Keep Your Pets Flea Free, Naturally!

Free Dog

With
an abundance of flea and tick prevention products on the market, surrounded
with a great deal of press and controversy, shopping for a safe and successful product
for your pup can be quite a confusing hassle! But not to worry, Muttropolis is
here to help. We have a Natural Flea & Tick Control Collection that
offers many safe alternative options to keep your pet healthy, happy and flea
and tick free!

All NaturalWhy
do we only carry all-natural remedies? Well we know that prolonged exposure to
chemicals is not good for humans, so why should it be okay for your pet? This
is why we believe in finding only all-natural alternatives to prevent and
control flea and tick infestations. While many chemical-based products seem to
do the trick, they can be dangerous when not used properly and have in many
cases lead to serious illness and death in pets. Reports have demonstrated a
link between chemicals commonly used in flea and tick products to other serious
health problems, so it is very important for pet owners to be educated on
what’s safe and what’s not. Let us help educate you. Below you’ll find more
information about the products in our Natural Flea & Tick Control Collection.

Flea Free Food SupplementFlea Free Food Supplement: Keep your pet flea free the
natural way with this food supplement! Liquid based, this formula contains
garlic (which boasts over 200 vitamins, minerals, amino acids and enzymes) and
vinegar (packed with over 90 nutrients such as essential amino acids, helpful
vitamins, minerals and enzymes). When used daily, Flea Free prohibits
blood-feeding insects from biting and prevents the laying of eggs. For more
information click here.

Arctick Non Toxic Tick Removal Spray: A safe
and 100% effective alternative to typical tick pesticide treatments, Arctick is
a FDA registered non-toxic spray that instantly freezes and kills ticks on
contact. By immobilizing the tick before removal, you can effectively stop the
transmission of fluids between the tick and your pet. Designed to prevent the
spread of infectious disease which may occur during the removal of a tick.
Tweezers are included. For more information click here.

New to Muttropolis, the Fashionably Safe Collar & Leash Combo You’ve Been Searching For!

Pup-protector-logoWith safety at top of mind
and a dedication to finding the latest and most innovative products for your
pet, we’ve teamed up with Pup Protector
to be the first retailer to introduce their fashionably safe collars and
leashes!

Pup Protector was born
after tragedy struck Trevor Jensen and Naraku, his beloved Weimaraner. For six
years, the duo walked every morning before sunrise to maintain optimum mental
and physical health. However, one morning at 4:45AM, Trevor was struck by a car
after throwing Naraku out of the way. Not until that morning did Trevor realize
the real danger that the two of them faced going out in the dark without lights
and/or reflective gear. In search for a solution, Trevor was inspired to build
the Pup Protector brand.

Collar_black
Collar_white
Collar_grey
With a passion to protect every
dog that walks in the dark and a realization that there was nothing on the
market that could meet that need, Trevor started designing and developing a line
of ultra-bright lighted LED collars and leashes. Made with cutting edge
thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU), often used in various eco-friendly products,
Pup Protector collars and leashes are safe and durable. Featuring a row of
extremely bright LED lights with three settings, one static and two different
flashing modes, protective pup parents are able to adjust for maximize
visibility, accommodating preferences and safety concerns. Each collar and
leash has a small battery affixed that will last for roughly 30 hours if lights
are left on static mode. If blinking, the battery life may last even longer.
For consumer convenience, all Pup Protector products are designed to use flat
batteries, also used for watches and financial calculators and available in
many retail locations.

Leash_blackLeash_whiteLeash_grey
The benefits of choosing a Pup
Protector collar and leash goes far beyond keeping your four-legged friend safe
during early morning or late night walks, you’re also able to (1)
easily spot your dog off leash, (2) distinguish your dog in a large pack or at
a dog park, (3) keep an eye on your dog in your yard, and (4) differentiate
between multiple dogs by choosing collars with different LED colors. Built on a
passion to protect and a desire to make a movement, Pup Protector stands behind
their products, offering a 100% satisfaction guarantee.

We
are pleased to stand behind the Pup Protector brand as well, supporting their growth
while being the first to offer these innovative, safe and stylish dog collars
and leashes. Beginning May 3rd, Pup Protector products will be
available in all three of our Southern California
store locations and online at Muttropolis.com. Time to suite your pup
up for safety!

Our Eco-Friendly Collection for Dogs and Cats

Puppy on a globeHappy Earth Day everyone! With an ever increasing abundance of eco-friendly products
and services across industries, it is no surprise that planet friendly pet products
and practices are also on the rise. We here at Muttropolis are very proud to offer a wide, and always expanding,
assortment of eco-friendly pet products.
It is our hope to help reduce carbon pawprints by providing pets with organic dog toys, collars and leashes, biodegradable poop bags and
eco-friendly pet beds, just to name a few!

