Pawblo Picasso’s Desk Calendars
Pawblo Picasso is donating 15% of the proceeds from their 2015 desk calendars directly to the ARL. The 2015 calendar costs $14.99 and comes packaged in a CD jewel case, which opens up into an easel to display each month. Each month is a separate page and features a colorful painted illustration of a cat or dog by Pawblo Picasso. Every animal has a unique and adorable personality that is beautifully captured in the illustrations. It easily fits on your desk to quickly reference the date and fits perfectly in a stocking.
Don’t want to shop online? There’s a list of local retailers who carry the calendars.
Designated Dog T-shirts
Designated Dog will donate $10 from each shirt to the ARL. Their shirts are made from 6.1 ounce ringspun cotton and are a premium, soft washed garment pigment dyed fabric. The t-shirts are Made in the U.S.A. and are pre-shrunk.
Harding Lane Hats
Harding Lane creates unique products that look great and give back. The goal of their winter campaign is to help fund-raise and spread awareness for the ARL through the sale of their “black dog” and “yellow dog” hats. During the holiday season 15% of each sale will be donated to the ARL.
Thank you Harding Lane for helping more animals find homes for the holidays by donating to ARL. #homefortheholidays
Gooseneck Vineyards Bottles of Wine
Most of us can agree that a bottle of wine often makes for the ideal hostess gift, but a bottle of wine that helps animals in need, well that just hits it out of the park! Now – December 31 Gooseneck Vineyards will donate $1 to the ARL for every bottle of Gooseneck wine purchased in Massachusetts. For store locations and wine selections visit gooseneckvineyards.com.
If none of these items seem like a good fit for the people left on your list, then consider making a gift to the Animal Rescue League of Boston in the name of the person you are giving the present to. When you make a gift in honor of a person, pet, or occasion, we’ll notify the individual with a personalized card. To make a tribute gift, select “I would like to make a tribute” . Call 617.426.9170 x615 or email us for special requests.
Your donation will go directly to helping animals in need. What better gift is there, other than bringing an animal home for the holidays?
