Glenn Close may have hunted 101 dalmations in her acting career, but in reality she’s crazy about dogs and encouraging her famous friends like Martha Stewart to team up and raise money for animal-related charities. Stewart recently collaborated with Close through her site Fetchdog.com to garner funds for the ASPCA.
Close and husband David Shaw started online site Fetchdog.com last year to bring dog lovers together and sell quality products in a one-stop shop. States the site, “[W]e wanted our dogs to enjoy naturally healthy food, treats, and health care products free of chemicals and byproducts.” A percentage of the proceeds from Fetchdog.com’s Charitable Shops section, sponsored by various celebs such as Stewart, goes toward animal-related charities of the stars’ choosing.
Stewart’s puppy-worthy items include a faux shearling blanket, an eco-friendly dog bed filled with recycled polyfill, veggie rawhide, preservative-free treats and more.
As part of the Fetch.dog.com community, a blog run by Close features interviews of dog-friendly celebrities and field experts. Stewart, who lives with a menagerie of animals, was no exception to the blog inquiry,
“I love all animals… I live on a farm with horses, miniature donkeys, 200 chickens, cats, owls etc… But I LOVE my dogs because they are so loyal and such marvelous company,” said Stewart in her interview on Close’s blog, Lively Licks: Profiles of Dogs and their People. “They are extremely sociable and are great companions. They are very curious and so much fun to be with. In fact, I would rather be with them than almost anyone.”
