It doesn't need to be the holiday time to treat our pets to something special. After all, they have our backs all year. That being said, it's always fun to get your dog in on the gift-getting fun this season. But if their treat jar is already full and their toy bin overflowing, how do you decide what to get next?

Well Best Friends Animal Society, a national animal welfare organization, is making it an easy choice, with their line of pet toys, treats and products for pet parents too. 100 percent of the proceeds from sales go to help save the lives of homeless pets. So, not only can you feel good about this gift making your pet's tail wag, but pets in need will also benefit. 

And if you're not a pet parent yourself, but shopping for a dog lover in your life, there's a great range of gift ideas for them too. Take a look at some our favorite gifts for dogs and pet parents this year:
