Hello, friends!

We're well into the dog days of summer, and here at Team MUTTS, we've been busy building a new wag-worthy community! We're thrilled to let you know that we'll soon be launching YAP, a MUTTS online community where all animal lovers and MUTTS readers can come together, share stories, swap ideas, and build new friendships.

To make this free community the best it can be, we'd love to ask you a few questions. Please share your thoughts with us in this short survey! Plus, as a thank you for answering our questions, you'll receive a one-time promo code for 15% off your next purchase. Yesh!

We've also been busy this month celebrating Clear the Shelters. This nationwide adoption initiative is taking place throughout the month of August to help pets find their forever homes and raise funds for shelters to support their incredible work. Take a gander at our recent blog post to learn how you can help! And if you've adopted a pet this year, we've got a very special giveaway to celebrate.

Finally, as we do every year, we headed down to the Shore to enjoy a little bit of sand and sea. But as is always the case, we found happiness there too.

May you be as happy as a clam, a lark, a pig in mud, and a warm puppy combined.

I love the cartoons!

Yes, I’ve been wondering about chained dog’s status too. Been looking forward to his freedom! Any updates, please?

Monica Skaggs

Around this time last year , if i remember correctly, you mentioned some thing happening involving chained dog. Is that on hold?

Clear the Shelters is such an important goal! I’m happy to be a part of the Mutts team helping with that. I would love to know if there is any way we can support stopping puppy mills. I hope to see more on this initiative. Thanks as always for making my day(s)!

The saying “Happy as a Clam” always makes me laugh because it’s so goofy. So it’s a conveyor of happiness in my world. Thanks, Clams! And thanks, Patrick, for all the laughs and sweet goings-on of the Mutts family.

They’re warm hearted, kind, always thinking of others….well maybe not with the butcher. I can read the scrip without any political or social media spitefulness. Also, thanks for reminding me to support my local shelter! Our dog has so much, toys, blankets, even unopened dog treats, so I took them to our shelter, they were very appreciated by the staff.

I like mooch and Earl! The way they were always there for each other!
