Happy May Day!
This month brings an excellent opportunity to support causes you care about by participating in the Seattle Foundation’s Annual Give BIG campaign.
You can also support Smiley Dog (no money involved!) by sharing an introduction of other services which make your life easier and more convenient. Do you have milk, water, diapers or groceries delivered?
We’d love to chat with your representative of any independent local company offering these services to explore how we may be able to help others like yourself. Simply pass along contact information for your favorite service(s) and we’ll take it from there!

Choose Your Cause- Give Big is Here
There is no shortage of worthy causes to support in the Seattle area. We’re fortunate to have a multitude of pet rescues, shelters, assistance and placement services as well as volunteer clinics.
All of these admirable organizations rely on fund-raisers and donations from generous residents in the areas they serve.
Now is an ideal time to choose your cause and leverage your donation.
On May 3, the Seattle Foundation will hold the 6th Annual GiveBIG Campaign. The beauty of the campaign is that donations to causes of all types can earn bonuses. Read more…
According to an article published in Pet Age magazine, the chemical nepetalactone is the active ingredient in catnip. Nepetalactone is the primary component of an essential oil of the plant.
The chemical is released when the leaves are “disturbed” by rubbing, chewing or other movement. Why then, do some cats go wild from just the smell? That was not addressed in the article. The truth is, no one really knows! Read more…

Bavarian Cat Toys (available mid- May)
This innovative line of cat toys has proven to be a favorite of cats in Europe and is now available here. Hand-crafted and filled with Valerian flowers and Lavender, these toys offer an ideal alternative for cats that are unaffected by catnip.
Valerian can act as a calming aid for humans, but for some cats it has a similar effect as catnip. These potent toys come in a variety of shapes and sizes. We’re currently carrying two of the more popular toys:
Welli Sticks (pack of 2)– These seven-inch long tubes are filled with a combination of Bavarian grown valerian root, lavender, anise and spelt. The outer plush fabric provides a soft and durable casing. ($8.75)
Welli Fish– This cute 6 inch fish is filled with the same enticing combination of German grown valerian root, lavender, anise and spelt. Eye and mouth are stitched on- never glued! ($6.75)
Earth Animal No Hide (available mid- May)
