NYC ACC Holiday Pet Supply Drive

Help the holidays be warmer and brighter this season for animals in need! 

In addition to canned pet food, the New York City Animal Care & Control  is accepting litter, toys, blankets and beds (and of course, they're not going to say no to a check). 

So, as you wrap gifts for your pets this holiday, we at Barkzilla kindly ask you not to forget the animals that are waiting to find a family of their own. Whether you are able to participate in the ACC's Pet Supply Drive, or get involved with a local animal organization-- we're sure your gift will make the holidays special for some very deserving furry folks.

Visit the ACC's website to find out donation location specifics and other ways you can help.

Hot Guys + Baby Animals = Best Gift Ever

Seriously, what better way to ring in 2011 than with hot guys and baby animals? The folks behind the Hot Guys and Baby Animals 2011 Calendar have paired adorable, adoptable baby animals... and well, hot guys, to help raise money for the SF SPCA and other animal charities like the Bunny World Foundation and Forever Pet Rescue. Possibly the best combination ever since peanut butter and chocolate.

Each calendar is printed on 50% post-consumer recycled paper, and can be purchased directly from

Rain Rain, Go Away!

Just when we thought it was safe to put away the rain boots… 

No joke, Sunday was like NYC Rainpocalypse all over again, which meant no playing outside for Paddy. Even though she hates booties, I think she secretly wishes for a pair of yellow galoshes à la the pooch on this adorable note card from Anthropologie. For real. Seriously, this is going up on our wall as a piece of fashion inspiration.

We spotted these cards over at Design Sponge on their Holiday 2010 Gift List for Pet Lovers-- if you have time, head on over and check out their other picks!

P.S. Oh, and you can also grab a set of these cards at Anthropologie - $18 for a pack of eight (2 of each of the 4 designs)!

Martha Stewart Chicken Coop in Action!

We recently swung by the newly opened NoHo Petsmart in NYC and were delighted to discover the full-range of Martha Stewart pet products in stock. Since Paddy had been such a good girl of late, we picked up the Martha Stewart Chicken Coop (which we had previously blogged about) as an early holiday present. Much to our pleasant surprise, it is as cute in-person as we had hoped! The house actually has crinkly material sewn into it which immediately caught Paddy's attention. 

Though we stuffed the Chicken Coop with the three cute little chickies it came with, Paddy had a tough time getting them loose-- and fearing the destruction of the barn-- we freed one for her. 

Big mistake. Sadly, the baby chick you see here was destroyed in less than five minutes (oh the horror), which leads us to believe that the Martha Stewart Chicken Coop was definitely not designed with fierce chewers in mind... in fact, we better go that squeaker from our Canine Tester.... 

Possibly a better pick for a pooch that plays more gently with their toys, we still dig the Chicken Coop and plan on stuffing it with other toys or treats in the future. Definitely a cute new puppy present or item for under the tree!

Pick up your Martha Stewart Chicken Coop from PetSmart for $14.99.

#ThursdayBling / @Juicy_Couture

It's Thursday, which means it's time for #ThursdayBling!

There's not much to say about this awesome piece of Fido-fancyness except:

1) It's for your dog 
2) It's from Juicy Couture 
3) What doggy wardrobe would be complete without it?

Pylones Bubbles Soap Dispenser

While skulking around SoHo for holiday gifts, we spied these colorful soap dispensers on the shelves at Pylones! We didn't see these online yet (they're available online in Europe), so stop by your local Pylones retailer or contact customer service for details.  Maybe they're officially a January launch? Apologies for the lack of info, but they were just too cute not to share!

Tanzanite #ThursdayBling!

This may come as a surprise, but is kind of hard to find tasteful dog bling...

While diamonds ARE a dog's best friend, sometimes it's nice to change it up a bit-- which is why this week's #ThursdayBling accessory features Tanzanite! This pretty blueish/purple stone is understated enough to be classy enough for every day wear, but also flashy enough for those more glam occasions. With four rows of Swarovski stones, it's definitely blinged out enough for the Barkistas!

Pick up yours at The Gilded Paw.
