ZuGoPet Soft Launch Party In Beverly Hills Brings Celebrities and Animal Lovers Together

ZuGoPet Soft Launch Party In Beverly Hills Brings Celebrities and Animal Lovers Together

Earlier this week, Teens Wanna Know’s junior reporter Keira Peña got the chance to mingle with some dedicated animal lovers and a celeb or two at the soft launch for ZuGoPet held at a private mansion in Beverly Hills.

What is ZuGoPet?

It is a dog car seat/pet bed/travel bag combo invented by Juls Bindi. It is designed to keep small dogs from becoming anxious while riding around in your car, which then easily converts into a stylish handbag.

Highlights of the product include:

  • Vegan-friendly material
  • Vented on 3 sides
  • 5 pockets to hold your stuff
  • Airport compliant
  • Available in three colors: Midnight Black, Lipstick Pink and Snow White
  • Matching harnesses and plush blankets are available

ZuGoPet’s slogan is “Buy a bag, save a life” because “any 501(c)(3) that sells a ZuGoPet bag will get 100% of the profits” and they will also give at least $1 from each ZuGoPet product sold through other channels to save the lives of shelter animals.

In order to raise funds for the first shipment, the company launched an Indiegogo.com campaign with lots of perks for contributors. You can check that out here: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/zugopet-travel-bag-a-revolutionary-dog-car-seat

And now…some highlights from the party!

Remember: If you are thinking of getting a pet, go to a shelter first. Rescue dogs make GREAT pets (we have one ourselves at TWK headquarters) and these little lives depend on you to save them.
