Spring has sprung at Animal Snackers Bakery at the 2nd Street Market! Animal Snackers has a rotating menu of over 70 gourmet pet cookie recipes, and approximately 40 different types of cookies are available at any given time. The homemade cookies are made with all-natural ingredients (and lots of love!) by dedicated volunteers. The cookies contain no preservatives (keep them in the refrigerator!) and are shaped like butterflies, fish, clovers, squirrels, sea shells, ostriches and other fun shapes. Vegetarian cookies are available for the herbivore set; the bunnies at this author’s house fancy the Rotti Biscotti (very hard and crunchy) and the Sesame Snackers.
For the kitties, there are fresh treats made with tuna, chicken and cheese; these should be kept in the freezer (they quickly thaw for prompt snacking by your pet).
A wonderful assortment of colorful, pet-safe stuffed animals is on hand (these are suitable for human kids as well) and some have sound effects! Single house rabbits often enjoy the company of a stuffed companion to groom.
Did you know that Animal Snackers carries handmade greeting cards for a variety of occasions? Take a look at a couple of the designs in the slideshow.
Pet toys from the simple to the elaborate can be found at Animal Snackers. A springy, plush-covered bee is available for pouncing and claw-sharpening by your favorite cat; simple miniature coiled toys are fun for cats and bunnies alike. Catnip toys are made by hand in a variety of shapes by that dedicated corps of volunteers; also available are cat toys that make fun crinkly sounds, balls with bells inside and colorful miniature ‘springs’. Kong toys, collars, leashes and handmade bandannas are there for the dogs.
Stop by Animal Snackers and take home a toy or treat for your pet! Proceeds from the sales of merchandise at Animal Sackers go to the animals living at the Humane Society of Greater Dayton.
Animal Snackers is open during Market hours, Thursdays and Fridays from 11 to 3 and Saturdays from 8 to 3.
