Gifts for Pets: Give Them What They Really Want!

Buying a gift for your furry best friend shouldn’t be any different than shopping for
your other loved ones. Keep in mind what they enjoy doing and if they have any
special preferences and shop accordingly. Remember, you’re buying the gift for them, not yourself.
As with people, the best gift you can give your pet is something that’s a special indulgence or something that brings them comfort. We think any of these gifts will set tails wagging and elicit purrs aplenty.
Canterbury Books and Gifts, located inside St. John’s Episcopal Church’s Mountain Avenue entrance, has a few special items for sale this holiday season with your furry best friend in mind.
All profits from the sale of these items will benefit all of St. John’s community outreach programs—such as the Community Youth Program, an after-school program for at-risk youth providing homework help for students in grades four through eight; and the Temporary Relief of Unexpected Emergencies program, a program that helps connect people in need of housing and utility assistance with the appropriate community resources.
