We’re not sure if the makers of this dog toy meant for it to smell like cupcakes, but we do know the Washington, DC-based Wigzi intended to make a non-toxic and chewable toy for pups that doesn’t smell like rubber and that house treats inside. They’re also eco-friendly and animals adore them.

Toys come in small, medium and large. Prices range from 6.99 to 11.99. Treats sold separately. Please call your closest store to check stock. DC only.

Recycled Love rescues animals from abuse, injury, neglect and abandonment. If you can’t adopt, the organization has both fostering and sponsoring programs for their dog and cats.

BUT if you adopt one of their animals before 5.31.11, we’ll give you 30% off your first purchase of pet supplies. Right. On.
