As most of you may already know a big part of our mission is to help shelter dogs find loving and forever homes and as such we donate 5% of our profits to Marin Humane. This amazing non-profit shelter is where we adopted our two tiny muses (Watson and Sherlock) from.
With October being adopt a shelter dog month we thought it would be an excellent time to share with you that because of all the wonderful orders from 2018 we were able to sponsor the adoption fees of two senior dogs! You might ask why we chose to sponsor senior dogs. The simple fact is that dogs aged 10+ are much more difficult to adopt out. Senior pups are often more subdued in shelters and as such don’t tend to catch the eye of potential pawrents. Additionally, senior dogs can sometimes come with health issues that most people aren’t willing or able to put in the extra effort. By covering the adoption fees of these older and wiser pups means it gives adopters one less expense to worry about and hopefully encourage them to consider a dog they might have overlooked.
And now on to the fun part! The second lucky that we sponsored with help from customers like you is Puff, a senior, mini poodle mix. Here is what Marin Humane had to say about this beloved pooch:
“Sweet Puff was surrendered to Marin Humane when his people could no longer care for him. Puff is looking for a wonderful place to spend his golden years. He is not interested in other dogs or interacting with them.
Puff is in love with his person, or whoever is holding the leash. He follows them around, sits on their lap, and gives them his undying attention. Did we mention that he walks like a dream on leash and doesn't require a ton of exercise?
Puff would prefer a relaxed lifestyle with a person who is home most of the time.”
Puff was adopted soon after we sponsored him and is no longer available for adoption, but rest assured that he is doing very well with his new family.
