Pet Crafts & Treat Ideas Wanted

Sandy Sandler, pet owner, founder of non-profit and creator of the best selling Bowdabra, knows that a pet can be a prominent family member. She takes Nouvelle, her husky, on vacation whenever possible, and, out of guilt, hire a sitter when she can't.

Pets can get expensive, even out of control when you start considering food, treats, vet bills, and so many other costs, like toys, beds and so on!

"Here's your chance to show off your crafty or culinary skills and make something cool and unique. Make a collar, make a rattle shaker, or even a quick, healthy, tasty treat," Sandler says. "Create anything that grabs the attention of your furry or feathered friend, a toy, or even a quick, healthy, tasty treat."

It doesn't have to take long and it doesn't have to be expensive. Just try to spend less than $5.00 dollars when making your submission. In fact, Sandler suggests usin the items around your house or garage. Use old T-shirts, socks, shoes…whatever you can get your hands on, grab it, and innovate! Don't stop your creative juices there.

Showcase your craftiness in this month's "Crafts and Treats Kids can Make for their Pets" contest through June 25th, 2010. "Team up with your brothers, sisters, friends or classmates to develop something special for your furry friends," Sandler adds. "Whether a cat, dog or bird, it doesn't matter. A pet is a pet and that qualifies you to enter the contest. You can even make crafts and treats for pets at your local animal shelter."
