Catch ‘em on the run!

 

The uFurbabies Pet Tracker is a lightweight GPS tracking device that securely fits onto your pet’s existing collar and is suitable for both cats and dogs.

Using GPS Satellite technology, the unit transmits the wearer’s location straight to your smartphone via an app. What’s more, you can set up geo-location safe areas (“Geo-fences”) such as your house and garden; if your fur baby leaves this area, you’ll be notified on the app and can then track them.

Early notification means that, because you’re notified immediately, you can track them “on the run”, thus drastically shortening the risk of them being in danger or disappearing forever. Without the uFurbabies GPS Pet Tracking unit, you’ll only be aware of your fur baby being missing on your return home, which could be too late.

If your fur baby is missing and you haven’t received an alert, all you need to do is phone the unit and trace the ringing to where they’re hiding (ideal for pets that like to play hide ‘n’ seek at vet visit time).

A true story about Tank

   

TANK is a book about the severe loss of losing your soulmate and how what we perceive that as the end, is actually not the end at all.

The book takes you on the journey of Tank the Bull Terrier and how, at the age of 20 months, he contracted a rare bacterial infection that attacked his heart. The book tells the story of how we fought to beat this infection and how we ultimately lost the fight. But the story doesn’t end there; it only begins there.

After Tank transitioned from the physical world, he would come back to me in the most incredible ways, and he gave me incredible signs that he still lives on. He would also present to us his apprentice, Thor. And just so we never doubted, he ensured that his and Thor’s birthdays were the same (two years apart, both 06 Feb).

The idea of what I wanted my Bull Terrier to look like before we ever even got Tank would later be realised in every possible way in Thor. Thor would later sit by my side as I wrote TANK, and I knew all too well that Tank was with me in every word written. If you’ve ever lost a pet, this book will show you how these beloved souls never really leave us.  

Selling for R150-00 (excluding postage and courier services). Adorabull Terrier Rescue and Rehabilitation hold stock of the book, and if purchased directly from them, 100% of the sale goes towards their much-needed funds for the dogs in their care.

Every single one is unique, although you can select from colour shades, including neutral, brights, florals, pinks or blues, browns, greens, etc. Delight in the surprise factor when yours arrives – no other will be made the same.

The BIG CAT YOUTH COLLECTION’s lions and lionesses are loved by adults and children and make gorgeous gifts for a new baby’s nursery too. They’ve already made their way all over the world and are spreading the message and love. Their new owners send a “selfie” for our HAPPY HOMINGS photo gallery album on the Facebook page to further share the love.

This latest project by Camps Bay High School students Drew Goldie and Sebastian Byrnes was created to raise awareness for the plight of big cats not only in South Africa but worldwide and, through it, raise funds for Emoya Sanctuary, Panthera Africa and Drakenstein Lion Park.
 
Each handmade big cat takes a while to complete, so we release a #ProudPride of 10 (made up of a mix of lions, lionesses and tigers) at the beginning of each month. Since launching the project in December 2018, it has become a great success with online adoptions happening monthly. For updates on adoptions you can follow their BIG CAT YOUTH COLLECTION Facebook page. View the launch video here.

Selling for R620-00 (excluding postage or courier costs). When adopting a handmade lion/lioness/tiger you can now choose which sanctuary you would like to support, and 50% of the profits will be donated to them by the BIG CAT YOUTH COLLECTION.

Gin genius

 

GINSMITH GINS were awarded gold medals at the 2018 Michelangelo International Wine and Spirits awards, underscoring the consistent premium quality of our gins. At Tygerkloof Distillery, home to GINSMITH gins, we handcraft our gins in the time-honoured, traditional way, using copper alembic stills over flame.

GINSMITH gins are “slow” gins and, from field to glass, are infused with our relationship with every aspect of the product. We hand-harvest botanicals from our immediate environment – kapok, mphepho, and buchu (which only grows naturally here and on the mountains surrounding us).

When we, of necessity, import botanicals, we endeavour to source them from our “emotional terroir”; places to which we have some emotional attachment, such as Tuscany, from where we import juniper berries and orris.

We live completely off the grid, powered by the sun, and use gravity-fed spring water from its source on our mountain. We’re surrounded by exquisite fynbos unique to the Cape floral kingdom, and also live in the company of a wide variety of birds and animals indigenous to the area – including the shy and elusive Cape Leopard. A couple of rare sightings of the leopard inspired us to name our farm Tygerkloof and to grace our GINSMITH bottles with its image.  

Selling for:

NAVY 57% R385-00 excluding courier cost
PINK R325-00 excluding courier cost
The STEPCHILD             R350-00 excluding courier cost

R10-00 on the sale of each bottle of GINSMITH will be donated to Cape Leopard Trust (https://www.facebook.com/capeleopard)

To order your GINSMITH, email colleen@ginsmith.co.za (reference Happy Tails), and for more information, visit www.ginsmith.co.za or follow us on instagram @ginsmithgin

Keeping kitty naturally pest-free

 

Spencers Anti-Insect Spot-On Drops for cats is a unique, premium-quality spot-on treatment specially formulated for cats. It provides a natural way of repelling ticks, fleas and other insects. This product contains high-quality essential oils of Neem, Geraniol, and Lavender in safe quantities. These oils are well known to have many properties, including repelling insects and improving general skin health.

These non-toxic oils are absorbed by the skin and hair of the pet and release a fantastic smell which forms a barrier, preventing insects from getting near the pet. Spencers Anti-Insect Spot-On Drops have been developed by veterinarians in a laboratory and are used worldwide.

Recommended selling price R180-00 (this may vary according to stockists). Spencers supports Megs Mutts, PlumPets Animal Shelter and Fallen Angels Pet Rescue.

