Nair & Bjorn:  "Land & Sea.. Thier Survival Is Up To You & Me" necklace
Value of $45 USD
When animal-lover and designer Kimberly Spector rescued her dog Mowgli from the street, she never dreamed it would lead her to saving other animals.
Inspired by Mowgli, Spector launched her handmade accessory business, Nair & Bjorn, by combining two of her passions – creating elegant and contemporary jewelry, and helping rescue animals.
Kim finds herself influenced by the sumptuousness of Indian apparel and accessories, using Swarovski crystals in many of her pieces, meticulously applying them by hand for an effect that is both opulent and unexpected.
The Nair & Bjorn RescueWear line, on the other hand, is trendy and vegan. Featuring stamped inspirational phrases relating to pet rescue and animal advocacy and adoption, the RescueWear line is favorite among animal lovers, and a testament to the unconditional love that only an animal can give. What began as an outlet to be creative, one of Spector’s passions has also helped to give back to one of her other passions––helping rescue animals. She is extremely devoted to this cause, helping rescue animals “one accessory at a time” by donating 20% of sales to no-kill shelters and animal charities.
This gorgeous necklace was designed specifically to speak for all animals who call the land and the sea thier home.  It is our job as citizens of this planet to suport and care for both equally and with the same dedication.  This item is a conversation starter and we can't wait to hear from the winner what gems of advocacy it sparks for them!

Tooth & Honey:  Sharky Set
Dog Harness, Collar, & Leash
Value of $63 USD
In 2015, Ally Concannon founded Tooth & Honey with the mission of making fashion forward, functional, comfortable accessories for hard-to-fit, pit bull type dogs. With a further purpose of utilizing the T&H platform as a way to support the animal rescue community and animal awareness initiatives.
Tooth alludes to the loyally protective nature of these specific canines; like a fiercely supportive friend with a hard-candy shell. This rough exterior is balanced with Honey; which refers to the calm, therapeutic, and sweet presence of pit bull type dogs—or any dog for that matter—who have become true members of the family. Anyone with a pit bull or bully breed knows that damaged stereotypes and violent perceptions about them couldn’t be further from the truth!
One of Tooth and Honey’s priorities is to change that image, so that more bully breeds will be rescued and adopted.

This custom designed Tooth & Honey 'Sharky' set is the best way to celebrate SharkWeek every day!  The dog side-release collar features a neoprene lining with a vibrant printed nylon strap and comes with a matching leash and harness. The harness features a soft inner mesh lining and is fully adjustable so that it always fits comfortably.  All items are 1" wide.
Tooth & Honey designs whimsical on-trend canine accessories for pit bull type dogs. When you shop with us, you’re also helping us support the animal rescue community. It’s important to us as a company to showcase pit bulls in a positive light, so that more bully breeds will be rescued and adopted. We want to promote responsible dog ownership and hope to encourage people to adopt their next best friend.
We are proud partners with One Love Pit Bull Foundation and the Northwest Dog Project.

Blockhead Box:   1 Box containing mix of Dog toys, treats, & accessories
Value of $36 USD
When David Crino, a teacher, coach, martial artist and dog lover, had a student of his discuss being raised in a family of dog fighters going back generations, he decided that something needed to be done to change this negative cyclical mentality. He founded FIGHT4THEM.ORG, an organization to raise awareness about the negative aspects of dog fighting and help to confidently educate young people through the use of martial arts and other sports. The organization provides positive role models such as mixed martial artists, wrestlers, and boxers who proudly wear the FIGHT4THEM logos such as, “I fight, so they don’t have to!”. The FIGHT4THEM organization has grown into a community who shows their love for dogs and disdain for dog fighting through their loyal support at dog events, martial arts tournaments, and various fight night events and on social media sites. “Being tough has nothing to do with how vicious your dog acts or how cruel you can be towards defenseless animals. Toughness is your ability to overcome fear and adversity by doing the right thing no matter how difficult it may be.” Proceeds from FIGHT4THEM.ORG merchandise sales and monetary donations are applied towards the humane education of kids, to promote athletics and alternative constructive activities to dog fighting, to other anti-dog fighting charities and to animal law enforcement agencies to help combat dog fighting.

BlockHead Box is the newest subscription box on the market and if we do say so ourselves... the best box on the market! Besides getting a great box of gifts for you and your dog to tear into, you will also be helping dogs in need, humane education and law enforcement.  We are confident that the lucky dog and human who wins this prize will have much to bark about.... treats, toys, accessories, and advocacy all rolled into one awesome box!
