    Dog & Cat Days of Summer 2016

    Awww, what fun!

    On Saturday September 3rd, a handful of lovable pets, and their amazing family members descended on Great Plains SPCA’s Merriam shelter for this year’s Dog & Cat Days of Summer event! A great time was had by all, and donations were raised to help support Great Plains’s mission of saving the lives of homeless animals in Kansas City! Thank you for your generous donations!

    I’d like to take a minute to specifically offer a huge heartfelt thanks to all the clients who participated, and the companies who partnered with Melissa McGee Photography for the event. Without every single one of you, the event would not nearly have been as successful-or as much fun! I enjoyed meeting each of you, playing with your furry family members, and getting to know you all a bit! When it is easy to get discouraged by all the ways humans are cruel to animals, it is YOU who lift my heart, and show me that there are so many people out there loving animals to the moon and back! That just makes my heart soar!

    If you participated in any way with Dog & Cat Days of Summer, feel free to leave a comment or brag about your pet below, or leave a review on the Facebook page-I’d love to hear about your experience!

    Without further ado, I can’t wait to share some of the resulting images with you! Enjoy!

        Beer Paws – Dog & Cat Days of Summer 2016 Partner

        Who’s your drinking buddy?

        For many of us, one of our best drinking buddies is a furry family member!

        Well, have you heard of Beer Paws? Beer paws is a local Kansas City company who is dedicated to celebrating the relationship we beer drinkers have with our dogs. We are so excited to partner with them for Dog & Cat Days of Summer 2016!

        Beer Paws’ Owner, Crystal, sums it up like this:

        “We make your dog a better drinking buddy. Dogs and beer actually have quite a lot in common. Both have enhanced the human experience for thousands of years; each comes in many different strengths and colors. And everybody has a favorite!
        If you have a dog and you like beer, chances are good that your dog is one of your best drinking buddies. If you’re excited, he’s excited. If you take him to a party, you’re suddenly the most popular person there. And if it’s a night when you have tears in your beer, well, the dog won’t judge you for that.
        Our products incorporate the best tastes of delicious beer and barley flavoring into our dog beer and biscuit treats and you can feel good about knowing exactly what your dog is snacking on.”

        They partner with around 27 different breweries, all throughout the Midwest, using recycled barley grain to create their products. Check out their Beer Biscuit Peanut Butter Treats and Doggy Beer.

        We love their idea to freeze the Doggy Beer in ice cube trays for a refreshing treat for your pups!

        Beer Paws offers so many creative products: dog collars and dog apparel, bracelets and apparel for humans, upcycled beer can candles, bottle openers, and so much more!