To order your SPENCERS Natural Collars and drops, visit www.spencersnpp.co.za for our list of stockists or https://www.flipsnack.com/SpencersNaturalPetProducts/spencers-natural-pet-products.html for our online catalogue.


Pearly whites

 

ProDen PlaqueOff Animal is a natural way to care for your pet’s teeth. Made from a type of Scandinavian seaweed, the powder contains no chemicals, works systemically, and can be used for both dogs and cats.

Bacterial biofilm forming on teeth leads to decay; a compound naturally present in the seaweed is excreted via the saliva, working to break down this biofilm. It doesn’t change the pH balance or destroy good bacteria.

PlaqueOff is packed in a tub with a small scoop that you use to measure out the correct dosage – simply sprinkle it over your pet’s food. The mixture smells like the sea and tastes a little like salt and pepper; dogs and cats eat it quite readily, but finicky eaters will enjoy it more when mixed with a little brewer’s yeast. (When we tested it, our dog loved the taste and gobbled it straight from our hands.)

PlaqueOff Animal has an extremely happy fan base and many clean dog and cat smiles.

Selling for:

Small 40g R440-00

A happy tale

 

This beautifully illustrated children’s book celebrates a special bond between the family dog and a one-year-old child.

Based on the true, gripping story of Emma, a shy German Shepherd who scaled an electric fence to escape the vet and remained at large for five weeks. The story tells of her trauma and disorientation as she hid among the reeds of the Liesbeek River before finally being captured in a leopard trap, the jubilation of thousands of people who followed Emma’s extraordinary journey on social media as it unfolded, and Emma’s recuperation and joyous reunion with her favourite little person, Mikey.

This story will tug at the heartstrings of all animal lovers, young and old, and show how important it is to not give up on hope.

Kiddie’s corner

 

This wonderful children’s book (for ages 4 to 11 years) is a true-life adventure about the time a large toad came to live in the author’s home, specifically in our dog, Badger’s, drinking bowl. Tommy the Toad created havoc, mostly for dear Badger, then brought Tilly, his lady toad friend, to live with us as well.

The adorable full-colour book is printed on recycled paper (to help save the planet!), is fully illustrated and has a number of activity pages included.

“Do Dogs Like Ice Cream?” YES! YES! YES!

     

Cool Dogs Ice Cream is the ultimate treat for dogs and comes in three mouth-watering (to dogs) flavours – Blastin’ Biltong, Dazzlin’ Duck and Swishin’ Strawberry. Harder than ice cream for people, this is a long-lasting treat that dogs will love.

This delicious doggy indulgence was developed in close collaboration with a leading South African animal nutritionist. The recipe uses only premium A-Grade ingredients (suitable for human consumption), including the biltong. The duck breasts are free-range and de-skinned; we only use fresh strawberries, and the yoghurt only has 0.1% lactose.

Cool Dogs make it their mission to attend animal welfare events, and all the dogs up for adoption at the events receive a free ice cream. A percentage of the sales of Cool Dogs Ice Cream at these events is donated to the animal welfare organisation. We also donate ice creams to shelters.

Available at retailers, vets and vet shops. To find your nearest stockist, or for more information, visit www.cooldog.co.za

Pooch pool safety

   

Pet Pool Buddi was designed to assist pets to get out of the pool by themselves. Some swimming pool steps are too deep and smaller pets can’t stand on the step with their heads above the water. The Pet Pool Buddi is that step in between. The netting provides grip so that dogs can pull themselves out of the water and onto the step in order to exit the pool with ease.

With training, your pet will quickly learn where the Pet Pool Buddi is and swim towards it. Being safe has never been this easy.

Selling for R750-00 per unit (excluding R100-00 Postnet fees). All sales via Happy Tails Magazine will secure a R50-00 donation to SA Yorkie Rescue. (https://www.facebook.com.SAYorkieRescue/)

Survivors Rock!

       

These special edition t-shirts unite animal welfare supporters in support of those battling cancer, or in commemoration of those who have lost the fight, whether they’re human or furry friends.

Making learning fun

   

We were approached by the Board of Mdzananda Animal Clinic, who work in Khayalatisha, Cape Town, to develop an activity booklet for their education project. The result was an A5 story book/activity book for children aged 6 to 9 years old. Topics addressed were identified by the clinic. The cover is printed in full colour and the 32 inside pages are printed in black-and-white on photocopy paper, so that children can colour and write in it.
 
The story is about two children who find a puppy; they proceed, with a student, to the animal clinic. On their way, they encounter a number of people and situations. There’s an activity on almost every page for the children to complete before going further with the story.
 
Selling for R20-00 per book (postage/courier costs not included) and R10 goes to Mdzananda Animal Clinic. Books can be posted or you can collect from Kenilworth or Greenpoint, Cape Town.

Mad about mutts

       

After a hugely successful crowd funding campaign, Mutts the Book by award-winning photographer Emma O’Brien is finally here! Featuring portraits of one-of-a-kind rescue dogs and their inspirational stories, Mutts the Book is a coffee-table book for dog lovers everywhere.

Emma was inspired to create a book about mixed-breed shelter dogs after spending time at shelters and noticing that they’re full of gorgeous mutts which are often overlooked in favour of pedigree dogs. The book is a collection of exquisite photographs and stories that highlight the individuality of mixed-breed dogs, and their brilliant characters and cheeky quirks.

Emma says, “I hope that by putting this book together I can encourage more people to adopt rather than buy dogs, especially the mutts. You’ll see from the portraits just how unique mixed breed dogs are – no two look the same.”

Selling for R450-00 with the proceeds of the sales to be split 50/50 between Sandton SPCA and CLAW (Community Lead Animal Welfare), two charities that Emma is passionate about supporting.
