WE NEED COLLARS! We try to make sure every dog that comes to our rescue gets their own brand new collar & leash, and it's time for us to stock up. We need about 100 collars.

Canis Gear has very good quality fabric Martingale Collars (they make it much harder for a foster dog to back out of a collar and get loose). Adjustable Collars are available for about $3 per collar, sold in packs of 10. We have the greatest need for size Medium & Large. VISIT CANIS GEAR STORE at canisgear.com/collections/all and scroll down to the Martingale section. We prefer green, but if they are sold out, we can use other colors!

USE CODE 2020 AT CHECKOUT FOR FREE SHIPPING. Our Shipping Address is: 3000 Mohawk Blvd., Tulsa, OK 74110. We cannot thank you enough for your support!
