October is National Adopt-A-Dog Month!

Adopt-A-Dog Month

The best way to honor Adopt-A-Dog
Month
is by adopting a dog in need! Choose a pup from a shelter or rescue
group and you’ll save a life, save money, find a healthy pet, help in the fight
against puppy mills and pet stores, and feel better! A while back we posted some
excellent tips on how to get started,
and choosing the right pet.

Live near a Muttropolis store? Then you’re in luck! For the
month of October, we’ll be hosting
multiple adoptions
every weekend in each of our three Southern
California stores. We’ve included the dates and times for each of
these adoptions below. As a congratulations and thank you, we’ll be providing
every dog that is adopted at one of our events with a Muttropolis “wag bag,”
filled with goodies to enjoy with their new family.




Save A LifeAs some of you may know, Muttropolis is an “Animal Admirer”
for the San Diego Humane Society.
We’ve already admired two pups that have found loving homes, and recently
received our newest animal to admire, Huxley. He’s a male American Pit Bull Terrier
Mix, a staff favorite, and extremely smart after having undergone extensive
training for etiquette, housetraining and tricks. He loves to perform
and thrives in active, athletic environments like the dog park. Huxley is just
over 7 years old and neutered. For more information about handsome Huxley and
the adoption process at the San Diego Humane Society, visit his profile. The video of him showing off his skills will
win you over right away!Huxley is featured in many of the images below.

No matter how you choose to adopt, whether from a shelter,
rescue group, or someone you know, there is one thing we know for sure,
every
dog "can't wag without"
 
these
essentials:

Collar & Leash

Essentials
for safety, and don’t forget a personalized tag!


Dog CollarEvery dog needs a collar
and leash for walks, to hold their identification tag(s), and to show of their
personal style! Our wide collar assortment includes color, fabric and style
options for each and every canine customer, most with coordinating leashes. And
to keep your pup safe in the unfortunate event that they ever get lost, an
engravable tag is a must-have too. We have over 100 one-of-a-kind styles to
choose from!

Bed

Whether they
like to snuggle up or stretch out!


Dog BedLet’s face it, dogs
sleep a lot, so having a comfortable, well-crafted bed is something each
four-legged fur ball should have. We carry all of the top selling designer and
luxury dog beds included square bolstered, donut, double donut, pillow,
outdoor, mats, blankets, duvets and more! Options to accommodate every pup’s
sleeping preferences and home décor.

Bowls or Feeders

For
feasting, one of their favorite times of the day!


Raised Dog FeederWe believe that dogs should
dine in style. To accommodate for differing design preferences, we have classic
ceramic bowls, sleek stainless steel feeders, contemporary wooden designs, and
much more! Why do we love raised feeders? With their elevated ergonomic design,
they aid in digestion, preventing pups from eating too quickly and suffering
from the uncomfortable side-effects.

Toys

Plush,
rubber, tough, interactive, there are toys for every pup’s playing preferences!


Dog ToysToys are like good
friends, the more the merrier! We have unique toys for pup’s that love plush,
enjoy playing fetch, need something interactive to eliminate boredom, or play
so hard they need a toy build tough! Keep your new addition entertained and
you’re sure to have a much easier transition and happier pup.

Training Tools

Essentials
when bringing a new pup home!


Training ToolsA well trained dog is
a happy dog, so be sure to stay in control when you bring your new pup home. Effective
dog training tools that are safe and humane make this much easier! Dog crates, training collars, no-pull harnesses, potty pads and anti-bark
products, can all be lifesavers in establishing a safe and secure environment.

Treats

Great for
nutrition, training, and the obvious… rewarding!




Stella & Chewy's Carnivore CrunchKeep it all-natural!
We have done the research on dog nutrition so that you don’t have to. All of
our treats are all-natural, easily digestible, preservative-free, wholesome and
delicious. And best of all, each month we offer a special promotion on a Treat
of the Month
, this month it is Stella & Chewy’s freeze-dried dog treats.
Buy 2, get 1 free for the whole month of October!

some ways you can still help.

Muttropolis Will Be At The 22nd Annual Pug Party This Saturday in Del Mar!

