Blanket ID tagOkay everyone — it’s a BIG post today for a BIG announcement! I am over the moon ecstatic to present an exciting new collaboration between the fantastic folks at Blanket ID and Pawsh!

A few months ago Blanket ID created a new line of their amazing tags called Donation by Design where designers create their own tag and $5 of every sale goes to the designer’s charity of choice.  (Pretty awesome, right?)

So the story: One day Rory and I received an invitation to design a pretty BlanketID tag which sent us both dancing around our apartment with glee! Today we are pleased to unveil the dotty results — a special Pawsh Donation by Design tag!

A quick recap: Blanket ID isn’t just a tag… report your pet missing and automatically sends a broadcast email to local SPCA, animal hospitals, shelters, rescues and other local blanket ID members. The email links to your online information so that everybody has 24/7 access to a full description and photos to help identify your missing pet.

At any time of day or night, the finder simply needs to enter the blanket ID tag number at to gain immediate access to all of the information they need to contact you and care for and safely return your pet.

If your pet is reported found via a smartphone you can receive a GPS map of that location and driving directions.

Your blanket ID tag is possibly the only tag you’ll ever need to buy – if you move or change your details, you can simply change them at You will never need to change your tag.

option-1 copy-550-aFor those of you who may not already know, I adore polka dots for their playful chic nature and timeless charm. I wanted Pawsh’s tag to be modern, playful and bursting with all sorts of bright colours so that there would be a shade for every dog or cat imaginable. tags copyThe result is this bubbly little tag, available in two sizes! The slogan “I’m a Pawsh Pet” was inspired by the pets who in turn inspired Pawsh’s mission — to celebrate a life lived well with furry loved ones. For the pets who teach us to live in the moment, for the pets who bring nothing but joy to the world, for the pets who give nothing but love and adore a little bit of practical style for themselves, this tag is dedicated to their magnificent example.

The charity that Pawsh’s Donation by Design tag will be attached to is The Ottawa Humane Society — an organization that not only works tirelessly to home pets in need, but also offers extensive community programming to educate the public about proper pet care.

For the whole month of May every tag purchased will automatically receive an EXTRA TWO YEARS membership after the tag is activated. That means a tag + a membership value of $46.98 for ONLY $24.99 AND $5 from each purchase will still be donated to the Ottawa Humane Society.

And because exciting new is meant to be shared Pawsh and Blanket ID are giving away one of these new tags to one lucky reader!
