So instead of just making a $50 donation in your friends’ name, you can give $50 to the ASPCA for two pet micro-chippings. Check out the full-range of inspiring gifts from hundreds of charities.

Support Animal Rescue and Shelter Shops
Shop for the love of pets at your neighborhood animal rescue and shelter shops this season. With proceeds supporting the animals in their care, it’s extra incentive to score these top picks for pups and their people. Here’s just a sampling of our finds.

Support Golden Gate Basset Hound Rescue with cozy fleece dog coats in a wide variety of fabrics. Adorable and adjustable, these sweet pup coats are as easy on the wallet as they are to take on and off.
