Since we started selling our new and improved collection in the beginning of December, we decided to pick an extra special shelter to donate to at the end of the month. And we chose...
The Last Chance Rescue in Howell, Michigan!
This rescue came to our attention a while ago, and was put on the list of all the shelters that we planned to donate to in 2017. They are an incredible non-profit organization, which rescues dogs, cats, birds, and rabbits from certain death at the hands of kill shelters and research lists. They have rescued over 27 thousand animals 17 years. They embody every trait we look for in a Rescue Partner and we had hoped to donate to them over one of our regular 4 month donation periods. But they need our help now!
The Last Chance Rescue is "in jeopardy due to a failed septic field and the necessity to hook into the sewer system". If they are unable to raise $50k by February 1st, 2017, they will be forced to close their doors. If they are able to reach their goal, they can keep their kennels open and any remaining funds will be used to provide improvements to the shelter and medical care for the animals. If they are unsuccessful in meeting their goal, the money raised will go towards transporting and relocating the animals to avoid euthanasia.
We will be donating a portion of our profits from December 2016 and January 2017 directly to the shelter in an effort to keep them open. You can help by purchasing any of the products on our site or donating directly to their GO FUND ME page. This is our chance to make a difference.
