Polkadog and Tall Tails Team Up for Epic Holiday Surprise

Last month, Polkadog and Tall Tails joined forces for an incredible Buy One Give One blanket initiative that directly benefited local rescue dogs.

As part of this initiative, Tall Tails pledged to donate one blanket to the shelter of Polkadog's choice for every blanket purchased at a Polkadog Bakery store or on their website throughout November. At the end of the month, they were able to bring 100 blankets to the Worcester Animal Rescue League in Worcester, MA!

To add an extra surprise for the shelter pups, they transformed the room into a playful wonderland, filled with an assortment of Tall Tails toys and mouthwatering Polkadog treats. Each dog was brought out individually, allowing them to choose their very own Christmas gift. Some of the pups selected squeak toys, while others opted for durable toys, and a few couldn't resist diving straight into their favorite bag of treats.

"We love working with like-minded brands within the industry, so when Tall Tails reached out to partner on their blanket initiative, we were ecstatic! There's no greater feeling than seeing people come together for a great cause and being able to give back to the community, especially around the holidays. It was a day I'll never forget!" Kelsey Sora, Director of Marketing, Polkadog

Tall Tails and Polkadog encourage everyone to make a difference for your local animal shelter this holiday season. Giving back doesn't have to be limited to monetary contributions - even small gestures have a big impact. You can donate gently used towels, blankets, and toys, offer to walk dogs, volunteer for laundry or dishwashing duties, or simply share an adoptable pet on your social media. Every action counts and can truly change the lives of shelter animals and staff.

“Tall Tails would like to thank Polkadog’s customers for their purchase of a Tall Tails bed or blanket leading to a blanket being donated to the Worcester Animal Rescue League. Together, we were able to provide warmth and comfort to over a hundred cats and dogs in the shelter. The charitable partnership between Tall Tails & Polkadog is what makes the independent pet specialty industry special.” – George Barton, Director of Marketing, Tall Tails
