Introducing the Pets of BLINQ!


If there’s one thing that unites the employees of BLINQ, it’s our love for animals (and saving money—so make that two things!). With so many animal lovers under one roof, we thought it was about time to put the spotlight on some of our furry friends. After all, they are pretty cute.

While we love our pets, it’s no secret that we also love finding new ways to save money and spend smartly. So we asked our team members their favorite money-saving tip when it comes to pet care. Check out their answers below! That is…if you’re not distracted by all the cuteness.


Money-Saving Tip: We like to know what goes into Bayne’s food AND we like to save money so we choose to make our own healthy dog treats at home!

-Rebecca, BLINQ Team Member


Money-Saving Tip: Bodoni has one favorite toy–a mouse at the end of a wire with a handle. So we just buy replacements for toy mouse on the end of it or even make our own instead of buying completely new toys.

-Erica, BLINQ Team Member


Money-Saving Tip: To save money, I buy large treats and break them into thirds or quarters to make them last longer!

-Brooke, BLINQ Team Member


Money-Saving Tip: Find a pet sitter for when you’re out of town–it’s usually much cheaper than a pet hotel, and it’s much less stressful for your pets!

-Dan, BLINQ Team Member


Money-Saving Tip: Buddy loves peanut butter and popcorn, so what we save on not buying treats, we spoil him with lots of dog toys!

-Chuck, BLINQ Team Member


Money-Saving Tip: Instead of taking April to get groomed once a month, my family and I make a game out of bathing her. That way April enjoys it and the family bonds together.

-Celeste, BLINQ Team Member


Money-Saving Tip: Since Onyx loves cardboard boxes and socks, I don’t splurge on toys and instead save for his treats! He especially loves these organic lamb treats my mom introduced him to.

-Charlotte, BLINQ Team Member


Money-Saving Tip: Make the most of what you find in nature!

-Leah, BLINQ Team Member
