I didn’t formally announce it, but I did tweet about it, so in case you missed it…
What is PetBox?
PetBox is a monthly subscription service for toys and treats for dogs and cats. With every PetBox purchased, PetBox helps to feed a pet in need.
Obviously Maeby is all about toys and treats, but what really got me was the philanthropic angle of things, especially since Maeby was brought in as a stray and eventually saved from a high-kill shelter. At one point, she was a pet in need.
Just a few days after our first PetBox shipped, it arrived in the mail. I got home from work, and saw this lovely blue box sitting on our stoop.
Maeby and I immediately headed to our backyard, where I began opening the box.
I loved the attention to detail. Everything was wrapped in black tissue paper, with a round PetBox seal of approval.
Something smelled good, because Maeby was all over the box right away.
And once I opened up one package of treats, she didn’t hesitate to help herself.
Here’s what was in the box:
Clockwise from top:
– Petz info QR ID tag (in case your dog/cat gets lost)
– Evanger’s canned all-natural chicken dog and cat food
– Wellspring Pets Bionic Bones water nutrient (contains glucosamine and chondroitin, both of which help keep your dog’s joints healthy)
– PetSafe Lawn Protector to filter your pet’s drinking water
– Bark+ waste pick-up bags (which is necessary because Maeby “produces waste” 3-4 times a day)
– Loving Pets natural chicken jerky
Clearly there was a nice variety of items, all of which we will be using
I want to point out that just because Maeby’s a dog, it doesn’t mean that she deserves to eat food that has fillers or other processed materials. I like to feed her the same kind of food I would want to eat, and even though I’m sure she’d prefer bacon all day everyday (and really, who can blame her), I give her the next best thing: Canidae, which is an all-natural, grain-free food made with real meat. In keeping with these beliefs, I’m really quite impressed with PetBox and love that all of the treats are natural and made in the U.S. And, as I mentioned above, Maeby is already enjoying some of her newest treats and had no trouble helping herself.
I think it’s safe to say our first month of PetBox was a success.
