RescueBox “Hello Summer” July 2018 Review
This box is pretty reliably holiday-themed in months where there is a major holiday occurring, but they opted for a non-holiday theme this month:
This month, we were back to having a physical information card. It always shows a story of an animal helped by Rescue Box charity efforts on one side and gives a list of items in the box on the other side.
A few years ago, a lot of these were going around in dog subscription boxes, but I haven’t seen one for a while. At any rate, Nyx is a big, black dog who doesn’t like the heat. We don’t walk far due to some ligament issues in her knees (she’s fine as long as she doesn’t overuse her legs) but the heat still gets to her. It is in the 90s almost every day here! This thing is really weird, it even felt cool to the touch right after I took it out of the bag. So I guess I would say it works, and we will use it after walks on hot days.
These are free of wheat, corn, and soy, and the only preservatives are natural (i.e., vitamin E, rosemary extract). They are made in the USA, too. They are soft(ish) and can be broken into smaller chunks for smaller dogs, but a treat this size is suitable for a large breed dog (and safe, as they are a composite material rather than being a jerky- or hide-style chew).
Bacon Toy by Cash and Coop – Listed Value $12.99
This is a plush-style toy with crinkle material inside and no squeaker. It is still a little bit loud because of the crinkles (Nyx was really going after it, trying to find a squeaker, because that’s what she does). It seems pretty sturdy. I don’t know if it’s because “Cash and Coop” is a name with common words or because this brand doesn’t have an online presence, but I had to use the value from the information card because I can’t find this online anywhere.
Watermelon Toy by Cash and Coop – Listed Value $12.99
Here is another toy from the same brand. I am cool with getting two toys from the same brand if they are durable, which these seem to be, especially for plushes. This is also a crinkle toy with no squeaker. I think the little seed in the pocket is particularly cute, although I did remove this before giving to Nyx, as she would just eat it.
Rescue Box Venison Mini Sticks – Retail Value $7
We have received this treat once before in Rescue Box, but it was a long time ago. I don’t even mind getting it again because it doesn’t seem to aggravate Nyx’s IBD in small quantities (it does have some rice flour in it). She was very excited to get one of these, as you can see below.
Here are some pictures of Nyx with the watermelon toy, and a bonus of her anticipating one of the venison sticks.
Verdict: I calculated a value of $49.73 for July’s Rescue Box; I had to use a few values from the information card, but not many. At any rate, that is about $20 over the cost of the box, which is pretty good, especially when there is a treat Nyx can have. The toys seemed durable, too.
