To highlight Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we're bringing you some household items that benefit different breast cancer research and awareness charities in our Rethinking Pink posts. And since I know there are a lot of pet lovers out there, I thought I'd bring you some fun pet toys today.
The Planet Dog Pink Ribbon Ringo Toy ($9.99) is a tough dog toy that will stand up to Fido's tough love chewing. Since my dog only fetches in water, so I'll be using one of these along the shore. For a fuzzier and squeakier toy, try the Pink Ribbon Buddy ($15.99). For each toy sold, at least $0.75 will be donated to the Komen Foundation with a minimum guaranteed donation of $10,000.
On Planet Dog's website, they write that "All of us at Planet Dog want to help find a cure for breast cancer. To do that, we developed two great Pink Ribbon Toys—the Pink Ribbon Ringo and the Pink Ribbon Buddy. These special toys were designed with the signature pink ribbon in mind. The red of our Pink Ribbon Toys signifies heart. The pink 'ribbon' signifies not only breast cancer awareness, but hope, determination and support."
