Disclosure: I was paid by Thermotex for this post

One of the best things I ever did in my life was when we walked into the Calgary Humane Society and walked out with our cat Mindy. There’s something amazing about adopting a rescue cat and she likes to remind me of that every day!

Today is National Pet Day, which celebrates rescue animals and the shelters that connect us to the animals who are looking for their fur-ever home!  Did you know that overall, there were more than 82,000 cats and 35,000 dogs taken into Canadian shelters in 2016!

To celebrate, this morning I was on Breakfast Television talking about some amazing products made by local entrepreneurs that will help you pamper your pet like never before. You can check out the segment above.

One of those products is the  Thermotex heated pet bed, which Mindy has basically lived in since the day we got it for her last year. These things are incredible. Mindy is still young, but for older cats, the pet beds help relieve the stress of pain and soreness that often make cats feel uncomfortable!

And in honour of National Pet Day, Thermotex is doing something really special.  If you go to their website and buy a bed, enter the promo code ‘CALGARYHUMANE10’ and you’ll receive 10% off a pet bed and 10% of your purchase will go towards the Calgary Humane Society. Talk about a win/win situation!

The other products we talked about on the segment included bow-ties and treats from BarkYYC and all natural specialty products like Dry Shampoo, Shampoo Bars, Refresh Sprays, Aropawtherapy and Snuffle Mats from Hubert’s Canine Specialty Products!

So how are you going to treat your pet?
