Giving Back to the Community

Each quarter, we partner with a local animal-focused organization to donate lightly-used collars and leashes, as well as 10% of the profits from the past quarter's sales. Our current charitable partner is Dogs with Wings.

 

 

Dogs with Wings

Dogs With Wings Assistance Dog Society logo
Dogs with Wings
 is a registered charitable organization that has been providing Guide Dogs for the visually impaired since their inception in 1996. They

are governed by a volunteer Board of Directors, and rely heavily on major sponsorships and donations to operate. As the organization has grown, they began their Service Dog program in 2003, Autism Service Dog program in 2007, and both the Facility Service Dog and Companion Dog programs in 2009. They are accredited by both Assistance Dogs International (ADI) and the International Guide Dog Federation (IGDF), and are members of the Canadian Association of Guide & Assistance Dog Schools (CAGADS).

We chose Dogs with Wings as our charitable partner for this quarter for their ongoing work both in providing impeccable care and training to the animals themselves, but also for their work to improve integration and independence for individuals with disabilities. As we head into the Christmas season, we are reminded that this is a season of giving, and the spirit of the season is so much more important than physical or monetary gifts. For families who live with disabilities, acceptance and independence is priceless.
