Wine to the Pet Rescue!

The holiday’s are quickly approaching and I am always on the look out for unique, gifty ideas that also give back to animal charities. I tracked down the ideal adult holiday gift just about any dog dog lover would appreciate. Hand over a bottle of Chateau La Paws Chardonnay to a dog rescue advocate/party hostess and the conversation will start flowing like wine!

This brand is dedicated to funding no-kill shelters and spreading the adoption message through their cash donations and packaging. The labels feature a rotating cast of 28 different shelter dogs with stories of a few also on their web site.

“In 2015 Chateau La Paws™ & Diageo Chateau & Estates are donating $100,000 to North Shore Animal League America to help fund the great work that they do to rescue, nurture, and adopt as many dogs as possible.” says their “Our Cause” page.

North Shore Animal League is extra special to the PupStyle crew because our current CEO, Mr. Oliver was for former resident. North Shore Animal League rescued Oliver from a puppy mill down south and gave him amazing medical care until I adopted him.

Of course, I can’t fully recommend a fine wine without sampling it myself, so I paired a bottle of their Sauvignon Blanc with brie, sough dough crusty bread and red organic grapes. It was delicious! It has gentle fruit flavors of pineapple, kumquat and peach blossom creating a nice balance between sweet and savory.

A 750 ML bottle will only set you back $12.99 and you’ll feel extra good as you toast to the new year while helping shelter pets. Cheers PupStylers!!

Regardless of what makes your dog a unique character, it’s worth sharing with the rest of the world to put a smile on someone’s face today.
