Check out my review of the June 2017 Rescue Box!

RescueBox 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.

Heavenly Hounds Peanut Butter Relaxation Square2 oz. - Value $3.99

This treat is supposed to help with fear or anxiety.  That is actually a really good thing to send before the 4th of July (where I live, it is mid/late June, and you can already hear firecrackers outside). The square contains passion flower and valerian, which are supposed to be calming. Unfortunately, it also has wheat and barley flour so Nyx can’t have it, but I have a lot of neighbors with dogs, so it will be easy to find someone who will appreciate it.

Chasing Our Tails Pig Snout - Value $2.21 (Buy a 2 pack for $4.41 on Chewy.com)

These are single ingredient treats made and sourced in the USA.  They are smoked and smell a little through the plastic–the cats were very interested. Watch your dog carefully with these until you are sure of how they will respond. (Some dogs tend to try to bolt such items.)

Apple Pie Bark Bars, 4 oz. - Value $2.48?

I can’t find this flavor available for sale (the manufacturer doesn’t do e-commerce on their own site) so I estimated the price based on Amazon listings of a similar product from the Bark Bars brand. These are made in the USA and are free of preservatives, artificial colors, and artificial flavors.  If they are too big for your dog, they are easy to break into smaller pieces.

Booda 2-Knot Rope Bone, Size XL– Value $8.60

There are so many variations on this toy that it is hard to find the exact same item, but the one I linked to is the same size and brand and also has two knots. Nyx loves rope toys. This is a bit too short to play tug with, but she is pretty happy just to chew on it, so it works.

Bullibone in Bacon, Size XL - Value $11.99

Nyx had one of these before and loved it. She was also happy to get this one. Plus, it is size-appropriate and durable, both of which are important. The dog is supposed to hold the narrow part with his/her paws and chew the top. Nyx got that a little backward this time (she’s done it right in the past), and chewed the bottom instead, but it held up well.

Verdict: I calculated a value of about $29.00 for June’s RescueBox. That’s a little above the cost of the box on a month-to-month basis. I’m especially happy with the toys this month, since both were durable and appropriate to give to Nyx. Plus, I like knowing that a portion of my purchase goes to help rescue dogs and cats.

RescueBox is currently running a “Golden Paw” Sweepstakes. In this sweepstakes, three people (one each in July, August, and September) will win a one-year free subscription to RescueBox. Current subscribers are automatically entered, or you can sign up for a subscription on their site (starting June 1, so this is now ongoing) to be entered. Click here for more details.

Ragan stumbled across My Subscription Addiction in late 2013 and immediately subscribed to way too many beauty boxes. She's now focused on boxes for her cats and dog, vegan/vegetarian food boxes, and craft subscriptions (and she didn't give up beauty boxes entirely).

If you’re interested in mentioning associated sweepstakes, Ipsy currently has fifteen sweeps going, which expire on 6/28. They require membership in Ipsy, and Instagram.

Glossybox usually has one per week, called Fan Friday giveaway. It doesn’t seem to require that you be a subscriber.

Rescue Box specifically contacted us about this one, although there was also the card in the box.

I won the Glossybox Fan Friday giveaway once in maybe December 2015? Bunch of Nails Inc. stuff. It was nice, actually. No, earlier than that, I still lived in my condo. December 2014?

Could never stand ipsy giveaways. Too many social media requirements. My Twitter feed is not an appropriate place for such things, and I don’t do Instagram because I don’t have a smartphone. (Also I don’t subscribe to ipsy at this time.)
