their cans

You can subscribe to petsumer report and you can go to the truthaboutpetfood blog for a lot of petfood information that is very helpful.

Again, the pet owners have to do their research to see what is in their pet food cans.

It is great to know that these companies do not use BPA in the pet food cans: Chicken soup, Merrick, Weruva, Blue Buffalo, Canidae/Felidae, Petropics, Nutro, Purina, Iams/Eukanuba & Fromm

Mickey's Pet Supplies will be carrying the Honest Kitchen brand of dehydrated raw dog and cat food soon. Their pet foods are an all natural dehydrated raw food from human grade ingredients with NO GLUTEN. It's time to get away from canned pet foods.

Honest Kitchen is made with guaranteed 100% human food-grade because they are not produced in a pet food plant and are stated as such on their labeling. Honest Kitchen foods are made in an FDA approved, human-food-producing facility in Southern California, that makes the very same foods you eat. All grains in Honest Kitchen food are certified organic. Their meats are hormone & antibiotic free and the fruits and vegetables are guaranteed non GMO. Honest Kitchen's Quinoa is certified fair-trade. All of the meats used are USDA approved, US Origin. Their fruits and vegetables are guaranteed non-GMP and grains, kelp and flax are certified organic.

Their pet foods contain no by-products, added salt or sugar, chemical preservatives, artificial colors or flavors of any kind and no beet pulp, rice, wheat, corn, or soy. These are common allergens for dogs and can cause GI upset, dry, itchy skin, hair loss or dullness, lack of energy, chronic ear problems and chewing at the feet.
We are genuinely looking forward to carrying their full line of pet foods and treats.

Dogs find children in rubble in Haiti

This is just an interesting story about the efforts in Haiti to find survivors of the earthquake.

Canine Disaster Search Team Finds Three Children Alive Under the Rubble

PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti, Jan. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- A firefighter and his Search Dog located three girls trapped alive since Tuesday in the rubble of Haiti's devastating earthquake. Bill Monahan and his Border Collie, Hunter, were searching a neighborhood near the Presidential Palace, concentrating on a large bowl-shaped area of rubble which was all that remained of a 4-story building.
After criss-crossing the area, Hunter pin-pointed the survivors' scent under 4 feet of broken concrete and did a sustained "bark alert" to let Bill know where the victims were. Bill spoke with the survivors, then passed them bottles of water tied to the end of a stick. As they reached for the water one of the girls said, "Thank you." Highly trained rescue crews from California Task Force 2 pulled the girls from the wreckage and provided first aid.
Bill and Hunter were trained by the National Disaster Search Dog Foundation -- the only non-profit in the nation that recruits rescued dogs, partners them with firefighters, and trains them to find survivors buried in the aftermath of disasters. The teams and their ongoing training are provided at no cost to Fire Departments throughout the country.
In his report this morning from Haiti, SDF Handler Bill Monahan stated, "It would have been a reward to find one person alive. Finding multiple survivors is a huge victory for everyone on the Task Force. It's a giant team effort. From the canines, to the logistics team, to communications, everyone is working at full capacity, using everything we've been trained to do to find survivors. It's an honor to be here."
At Search Dog Foundation headquarters in Ojai, CA, SDF Founder Wilma Melville received the news with quiet gratitude. "This moment is what SDF Search Teams train for -- week in and week out -- throughout their careers together. When one SDF team succeeds, ALL of our teams succeed. Our thoughts are with our teams in Haiti, who continue to comb the rubble into the night. Their perseverance, skill, and strength in the face of extreme challenges make us all proud, and give us hope."
Added SDF Executive Director Debra Tosch: "All our handlers are experts in reading their canines, pacing them throughout their shift to ensure the dogs are kept safe, healthy, happy and motivated. The canines are literally the Task Force's most precious tool in the hunt for survivors: their well-being is mission-critical."
Bill and Hunter continue to search, as do all seven SDF Search Teams on the ground in Haiti with California Task Force 2 and Florida Task Force 1. Follow their progress at,,
About the National Disaster Search Dog Foundation (SDF)
SDF is a non-profit organization whose mission is to strengthen America's emergency response network by producing the most highly-trained canine-firefighter disaster search teams in the nation. SDF recruits rescued dogs and partners them with firefighters, providing the canines and the training at no cost to their departments. The organization receives no government funding and relies solely on support from individuals, private foundations and companies to produce these highly-skilled teams.
Since its founding in 1996, SDF has rescued hundreds of dogs, many on the brink of euthanasia. They have trained 105 Search Teams, 72 of which are currently active. SDF Teams have been deployed to 66 disasters including the World Trade Center attacks and Hurricane Katrina and state and local emergencies such as earthquakes, mudslides, building collapses, train derailments and missing person searches. Eight of SDF's teams are members of CA-TF2 and are ready at all times for immediate deployment overseas when called upon by the Office of Foreign Disaster Assistance.

Katie's Bumpers Firehose dog toys-Interactive dog toys

Have you wanted to play with your dog in the snow and really wanted a durable toy that you could find amongst the snow banks?

Try Katie's Bumpers dog toys. These toys are made of a rugged firehose material and have a wonderful gripper handle. Katie's bright colors make it so easy to spot.

They float and easy to toss for a great game of fetch and retrieve.

They are just the right weight for your dog to carry. When they get dirty just toss them in the sink with some soap and water or toss in the dishwasher.

They are so many styles to choose from. You can try the bottle tracker. This one has the appeal of a crunchy water bottle that you insert through a velcro opening. You can do the Frequent Flyer that are a triangular or square shape with squeakers inside. They toss great and work on land, water and snow. There are the double handled-tugs and of course for smaller dogs, the mini-tugs.

These interactive dog toys are used by K-9 police trainers, dog trainers, dog behaviorists and come highly recommended by anyone that has used them.

They are made in the USA from tough, pre-consumer recycled fire hose material.

These toys are tough, but should be used with supervision and not given to any dog as a chew toy.
Mickey's Pet Supplies has a large selection of high quality interactive dog toys.
You can call their toll free number 877-863-5431 to order or visit their website at http://www.mickeyspetsupplies/.

Protect your pet from cold weather & help rescue organizations

The midwest and most of our country is undergoing a cold wave right now.
What special precautions should we do to keep our four-legged friends safe and what can we do to help?

#1 Do not leave your pet in the car. Your car acts like a freezer. Never let your dog stay in the car in the winter.
#2 If you have a dog that lives in an outdoor dog house, bring them into the garage or shed in this cold weather. We believe that dogs and cats should be an indoor pet. Do not leave pets outside at all in below freezing conditions.
#3 Protect your dog with warm winter sweaters and coats.
#4 Donate to your local shelters as they are working overtime to help provide food, shelter and love to animals that are struggling in the worst of conditions.
#5 Volunteer for a animal rescue organization

Shelters and rescue organizations are in need of old blankets, towels, food, kitty litter, bleach, mops, paper towels, small beds, pet bowls and foster homes.

A few organizations that we like are,,

Let's keep our furry friends warm and cozy and help those with no voice!
