RescueBox Dog Subscription Box Review – February 2017
Rescue Box is a subscription box for dogs or cats. For dogs, choose from small (up to 20 pounds), medium (20-50 pounds), and large (50+ pounds). They are associated with Greater Good (the folks who brought you The Hunger Site, The Animal Rescue Site, and more) and your purchase of a subscription will help provide food and vaccines to shelter pets!
My Subscription Addiction paid for this box. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)
This review is of the Large Dog, $29.95 a month, box. For reference, my dog Nyx is an 84-pound Rottweiler.

Included was an information card about the items in the box and more information on Rescue Box’s charity efforts. There was also a card this month highlighting a monthly theme.
St. Pat’s Beer Mug by Preppy Puppy – Listed Value $6.99
Preppy Puppy is a wholesale supplier so I used the value from the information card. All their treats are made in the U.S. and are free of wheat, corn, and soy. (For the record, this was carefully wrapped in bubble wrap and was not loose in the box.) This looks good enough for ME to eat…
Rib Roller by Jones Natural Chews – Value $3.99
These are beef ribs with pork skin wrapped around them. They are made in the USA, as well. Although the item description at various websites says these are good for small-to-medium dogs, they are actually fairly large. Of course, please be sure to supervise your dog with any chew of this sort.
FireBiterz by Outward Hound – Value $12.99
The base of these is fire hose material and it is pretty durable, although you can’t assume anything will be completely safe with Nyx. In fact, she has put holes in toys from this product line before. However, this one held up pretty well last night. A three-squeaker version is also available!
Zuke’s PureNZ Cuts in Beef with Green Lipped Mussel (5 oz) – Value $7.19
Treats and food from New Zealand are super expensive (Mr. Kitty eats lamb/rabbit food from NZ). But they are also really high quality. These are grain free and the only animal protein sources are beef and green lipped mussel, so if your dog is sensitive to chicken or pork or something, these could work for you.
Brew Sticks by Brew Buddies (6 oz) – Value $5.96
These are from Omega Paw, the same company responsible for the Meowjito and Meowgarita cat treats. (For what it’s worth, not ALL of their products are alcohol inspired. In this case, these have malted barley. Just don’t give actual beer to dogs; hops are toxic to dogs.) These also have poultry and rice ingredients, so they are probably not the best for dogs with food allergies or intolerances. These treats are made in the USA.
Here is Nyx, enjoying the toy.
Verdict: I calculated a value of $37.12 for February’s Rescue Box. That is above the month-to-month cost of the subscription. This month was kind of treat-heavy; other months have more of a mix of items. If you have a relatively healthy dog with no food allergies/sensitivities, this could be a fun box for you, and the value is nearly always there. If your dog has some food issues, you may want to look elsewhere, though.
What do you think of the February 2017 Rescue Box dog subscription box? Do you subscribe to any dog or cat boxes?
