Happy Mother’s Day to All!

This Mother’s Day, I ask you to not only think about your own mom, but to think of all the mom’s on this planet that love their children. Whether you’re taking your mom out to brunch, you haven’t seen your mom in awhile, or even if they are no longer living, there is most certainly and undeniably a natural bond between mothers and their babies.

This Mother’s Day, consider the grieving diary cow that had her calf stolen from her only moments after given birth. Think of the mother goat that was slaughtered for meat and didn’t get to see her babies grow up. Think of the mother sheep that witnesses her children’s wool being ripped from their skin… the mother pig that watches her piglets waste away in filthy cages or get smashed against concrete for being “too small.” Think of the baby chickens that will miss out on a life with their mom and are ground up alive only seconds after being born.

All Mother’s love their children. All beings want and deserve to be loved. A cow, a pig, a chicken, a deer… they are no different than us.

California has passed The Pet Rescue and Adoption Act, which requires pet stores to exclusively sell rescue animals! Way to go, California!

This is a huge win for animals! With the amount of animal surrenders, homeless pets and euthanization rates on the rise, California has passed bill 485 which will ban the sale of dogs, cats, and rabbits from puppy mills, kitten factories, and mass breeding operations.

All animals sold in pet shops must come from animal shelters, rescues, or adoption centers! This will greatly reduce the amount of animals in shelters and increase adoptions significantly! This change will take place by January 2019.

Congratulations, California! Which state will be next?

Panda Paw – Cute Items for a Great Cause!

Organization: Panda Paw

“Our passion for pandas was ignited when we first saw them at the San Diego Zoo. Someday, we want our children to share that same spark. But with under 2,000 pandas left in the wild – we asked ourselves how could we help? Panda Paw was founded in 2016 to help #savethepandas”

Our goal is to design clothing that makes you look amazing while supporting the conservation of the beloved giant panda. We donate 10% of proceeds to pandasinternational.org. Feel free to shoot us an email! info@pandapaw.co”

Review:

I was so thrilled to be contacted by Panda Paw about becoming an Ambassador! Anytime that I can help protect animals, you know I’m down!

10% of proceeds go to Pandas International, a non-profit whose mission is to “ensure the preservation and propagation of the endangered Giant Panda.” Sounds great to me!  

I ordered Panda Paws’ Black Panda Hat. I’ve been on a hat kick lately, so why not get this one? It’s cute, casual, and has a little panda face on the front. What’s not to love?

The hat is one-size-fits-all and adjustable. It has the Panda Paws logo on the back, so whenever people watch you walk away (you know they’re checking you out after all those squats you do!) they’ll see it and hopefully check out the Panda Paw website.

They also have some REALLY cute tops that I plan to pick up soon, and a rose gold bamboo ring (currently pre-order only) that’s adorable!

The Bottom Line

Panda Paws offers high-quality items and donates a portion of their proceeds towards a great cause. With so few Giant Pandas left, we need more companies like this one! Head on over to their website to pick up this hat, or one of their adorable shirts to help the Giant Pandas!

Thank you, Panda Paw, for accepting me a Brand Ambassador! If you’re interested in becoming an ambassador, head on over to their site!
