Shopaholics and animal lovers rejoice! Women’s retailer Anthropologie is hosting its annual Sit. Stay. Love. campaign, a pet adoption event and pet supply drive for animal shelters across the country, the weekend of September 20-22. All 180 Anthropologie stores across the U.S. and Canada will host events and, with our support, strive to break adoption and donation records from last year.
Now in its fifth year, Anthropologie’s Sit. Stay. Love. campaign has resulted in hundreds of dog adoptions and raised thousands of dollars in supplies for local shelters.
For more information about Sit. Stay. Love. and to find an event near you, visit Anthropologie.
It’s nearly impossible to begin a new school year without laying out some cash—but the good news is that when you shop for everyday necessities, you can raise money for the ASPCA at the same time!
When you use the online shopping portalWe-Care.com to shop at your favorite stores, the ASPCA automatically receives a donation at no cost to you. You can find outfits and bookbags, of course, but from computers to eyeglasses, so many other back-to-school items are carried by We-Care’s merchants—the site also hosts more than 10 textbook sellers!
You can sign up for our We-Care.com secure browser extension here. It takes less than a minute to set up, and once you do, a reminder will let you know when you’ve visited a participating merchant’s website.
Thank you for thinking of animals while you shop for your family. This support has made a real difference for the ASPCA!
Attention cat lovers! If you’re a fan of all things feline, we know you’ll be excited to hear about the Feline Arts Council, a new program from our longtime partner Fresh Step cat litter.
The Feline Arts Council, comprised of some of the utmost authorities on creative cat creations including ASPCA cat expert Eileen Hanavan, is on a mission to promote the paw-sitive representations of cats in mainstream culture. The Feline Arts Council will bestow its seal on America’s top purr-worthy products, which will be donated to the ASPCA and sold in our Online Store.
To kick off the program, the Council selected a handmade sterling silver cat ring, designed by Catherine Dmitrieva, owner of the Etsy shop KatStudio. The proceeds from each purchase of the limited-edition ring, available here in sizes 5-9, will benefit the ASPCA.
We’ve told you about our partnership with Nickelodeon on a new preschool series, “PAW Patrol,” and it’s almost time for the show’s primetime premiere! Mark your calendars: “PAW Patrol” will air Monday, August 12, at 8:30 P.M. (7:30 Central) on Nickelodeon.
In honor of Adopt a Shelter Cat Month last June, we teamed up with Threadless.com to find the best superhero feline t-shirt design—and more than 600 of you submitted ideas! There were laser cats, ninja cats, cats with beards and even cats on unicycles, but there can be only one top dog in this competition. And the winner is…Atomic Kitty!
The winning designer received an amazing gift bag, including a $500 Threadless.com gift code and two tickets to the ASPCA’s annual Young Friends benefit in New York City. And, of course, proceeds from this cute t-shirt will help prevent cruelty to animals across the country!
Thanks again to everyone who participated in the design contest. You can purchase Atomic Kitty t-shirts on Threadless.com.
