Ho, ho, ho! ’Tis that time of year again! Every day for the next 7 days we’ll be sharing local shopping gift ideas for your loved ones, and best of all — you can buy them all right here in the village. Day 6 is all about animal love!
Long Live Cats and Dogs
For Christmas this year, LLCD have holiday gift bags and stockings in various denominations for your dog or cat! LLCD is located in the Hastings-Sunrise neighbourhood of The East Village. They began this business to truly help pets, educate consumers and allow people to make informed decisions when it comes to their pet’s health and longevity. They also strive to promote individual artisans and crafters by bringing in unique, handmade items for your pet, and focus on items created with recycled or environmentally-friendly materials.
Also of note — if you love local branded merchandise like hoodies, t-shirts and tote bags, then definitely stop in at LLCD. All proceeds from their merch go toward neuterhead, which is a non profit organization using the spirit of rock ’n’ roll to raise funds to assist rescue groups with the costs of spaying and neutering companion animals.
