Chocolate for a Cause

A Paws Cause that is!  Valentine's Day is quickly approaching (and by then THIS girl will be able to eat chocolate) (and believe me I plan on it!)

I am 32, and I have only spent very few of those years without a dog, everyone of them a rescue.  I hate to think about how many sweet pups don't find a home.  Those SPCA commercials tear me up, throw in Sarah Mclachlan and I'm dead.  Then the pictures of these dogs, looking all sad.  Ok, here's what I have to say about that.  Marketing, very clever marketing.  Everytime I go to the SPCA, the dogs are barking and excited and saying pick me! No pick me!

Deb @ On Cupcake Moon posted this on facebook and I am all over it. is a site dedicated to saving lives of animals in rescue organizations around the country.  100% of their net profits are going to help these animals, that is incredible!

Their chocolate is Vegan too!  I would love to give it a try..check out these flavors:

  • Peanut Butter Pit Bull (crispy peanut butter and chocolate, countering the negative public image of the pit bull-type dogs)

  • Pick Me! Pepper (sweet ’n spicy dark chocolate with peppers, highlighting the advantages of choosing pets from animal shelters instead of breeders or pet stores)

  • Foster-iffic Peppermint (dark chocolate with peppermint, highlighting the need for people to provide foster care for shelter animals as they await their forever homes)

  • The Fix (plain 72%, highlighting the importance of spay and neuter)

  • Mission Feral Fig (fig, cranberry, almond, and spices, highlighting the humane solution for feral cats, TNR)

  • FUTURE “Forever Mocha” (mocha coffee flavor, highlighting ways to help people make and honor a lifetime commitment to their pets)

  • I love this idea, love this company!
    Eat chocolate, Save an rescue animal.

    PS - If you'd like to send me chocolate for Valentine's Day, send me an email and I will be more than happy to help you help save an animal.  It would be my pleasure!

    1. The SPCA commercials get me too. And my kitty cat, Wilson, hates them because I always scoop him up and hug him extra tight when they come on!
