Doggie Eyeglass Holders and More Business-Boosters for May-June

These eyeglass holders capture the personalities of 20 dog breeds.




Sit, Stay, Hold

These eyeglass holders are perfect for pet parents. From PAWS N CLAWS EYEWEAR and OPTIPETS, they capture the personalities of 20 dog breeds (from Boxer to Yorkie) and six cat characters. These handpainted stands hold eyeglasses in place on the bridge of the animal’s nose, combining cuteness with functionality.


Info in Hand

It also becomes part of a desktop experience when docked.

Moving Pictures

In Finding Shelter, award-winning photographer JESSE FREIDiN honors the relationship between volunteers and the animals they save. The hardcover book features 100 portraits with stories of once-homeless dogs and the humans who helped them. Proceeds benefit the 22 shelters across the country Freidin visited for this project.


Coffee With a Cause

With a name like GROUNDS & HOUNDS, it’s no surprise that the company donates 20 percent of proceeds to no-kill animal shelters. Serve your customers and sell this organic, fair-trade coffee with blend names such as Paper & Slippers, Morning Walk and Sit & Stay.

$9 for 6-ounce and $14 for 12-ounce
