For many families, one special member may come with a fur coat. WHNT NEWS 19 did some sniffing around to find a way you can give your pet a present every month at a cost of $30 or less.
They're similar to the boxes you can purchase on a monthly basis to sample all things beauty, but these subscription boxes provide beauty of a different kind to your furry friend.
WHNT NEWS 19 found a list of several choices at FantabulouslyFrugal.com and picked out a few that seem to be the cat's meow. Simply put, these boxes are an affordable way to introduce new toys, treats, food, and grooming items to your dog or cat.
PetsLoveToys sets prices starting at $14.95 a month for a selection of new toys for your furry best friend. Shipping is free.
Another company -- Bugsy's Box -- will send a box every month for as low as $19 a month packed with 5 to 7 treats, toys, accessories, or other items. This one is for dogs only. Shipping is free.
Barkbox costs as much as $29 a month. It comes with toys, treats, and other items for dogs, based on your dog`s size. Shipping is free.
And then there's the one with a name that says it all: Spoiled Rotten box.
For $19.99 to $24.99 a month, plus $4.95 in shipping, you can order a box for a dog or cat stuffed with $40 worth of goodies. This company promises every edible product is made in the USA and all products are made by premium companies that love your pet as much as you do.
Furthermore, some of the distributors --- such as Barkbox -- donate a portion of the proceeds to animal advocacy organizations.
