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.
As 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
Every 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!
Whether they like to snuggle up or stretch out!
Let’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.
For feasting, one of their favorite times of the day!
We 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.
Plush, rubber, tough, interactive, there are toys for every pup’s playing preferences!
Toys 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.
Essentials when bringing a new pup home!
A 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.
Great for nutrition, training, and the obvious… rewarding!
Keep 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!
