Let’s face it: we all love puppies. Young dogs tend to be adopted from shelters and rescue groups quickly, while senior dogs take longer.

The second annual Amazon Pet Deals Days are May 2-3, and there isn’t a more worthy recipient for a just because gift than your local animal shelter. The cats and dogs who are patiently waiting for forever homes are the most deserving (and most appreciative) of new toys and treats. While non-profit animal organizations always need monetary donations, they also need a lot of supplies to keep the animals in their care housed, fed, and entertained.
