RescueBox Dog Subscription Box Review – April 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 86-pound Rottweiler.

Included was an information card with more information about the items in the box and more information on The Rescue Box’s charity efforts. There was also a card this month highlighting a monthly theme.
Pet n’ Shape Large Rib Bone – Value $6.27
This is quite large (you can buy smaller ones for smaller dogs). It kind of grosses me out, but then I am not the intended consumer. These are made and sourced in the USA, which is so important when it comes to dog treats and chews.
Barkworthies Beef Hamburger – Value $1.04 (buy a pack of 30 for $31.29)
These are made from free-range, grass-fed beef and contain no sugar or preservatives. These are grain free and are marketed as an alternative to rawhides, plus they are meant to be fully digestible.
Ruffdawg Ruffbone in Medium, Grilled Steak Flavor – Value $5.99 (MSRP $8.99)
Nyx thought this was pretty great and it didn’t aggravate her IBD, which is so important. However, it also didn’t last very long. She damaged this to the point I had to take it away from her within about two minutes. So if you have a heavy chewer, or really for any dog, please supervise carefully – these are not intended to be digestible.
Pridebites Mailman – Value $9.99
These have a foam core and are supposed to float. Nyx hates the water (and I don’t want her swimming in the creek behind our house anyway) so I can’t test the floating aspect. Nyx did enjoy it as a chew toy, though, and it is actually still intact, which is kind of unbelievable.
PetGreens Li’l Treats (chicken flavor, 6 oz) – Value $7.99
These are semi-moist treats in a pretty small size. They’d work for small dogs or as training treats for larger dogs. They are free of wheat, corn, soy, and artificial dyes and flavors (they do contain wheat grass but the grass part of wheat is gluten free). These are made in the USA.
Here are some pictures of Nyx with the toys from this month. The mailman will live to see another day but the red bone didn’t hold up well.
Verdict: I calculated a value of $31.28 for April’s Rescue Box. That is a little bit above the cost of the box plus shipping. It’s a bit low for this box; most months are somewhat higher – but it’s not a bad value at all for a subscription consisting of current merchandise from outside suppliers and companies! I thought the mix of items was pretty good, with some toys, some treats, and some chews. I do wish the bone toy had been more durable, but other than that, I thought it was, overall, a decent month for Rescue Box.
What do you think of the April 2017 Rescue Box dog subscription box? Do you subscribe to any dog or cat boxes?