BannerWe’re happy
to announce our participation in the 22nd
Annual Pug Party
put on by Pug
Rescue of San Diego County (PRSDC)
, an all-volunteer organization dedicated
to rescuing unwanted, neglected, abandoned or relinquished pugs and placing
them in new, loving and caring home environments. The party will take place
from 10AM to 4PM at the Infield Pavilion area of the Del Mar Fairgrounds.
Admission is $10 for adults and $5 for children.

The Del Mar
Pug Party is the PRSDC’s largest fundraiser, with over 500 pugs in attendance each
year. This year’s theme is “Pug Super Heroes,” with costume contests, talent
competitions and chow down competitions for all pug attendees to enjoy. Contest
entry fees are $5 per pug per contest. After enjoying those activities, pugs
can relax and socialize at the exclusive Pug Café while owners shop at the
Unique Pug Boutique and vendor booths, enter in the raffle for a chance to win
one of the 20 basket prizes, or socialize over refreshments. There will also be
an “Ask the Vet” booth with three registered veterinarian technicians available
to answer questions and clip nails.

MultipleOur involvement
in this year’s event includes the donation of a raffle prize and attendance at
a vendor booth. We’ll be offering specially selected, pug perfect products
including Buddy Belt Dog Harnesses
and matching Buddy Belt Leashes,
all handcrafted from 100% soft, double-layered leather. Buddy Belt Dog Harnesses
are one of our most popular harnesses and come highly recommended by
veterinarians as they provide both comfort and control while eliminating any
stress on the pet’s neck. The leather is very durable, yet softens and molds to
the pet’s body for a custom fit.

To help pugs
beat the heat we’ll also have Gulpy
Water Dispensers
. These dispensers are a great way to take H2O on the go,
functioning as both a water bottle and bowl in one. And for treats, we will
have Mutt Munchers, our Muttropolis exclusive
dog treats made locally in Southern California.
Grain-free with only all natural, human-grade ingredients, Mutt Munchers are
delicious and nutritious, available in a variety of flavors for pup’s differing
dietary needs and preferences.


GulpyPeanut

The Annual
Pug Party will be a fun-filled, memorable event for all, and we are very happy
to be a part. For more information about the PRSDC’s 22nd Annual Pug
Party, visit www.pugbutts.com.


Please note: Due to a new
requirement by Del
Mar, proof of each pug’s rabies vaccination will be needed for entry. Those
without documentation may need to sign a release statement certifying that
their dog(s) do not have such vaccinations. The waiver is available at
www.pugbutts.com. Pug Rescue regrets any inconvenience this new rule by Del Mar may cause.

Save 33% On Mutt Munchers During the Month of May!

Our much
loved Mutt Munchers are the “Treat of the Month” for May! Delicious,
nutritious and made fresh in local Southern California,
these grain-free dog treats, exclusive to Muttropolis, are 33% off all month
long.

MeatballAvailable
in a wide variety of flavors, Mutt Munchers are sure to compliment any pup’s
dietary needs and preferences. Our current assortment includes Peanut Butter Poppers, Blueberry, Banana Split, Salmon Snappers, Bacon Bites, Liver Lovers, and the new and improved Meatball, now made with more meat! All flavors are grain-free and
include only all natural, human-grade ingredients. Garbonzo beans take the
place of grain, resulting in a tasty treat that is packed with protein and a
good source of dietary fiber.

Why choose
grain-free? Grains are a common allergy in dogs and can cause itchiness and
other uncomfortable symptoms. Because grains take much longer to break down in
the stomach, dogs often have trouble digesting them. Sticking with food and treats
that are grain-free will make a positive impact on any pup’s health.

One of our
loyal Muttropolis customers described her and her pup’s happiness with the
Bacon Bites Mutt Munchers as such:



Bacon2
These treats are wonderful! They
smell absolutely delicious, which is a refreshing change from most commercially
available dog treats. They are the perfect size for providing a small snack,
without having to worry about my corgi putting on weight. They are a good
value, as well. One bag lasts about 2 months, and that’s with giving her 1-2
treats each day. – CorgiSD from San Diego

Delicious,
nutritious and cost efficient, Mutt Munchers are a great addition to any dog’s
diet! So don’t miss out, they are only on sale from May 1st through May
31st. Online customers can redeem this special offer at Muttropolis.com by using the code MUNCH33
at checkout. The promotion is also being offered at all three of our Southern California store
locations

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.
