Rescue Box is a monthly subscription of dog toys, treats, chews and other goodies. It allows you to both spoil your pets and help homeless pets in need. Rescue Box donates portions of each purchase to its charity partners Greater Good, A Shot At Life, and Rescue Bank, who donate food and vaccines to animal rescues and shelters.
Subscribers can read about the real impact their purchases have in helping homeless animals. Each Rescue Box includes a card containing the photo and story of a shelter dog or cat that was helped by one of the many non-profit animal rescue groups who receive financial donations from Rescue Box.
Rescue Box costs $29.99 for a 1-month subscription.
This month I am doing a special “double feature” review of the October and November Rescue Box subscriptions, as they cover the Thanksgiving and Christmas holiday themes.

The October 2016 Rescue Box had a Thanksgiving theme. The information card gives you details about the box contents
Everything in my October Rescue Box!
Dogwood Mini Acorn Chain ($8.99). I previously purchased this for my power chewer, who loved it, so was thrilled to receive it in a Rescue Box. It is made in part with real wood, which dogs love for some reason, and my dog is no exception. It is very sturdy but gives a little when chewed, which seems to thrill my dog.
Power Plush Turkey ($9.99). This adorable plush turkey is the perfect size for my small and small/medium dogs (15lbs and 23lbs). My little guy has gotten hours of pleasure thrashing it around and engaging me in tug-of-war with it.
Totally Grainless Sausage Bites ($6.99). These are intended to be long-lasting chews. Unfortunately, one of my dogs tries to swallow chews instead of chewing them, so he could not try these, as they are small enough he would definitely choke. My power chewer, who appreciates the art of prolonged chewing, sniffed these but didn’t want to try them. If your dog is prone to gulping treats, be wary of these – they’re simply too small to be safe.
XOXO Triple Cheese ($5.99). Both of my dogs enjoyed this heart-shaped, cookie-like treat.
Mouse Pad ($12.99). The item for pet parents this month was a mouse pad with a paw print design. While it was cute, I have no need for a mouse pad, so felt “meh” about this.
Next up, the November 2016 Rescue Box, which is Christmas themed.
Everything in my November Rescue Box!
The info card of the November box. November has a Christmas Theme.
Winter Snowflake Treats in Vanilla Snowflake Flavor ($8.99). These treats are made primarily with “pumpkin granola” (oats, barley, brown rice, pumpkin, honey). My dog who eats everything liked these; the other dog sniffed but didn’t try them.
“I Ate Santa’s Cookies” Santa Hat ($7.99). As shown in the photos, this little Santa hat is absolutely ADORABLE! My little guy didn’t love wearing it, but he sure looked cute! I’ve bought doggie Santa hats over the years, but none were as perfect of a size as this one, nor as cute with the message. Absolutely love this doggie Santa hat!
Beef Lung Bits ($7.99). As I expected, these were a huge hit with both dogs.
Holiday Squeaktaculars ($14.99). Unsurprisingly, my toy-loving dog loves to pounce and chew on this multi-squeaker toy.
Deck the Tree with Paws Pin ($12.99). The pet parent item of the month for December is a decorative Christmas tree pin with colorful crystals and cascading paw prints. I usually don’t wear anything like this, but may wear it as an easy alternative to an ugly sweater for some upcoming doggie holiday parties.
I am pleased with Rescue Box’s dog toy and treat offerings for the 2016 Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays. The stuffed turkey and doggie Santa hat are absolutely adorable, and I haven’t seen anything similar in local stores. As usual, the pet parent items weren’t of particular interest to me. I wish RescueBox would offer the option to substitute another dog toy or treat in place of the pet parent item.
Happy Thanksgiving from the two cutest dogs in NYC!
