If you've hung out on the Savings.com Facebook page for any length of time, you know that we love dogs! So much so, that we have an entire page dedicated to the office dogs that come to work at the Savings headquarters in Santa Monica. 

And the one thing we love best about having pets, is finding the best deals to spoil them! Here are a couple of tips to help you save on your much needed pet supplies. 

1. Shop online with coupon codes. Sites like Petsmart and Petco offer exclusive online deals, and most of the time you can get free shipping. 

2. Use your store loyalty cards, coupons and discounts to grab the deals. Stores like Petsmart have store loyalty cards and coupons. Even other stores like CVS, Rite Aid, Kroger and Target can offer special discounts, gift card deals and more. Using these deals to strategically stock up on pet supplies can really help you save a lot of money. 

3. Shop Craigslist, yard sales and at thrift shops to find good deals on bigger items you may need like dog crates or dog houses.
These places can be a great source of fabulous deals. Many times I've been able to snatch up some great pet supplies for free this way. 

4. Take advantage of the bulk discount prices at your local wholesale club. This is especially good if you need a quick deal, but don't have time to shop with coupons. Costco consistently has a good price on the big bags of dog food, and that's how I usually stock up. 

And the best way to save on a pet and save a life at the same time is to adopt from a local shelter! 

Do you have any great tips for saving on pet supplies? I'd love to hear!