In honor of Earth Day, and in an effort to educate pet
parents and promote the reduction of carbon pawprints, we’ve put together this
short list of eco-friendly suggestions:

1)      
Get rid of pet junk food. Since nutrition is essential for optimum pet health, it is
important to look for natural and organic pet foods, free of artificial and
genetically engineered ingredients and additives. Look for meat sources that
are raised in sustainable, humane conditions. Many pet food brands include
reconstituted animal by-products, essentially low-grade wastes that humans
wouldn’t touch, let alone eat. At Muttropolis, we carry a large variety of
safe, All Natural Dog Food (including Dehydrated varieties), All Natural Dog Treats, Natural Dog Supplements, and a small assortment
of All Natural Cat Food and Treats as
well.

Poopbags2)      
Pick up poop the biodegradable way. Use
biodegradable bags to pick up your pet’s poop so that it doesn’t live in a
plastic bag at the bottom of a landfill, lasting for hundreds of years to come.
We carry eco-friendly poop pick-up bags, some more eco-friendly than others, with White Compostable Pick-up Bags at the
top of the environmentally friendly list. They are made from 100% renewable
resources, protecting the environment by degrading in as little as 40 days.

3)      
Spoil your pet with sustainable products. Saving the planet can be fun for
your pets too! Choose products that are made from recycled materials or
sustainable fibers. Hemp is a great choice, as it is one of the most abundantly
occurring crops in nature and makes super-strong fabric. Check out our Hemp Star Dog Collar and Leash set that was seen on the CBS
Early Show, or the popular Eco Nap
Recycled Fleece Dog Mat
, made from 85% recycled plastic soda bottles! Our sustainable
product assortment doesn’t stop there, with many more toys and beds that are
made from recyclable fibers, or made to be recycled.

4)      
Choose natural pet care and cleaning products. We carry quite a few grooming products
that are all natural and free of harsh chemicals, such as Richard’s Organics Deodorant Dog Shampoo and Petkin’s Eco Bamboo Pet Wipes and Eye Wipes, all gentle on your pet and the planet. Steer clear of
those brands that produce chemical laced grooming products.

Bonetag

5)      
Make sure your pet always wears a tag. Losing a pet can be trying both emotionally and environmentally.
Printing posters and driving around town in search of your missing four-legged
friend has an environmental impact that could be avoided if you were alerted
quickly that they were found. Whether you choose an electronic ID chip or a
hang tag, the important thing is that your contact information is easily
accessible. Our large Engravable Pet Tag
includes Chrome Pet Tags in a
variety of shapes, Stainless Steel Pet Tags with different image and color
options, as well as Decorate Metal Pet Tags. There is a style and size suitable for every
pet!

Now
is as good a time as ever to start reducing your pet’s carbon pawprints! Please
visit Muttropolis.com or one of our
three Southern California store locations to shop our eco-friendly
assortment
and learn more about planet friendly pet practices.

Join Us & the ASPCA in Preventing Cruelty to Animals

Aspca_logo

In honor of the ASPCA’s Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Month,
we have been hosting extra adoptions in all three of our Muttropolis
stores. For those who don’t know, the ASPCA
is the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, the first
humane society to be established in North America. Each year during the month
of April, they reintroduce an awareness campaign, urging supporters to “Go Orange for Animals.” Orange was chosen for the
campaign because it is a very vibrant, energetic color, used to motivate
supporters to join the campaign to improve the lives of animals across the
country. A wide variety of involvement
options are posted on the ASPCA website.

Dog adoptionWe know that awareness is
key to the success of this campaign, so please join us in educating current and
potential supporters about the abundance of physical, behavioral and environmental
signs of animal cruelty. Some common
signs and symptoms of animal cruelty include tick or flea infestations, wounds
on the body, patches of missing hair, extremely thin and starving animals,
limping, physical abuse, pets who are repeatedly left alone without food or
water, animals who are kept in extreme weather conditions, and animals who
cower in fear or act aggressively when approached. 

In an effort to make it
easier to get involved, the ASPCA has compiled the following top 10 ways that
you can crack down on animal cruelty:

1)       Know who to call to report animal
cruelty.

2)       Get to know and look for the animals
in your neighborhood.

3)       Make the call.

4)       Provide as much information as
possible when reporting animal cruelty.

5)       Contact your local law enforcement
department and let them know that investigating animal cruelty should be a
priority.

6)       Fight for the passage of strong
anti-cruelty laws on federal, state and local levels by joining the ASPCA
Advocacy Brigade.

7)       Set a good example for others. If
you have pets, be sure to always show them the love and good care they deserve.

8)       Talk to your kids about how to treat
animals with kindness and respect.

9)       Support your local shelter or animal
rescue organization.

10)   Start a Neighborhood Watch Program.

To show our dedication and
support for this cause, we’ve hosted 1 to 2 pet adoption events every weekend in
April and will continue to do so through the end of the month. Listed below are the next three adoptions events, one in each
store.
