Dog Crate Mat Giveaway

Schnauzers Rule has teamed up with Sheree's Dog Rescue and Shortcut to Comfort to bring our readers and followers a chance to try out Linda's crate mat collection for FREE. Yes, you heard it right, FREE. We will be giving away 4 Great Prizes (see below) over the next several weeks. But you have to enter to win! Are you ready?

Before you enter, read about Sheree's Dog Rescue and the loving work she does to provide forgotten puppies and dogs a loving "forever" home.

About Sheree's Dog Rescue

Founded in 2007 by Linda Van Asveld, Sheree's Dog Rescue is a non-specific small dog breed rescue located in McKinney, TX.  Because they have several foster homes, the dogs of their rescue all receive personal time, love and very good care. Their dogs are not boarded or left in kennels all day. Instead they are all fostered in private homes so the dogs learn to live a life with a loving family. And in many cases, this is the first time these dogs are given the love and attention that every dog deserves. The end goal of Sheree's Dog Rescue is to find that perfect "forever" loving family for each one of the dogs they rescue. 

All of Sheree's rescue dogs receive dental cleanings as needed and depending on the condition of their teeth. Their dogs are spayed/neutered, tested for heartworms and treated if positive, as well as get updated on all shots. They also seek the help of specialists for eye problems, skin issues and  surgeries. And each dog is microchipped.

Sheree's rescue dogs are fed the highest quality food that they can buy for them. Most of the dogs are crate trained and all begin potty training right away. Of course, they cannot guarantee a dog will not have "accidents" in his new home, so it is important that you as a new owner of a rescue dog continue to work with your new dog, helping him re-adapt to a new schedule and his new home.

Checkout this little cutie, Siun (pronounced SH-OO-N). She just came into the rescue December 18, 2020. She is an owner surrender and is so sweet. She will get groomed and vetted Christmas week and will be up for adoption.

Running the rescue, caring and providing for these forgotten dogs and finding good loving homes for them is no easy task but Linda finds it a very rewarding one.

In order to continue this very important work, the rescue counts on the generosity of donations. No dollar amount is too small. All donations help with vet bills, food, and medication. You can learn more about Sheree’s Dog Rescue, how to donate and the adoption process here:

Another way Linda raises money is through the sales of her online shop: Shortcut to Comfort. So we have decided to purchase 4 crate mats and have a giveaway!  These adorable handmade beds can be used in a crate or alone for that perfect spot for your pup to enjoy a nap.

You will be able to chose one crate mat in either size 24x18 or 30x18 (designs and sizes based on availability)

Below is just a small sample of some of the ultra soft fleece patterns.

And these attractive and fashionable crate mats are all handmade by Linda herself!
