Ruby Loves #MountainArtwear

This post is sponsored by The Mountain® and the BlogPaws Professional Pet Blogger network. I am being compensated for helping promote the Russo Rescue Collection, but The Daily Pip only shares information we feel is relevant to our readers. The Mountain is not responsible for the content of this article.

It’s no secret that I support and advocate for rescue and adoption. I believe in second chances for ALL animals, especially older and special needs animals. All of our animals (a rabbit, three cats, and a dog) are rescues.  We are a rescue family – committed to compassion, rehabilitation, and second chances. And so when I heard about The Mountain’s® new Russo Rescue Collection, I knew I had to join this campaign.

If you haven’t checked out Mountain Artwear, you should. Spend a few minutes on their site and their love of animals is obvious. All of their t-shirts are unique, modern, fabulous and designed to amp your aura and express your passions. Additionally, all Mountain Artwear is made in America using environmentally friendly practices.

The Russo Rescue Collection is extra special because a portion of every sale goes to Best Friends Animal Society. As the largest no-kill sanctuary in the country, Best Friends is the leader and heart of the no-kill movement, rescuing and rehabilitating thousands of animals every year including some of the most abused, difficult to place animals – animals even other no-kill shelters are unable or unwilling to take.

Dean Russo t-shirts not only save animals but they also look super cool and are based on original paintings. These memorable images are created with a minimum of ten mediums per painting including pastels, inks, oils, pencils, wax, charcoal, and spray paint.  According to his website “Dean strives to communicate a message that encourages people to choose adoption, to acknowledge the world-wide failure of breed specific legislation and to combat dog fighting.” By purchasing one or more of these fabulous, beautifully designed shirts, you will be helping accomplish these goals and more.

Order a Dean Russo t-shirt today and take advantage of 25% OFF with the code MTNPETS. Stay current on The Mountain’s latest designs by following them on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.

One lucky reader will also win 12 months of The Mountain Artwear T-shirts for up to five members of their family! Enter below for a chance to win this super amazing prize!
