You mean like this?Not for my dog so much, (she is wearing a permanent raincoat), but there is something about pugs in clothing that makes me giggle and melt.
Clothing donation centers wont take the time to find another organization to take a few pieces of dog clothes. They do mass deliveries to homeless shelters they already established a connection with and resell at thrift stores for more profit. If anyone has basic sweaters though dog rescue groups probably will take them for older dogs or if you're in a colder climate.Oh really?? I suppose that chasing for the latest and abandoning old thing is a kind of human nature..... maybe the charity organizations would contribute the spare pet clothes to animal shelters.
I don't use special occasion dresses just once. I get quite some wear from it. Take a Snow White costume for example. LuLu wore it for Halloween greeting trick-o-treaters, on a Halloween walk, week after that she wore it to a Pug-o-rama, then a pug meetup, then to greet children at the door of a princess birthday party for our friends 2 year old, and a few times for entertainment. It came with a ribbon head band and she wore it around her head to the park. Now that she's passed on, Jezzy has worn the dress for Halloween(even though it's funny because she's black in a Snow White dress) and Gweeb wore the bow as a little bowtie when we first got him. Not bad use out of a $9 costume to be worn several times by 3 different dogs.But many owners put the costumes on their pets to attend some special occasions such as ceremony or friend's wedding party, and next time they won't dress the same clothes again!
Eh, you'd be surprised. I work at a shelter and we have a LOT of uses for doggy clothes and we're constantly getting donations and throwing away ruined clothes. We use them for adoption events in the fall/winter or in the rain, for themed adoption events, the medium-small dogs are almost always sweater-clad in the winter since they're outside for so long, we've lost power a few times and had to put everyone in clothes to keep them warm, and we dress up dogs that are less likely to get adopted in the shelter a lot, too.Animal shelters have no need of doggy clothes (except maybe coats, if the dogs are walked in the cold). Maybe some pet stores would re-sell gently used pet clothes. Or the owners could sell them on eBay.
I'm not going to lie, Murphy looks like a Chupacabra* here. LOL.I like to do Halloween costumes. And sweaters or jackets for the winter.
Murphy was both a skunk and Elvis this year for Halloween:
