BumperPet | Fun Products for Dog Lovers and Support Dog Rescue

This is a sponsored post and there is a giveaway at the end!

As you may have figured out, I love dogs and I love dog rescue.  Recently, someone introduced me to a Chicago-based company called BumperPet who is teaming up with The Dog Saving Network to put on a weekly pet lotto to raise awareness of adoption animals, as well as to promote the value of positive reinforcement training.

They are hosting a weekly drawing on YouTube where an actual rescue dog spins the wheel to determine that week’s winning lottery numbers.  The dogs that help with choosing the lottery numbers have found their forever homes, so they aren’t available for adoption.  However, each dog was deemed unadoptable and thanks to The Dog Saving Network, who works with these types of dogs, the message is being delivered that so-called “problem” dogs can be trained and become valuable, loyal and loving members of someone’s family.

The entire purpose is to raise awareness about animal rescue and I think this is a clever idea, because who doesn’t love cute dogs and who doesn’t love winning things?  Even better, there is a ton of cool gear (which I received as a gift) on the BumperPet site and a portion of their sales are donated to animal shelters.

I recently wrote a book, Easy Social Media Tips for Animal Rescue, because I know that there are loads of rescue groups out there and it’s hard to be heard in this very LOUD world of social media.  I thought my tips would help rescue groups connect more with fans who can help.  What I didn’t consider was anything outside of traditional social media (Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, etc).  BumperPet and Dog Saving Network did think outside the box and I hope you’ll take the time to check them out.  Definitely check out their store – there are loads of great gift ideas.

A couple of these I received, the rest are on my Wish List…

  1. I would buy the Labrador coffee mug. Our baby girl is Lab/Retriever and she is such a sweetheart.

    • I just ordered a mug and I can’t remember if I ordered the bone one or the “dog” one – but I love them both and kept going back and forth. I guess it’ll be a fun surprise when it arrives :)

  2. What a great site! I also love creative ways to bring awareness to adoption and rescue, and it’s such a great way to show that “problem” dogs can become wonderful family members!

    I love the “Rules of the House” pillow. Still laughing, ‘cuz it’s so true.

  4. I like the ADOPT A MUTT. THEIR HEARTS ARE PURE SHIRT in teal. I have two large breed rescue dogs and they are great furkids.

  5. Fun site and what a great idea. I like the custom tshirts. Would love to send in a pic of my mixed girl Rita, since she doesn’t really look like the silhouette of either of the breeds she’s supposed to be (GSD/beagle).

  6. I’ve heard of this before and thinks it’s a pretty nice idea. I’ve also looked at their merchandise in the past and really like the pitbull shirt… but now looking at the “I like big mutts” it’s a tough choice!

    • I know. I love my tshirt. I got a huge one so that I can sleep in it. :)

  7. You know me…I love my Labs! I’m torn between the Lab mug and Lab tote…maybe I’ll get both. :)

    Love the Rules of the House pillow, too.

  8. I have nine rescue dogs and one foster. Most of my dogs are mutts and I work with Bulldog rescue. I love everything but especially the “I like BIg Mutts and I cannot lie” shirt, the BUlldog dry erase decal and the BUlldog tote. Thank you! :)

    • That one is definitely popular. I love mine!

  9. Such a difficult choice, so many great things! I love the “house rules” products. Then again, I love the sheltie themed products (especially a t-shirt)…

  10. I love their decorative pillows.. and because I`m a chihuahua owner of 3, I really like the one with the chihuahua silhouette on it (but I`m not a breedist, I love them all haha)!

    Reply
    • LOL, love the term “breedist.”

      Reply
  11. I want that “I like big mutts” shirt. LOL Where can I buy one?
