Pets of the Homeless

Monday, November 15th, 2010

‘Tis the season to be thankful for our blessings and to help those less fortunate. There are many homeless pets as well as people, and I don’t mean strays. I mean pets that are with their families, but living on the streets because they won’t be accepted at human shelters. We’ve recently become aware of an organization that is working tirelessly to make sure those pets can eat and get the basic veterinary care they require.  Please join us in supporting (and giving to) Pets of the Homeless. Surfpet will donate 5% of any purchase made using Coupon Code POTH, at no additional cost to you.  Please use this code at checkout to support Pets of the Homeless. We also urge you to give generously at their website, donate food and supplies, or volunteer. There are many ways that you can help homeless pets and their owners.

Introducing the Singletrak Hydration Pack from Ruffwear

Wednesday, April 14th, 2010

Dehydration on the trail can occur even during the chilly days of Spring, so it is important to remember to pack along water for your dog during any rigorous activity.

While we often remember to pack our own water or sports drink, our dogs are often left to fend for themselves in the ponds, rivers, and lakes along the way.  Because bacteria and parasites fester in shallow, still waters, this is not the best option for your dog.

The need for water during rigorous activity was the inspiration for our latest pack introduction—the SingleTrak Pack™. Those who are familiar with human hydration packs (such as Camelbaks) understand how important convenient, easy to fill, easy to clean hydration is. Ruffwear took these principles and created a lightweight, breathable pack complete with two (2) 0.5L Platypus bladders—one for you and one for your dog!
