RescueBox Dog Subscription Box Review – September 2017
RescueBox is a monthly 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.
Lulubelles Slugger (red, large) – Value $13.99
This is a plush toy (with a squeaker, of course). It has reinforced fabric and actually was pretty durable. Nyx wanted to play tug with it and it held up quite well (you can see below how she acted with this toy). I can’t find this size for sale online in the US so I have linked to a wholesale site above and given their MSRP for the value. It seems reasonable for a large, durable dog toy.
JW Pet Company iSqueak Bouncin’ Baseball (large) – Value $4.29 on sale. Original price: $5.99
We have had many JW Pet Company rubber toys in the past and they are always durable. What I like about this one is it doesn’t have any feet, ears, horns, etc., so there aren’t little pieces Nyx can chew off. We have played some fetch with this one in the living room.
It is hard to find Butcher’s Block pet treats products for sale online but I am pretty sure the item I linked to is the same thing, or if not the same, very similar. This is all natural, 100% beef, and made in the USA.
Pawsitively Gourmet Baseball Ice Cream Cone Cookie (1 oz) – Listed Value $5.99
Pawsitively Gourmet doesn’t support e-commerce on their website, I think they are wholesalers, so I have used the value from the information card. You can tell from their site they have a cookie cutter shaped like an ice cream cone as they offer it decorated in several different ways. These do have wheat as the first ingredient, but they are free of corn and soy and animal proteins (other than a bit of yogurt), so they will work for dogs with a lot of different allergies.
SPOT Durafused Leather Baseball Tug – Value $7.33 on sale. Original price: $8.88
Nyx loves to play tug with toys so of course we are happy to receive one that is actually designed for that. We haven’t gotten to spend a lot of time with this one yet because I received five dog subscription boxes in the space of about two days, but I already know that she likes to chew on the handle more than the baseball. Isn’t that always how it works? (It is with Nyx, anyway.)
Here are some shots of Nyx with the bat toy. It actually survived all of this tugging. (Nyx REALLY likes tugging.)
Verdict: I calculated a value of $34.60 for September’s Rescue Box. That is almost five dollars over the cost of the box, which is okay. Everything was new and in good shape, the toys have been durable so far, and I thought they did a really good job of sticking to the baseball theme (which is also appropriate for this time of year).
