animal rescue: leffe

Nicknames: Lef, Little Brew, Lil Bud

Before he was famous: Leffe was found running as a stray in Estill County, Kentucky where he was brought to the county’s high-kill animal control facility. From there he was transported up to Second City Canine Rescue in Medinah Illinois—where he was rescued and got a fresh start in a new home.

Talent Show: Playing “fetch!” and sniffing out anything you try to hide from him.

Favorite Snack: Anything peanut butter-y.

With a Winning Lottery Ticket: He’d buy a lifetime supply of his favorite squeaky ball—and rescue a playmate to fight with over them.

Cat and dog adoption fast facts:
…approximately 4 million pet dogs and cats are euthanized each year due to overpopulation.
…25% of pet dogs euthanized in animal shelters are purebred.
…adopting a dog or cat from the Humane Society, ASPCA—any rescue group—can save their life.
…and, being a pet owner can add years to your life too.

I love that you featured a rescued pet in your catalog - it was such a nice surprise!! I hope you will continue to do this and bring more attention to pet overpopulation and pet adoption. It's great that you added the facts under the blog post although it could have been bolder and easier to see. Maybe you could add a little blurb somewhere on the catalog page as well. I don't think people realize how many sweet adoptables die in shelters and that when people dump them at shelters, they are more likely to be euthanized rather than adopted.

Kudos to CB2 for making an effort to bring attention to pet adoption in such a cute way as to put the pet right in the middle of your advertising! Now there's an even better reason to love Crate and Barrel other than the cool, modern furniture and accessories that you sell!!! Thank you! :-)

Leffe is awesome. We love our CB2 products. And discovered Leffe in your publications. We think he's our dog's long lost BF, shower dog cave loving & all. Bravo! We think Leffe should have his own FB page...and then to connect to CB2 :)
