Sleeps with Dogs
This winter, Morton Salt is making a pledge to keep pets safe, and you can help. 

As a dog-ma born and raised in Buffalo,  New York, I am familiar with the importance of a pet safe ice melt. In fact, I sure could've used it in Atlanta last winter after an ice storm socked the heart of the south for a solid week. I was forced to use eco-friendly kitty litter and while it somewhat helped the SWD household members gain some traction, Morton Safe T Pet would've really helped us all stay upright - which this clumsy dog-ma desperately needed - not to mention the nine wacky dogs of all sizes.

Now onto the pawsome stuff - how we all can help animals: 

Morton is pledging to help pets this winter. For every unique *like* on the Morton Facebook page  from now until January 31, 2012, Morton will donate $1 to the ASPCA® (American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals®) to increase winter pet safety awareness and support their mission to protect animals.

Please go to Morton's  Facebook page and click the *like* button and that's a buck Morton will donate. Let them know Sleeps with Dogs sent you.  

Also, please *like* our post located on the Morton Facebook page. Simply go to the page, find our post and *like* it. For every 50 *likes* Morton will send us a Morton Safe-T-Pet Winter Kit (limit two per blog) and we are going to pay-it-forward by sending it to a randomly selected SWD'er.

So like is the word of the day. Let's help some animals y'all! Tell all your friends and family to do the same. The more *likes* we generate, the more money Morton donates. It's just that simple.  

Morton is  also helping the ASPCA to raise awareness about winter pet safety by sponsoring “National Keep Pets Safe in Winter Day” on December 22, 2011.

Share the spirit by doing your part to keep pets safe by following the tips below and sharing them with your friends and family today.
  • Use pet-friendly (salt free and chloride free) ice melters such as Morton Safe-T-Pet.
  • Keep pets on a leash, especially dogs, which can become disoriented or lost when familiar surroundings are covered in ice and snow.
  • Make sure pets are wearing identification tags and proper outerwear as needed at all times.
  • Limit outdoor time for pets when temperatures drop below freezing.
  • Checking warm spots on cars, such as hoods, where animals might seek shelter from the cold.

BTW, don't decide against pet-safe ice melt because of price. Last year Jen shopped at a pet store and they had this stuff priced at 4 times the price that Wal-mart did. Thank goodness for iPhone apps!
