Spread Love with Earth Rated

Everyone loves a snuggle – but no one appreciates them quite as much as a shelter dog.

As a team that includes former shelter workers and many rescued dogs, we know first-hand just how much goes into giving dogs a second chance at life.

We’re always looking for ways to give back to the people who devote their time to helping dogs in the shelter system. That’s why we designed fleece blankets to spread the love!

Blankets are soft, warm, and make the perfect spot for pups to cozy up in while they wait for their forever homes. They can make a huge impact on a dog’s day to day life and even improve their chances of being adopted.

Just like us, dogs aren’t at their best when they feel exhausted or stressed out. And it’s not always easy to relax in a busy and unfamiliar environment. Cuddling up in a blanket can help dogs feel safe and comfortable, no matter what’s going on.

What makes Earth Rated blankets so great?

•  Made of super soft fleece

•  Extra-large so nobody needs to curl up too tight to fit

•  Easy to wash and dry (a huge plus in a busy shelter environment)

Our blankets have also become beautiful props for shelters taking professional-grade photos of their dogs, which greatly increases the chances of adoption.

Since 2016, we’ve donated 8,160 blankets to rescue groups across North America. This year, we’re spreading the love again, with a little help from you.

It’s simple: know a great shelter? Nominate them! 


How to nominate your rescue group:

From April 30th to May 7th, nominate the rescue or shelter closest to your heart here and tell us why they’re wonderful.

After the contest closes, we will send out blankets to as many shelters as we can. The 100 winning organizations will each receive a case of our fleece blankets to use as they wish – in kennels, during transport, in foster homes or to help provide some privacy for nursing mothers. Check back to our Instagram or Facebook pages where we will announce the winners!

As a special thank you for looking out for your community, we’re also giving YOU the opportunity to win an individual blanket of your very own!



How to enter to win your own Earth Rated blanket:

After nominating a shelter or rescue here, tag us in a photo of your rescued dog on Instagram using the hashtag #EarthRatedSpreadLove.

Tell us what makes them great and you could win an Earth Rated blanket for your dog to snuggle with to their heart’s content.
