Since day one, we have always believed that being in the dog industry is more than just selling products. We want to stand out from all the dog businesses in the industry and be a part of something bigger.
We believe that one of the most important members of our community are the shelters and rescue organizations - the real unsung heroes.
Every year, over 6 million animals enter U.S. animal shelters (aspca.org). Our shelters do so much to help those animals and hopefully give them a second chance. They are the ones rescuing dogs from abusive situations. They are the ones helping to heal the physical and emotional wounds. They are the ones that help us find our new best friend.
We are so grateful for the work that shelters do, and we wanted to find a way to give back to them.
Apply to be a part of our Philanthropy Program
Whether you work for a shelter yourself, or know one that is deserving of some extra help, we encourage you to apply to be a part of our Philanthropy Program.
Multiple times a year, we donate gently used Gooby items to shelters across the country. We'd love to support your favorite shelter by partnering with them.
Below are some photos we've received from shelters in the past of rescue dogs that wore our donations. If you rescued a dog from a shelter that gave you a Gooby product, please share your photo below. We'd love to see it and highlight it!
If you're interested in learning more about the epidemic happening in U.S. shelters, we wrote a blog post for National Rescue Dog Day that gave a lot more information. Click on the button below to read it.
