I introduced you to the Dean Russo Rescue Collection from The Mountain® back in June when it first came out. I was so excited when this line was launched by the makers of my favorite pet t shirts. A portion of the proceeds goes to Best Friends Animal Society®. Best Friends is in Utah and it’s the largest no kill facility in the nation. They were founded in 1984 and due to their hard work the number of animals killed each year has been reduced from 17 million to 4 million. You can learn more about them and their work at bestfriends.org
Let me remind you why I love these Dean Russo shirts so much. Like all #MountainArtwear tees they are made using environmentally friendly, water based inks and dyes. This process is in place to protect our Earth, our air and our water. The shirts are created, dyed and printed in New Hampshire and 80% of the cotton used is grown in the USA. The shirts are made with pre-shrunk cotton and if you follow the washing instructions you can be assured that your shirt will maintain its size and vibrancy. I can attest to this as I have a The Mountain tee shirt wardrobe and the shirts have been washed many a time and I can’t tell my new ones from my old ones.
The Rescue Collection is a special line that has lots of dogs, a cat (more cats! more cats!) and my new favorite – the Funky Horse. No, I don’t have a horse nor am a I getting one any time soon but I do love them. I used to ride when I was a teenager and I’ve gone on very gentle trail rides over the years since my surgeries, but like so many of the the things I used to enjoy I’m really not supposed to ride. If I had a heck of a lot more land and ton more money I’d get a horse but it’s not anything I can afford at this point in my life. I settle for visiting the horses across the street. They are magnificent animals!
I’ve added my horse to my The Mountain tee shirt collection. I’ve just placed another order but I can’t share what design I’ve chosen as I ordered a similar one for the hubby as a Christmas present. I’ve done a fair bit of holiday shopping at The Mountain already! I’ll let you in on a big secret – sign up for their newsletter! You get first notice of all of the great sales and shipping is free if you spend $50 (in the US) but if you don’t it’s only $5!
I know, I know, I’m the only one crazy enough to put a tee shirt on her goat. But Pricilla does look adorable in her goat shirt, doesn’t she?
I’m sure you’re excited to shop at The Mountain. You’ll want to pick up a favorite – or two or three – and I don’t blame you!
