I’ve long been a fan of BARK‘s cheeky squeaky toys (and, of course, the legendary BARKBox), and their newest line of treats, Snacks That Give Back, are equally awesome: each bag supports a local dog rescue with funding, products, or time — whatever the rescue is most in need of. Each tasty treat variety is inspired by local cuisine (Chicago dog jerky snacks, California fish tacos, Hawaiian luau pork) and the bags include brief profiles of the rescues they support. Snacks That Give Back are made in the USA, feature meat as their #1 ingredient, are free of wheat, corn, and soy, and contain no artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives. Check them out at, or find them in-store.

Katherine, who lives with her family in the mountains of North Carolina, curated her own dog blog for a couple of years before joining the Design Milk team. If she ever won the lottery, she’d most definitely spend it all on live music & airfare to New York City. Other interests include craft beer, banjos, books, & BBQ.
