If you can’t tell yet, I am an avid lover of all living creatures-yes, even spiders. I don’t want them to be near me, but we do need them. Since you’re reading this, I assume that you love, and want to help, animals, too! Of course, we can always donate directly to organizations that are saving animals. However, wouldn’t you like to put your shopping to good use, too?! In order to help you do that, I’ve compiled a list of several online companies (I’ve gotta support the entrepreneurs, too!) that donate a percentage of purchases to various non-profits that support companion animals, wildlife, marine life, etc. Here it goes!
1. Phone Cases to the Rescue
Phone Cases to the Rescue has a pretty decent selection of both slim and tough cases with animal themes. Pictured above is the case I ordered for myself. One: Blue is my favorite color. Two: I love wine. Three: I have a t-shirt with this quote, too. My tough case was $28.99 with shipping. Slim cases are $22.99 with shipping. Both are great deals for a phone case AND a portion goes to the rescue/shelter of your choice. When you check out, you’ll find a drop down menu with groups the company currently partners with for donations. If you see your favorite group on the list then go ahead and choose that one! If you don’t, you can choose any random one. Personally, I chose Recycle A Bull Bully Breed Rescue, as that’s the rescue I volunteer with on a semi-regular basis(& how I found out about this great company). Feel free to choose that one if you don’t know any of the groups on the list 🙂
2. Sand Cloud Towels
Sand Cloud Towels sells, as the name implies, beach towels. They also sell tapestries, necklaces, water bottles, bags, etc. 10% of all their profits go directly to non-profits that are supporting the preservation of marine life all over the world(the site lists the orgs they support)! On top of that, the products they carry are absolutely amazing! It’s worth noting that a towel can carry a hefty price tag of $47. However, these are hand-loomed, hand-dyed, and they go to support a fantastic cause. The beauty of the products speak for themselves, though. They are definitely worthy of the price tag. I bought the starburst towel, pictured above!
Bonus: They also have an ambassador program, as well as a rewards program. These are tied together, but not entirely. You can have the rewards program without being an ambassador, but you must have the rewards program to be an ambassador. Being an ambassador automatically entitles you to a 35% discount on all purchases! All you have to do is spread the word about the company, its products, and its mission, on social media. You can rack up rewards points to use on future purchases in the store by making qualifying purchases, referring friends, and following the company on social media. *disclaimer: I am an ambassador for Sand Cloud. If you make a purchase through this link, or sign up to be a fellow ambassador, I will receive rewards points. However, my overall mission is to give some added exposure to this company and the work it is helping to do with marine life.*
3. Pack Leashes
Pack Leashes are made from dynamic climbing rope and locking carabiners. They are definitely not your traditional leash, but they are so much better. Not only do they look like an adventure waiting to happen, but they are sturdy! You shouldn’t have to worry about your dog chewing up his/her leash(how the idea was birthed), or having it break on a hike. With every Pack Leashes purchase, 2 lbs of dog food is donated to a shelter! They also run discounts from time to time, so be sure to join their mailing list and follow them on Instagram! Now go check out their website for more info on the company and their products!
4. Iron & Rescue
For the athletic folk on here, you can check out this workout apparel from Iron & Rescue that encourages animal adoption. On top of serving to increase the exposure of animal rescue, they donate 1 lb of dog food to shelters in need for every purchase made. Pricing ranges from $16 to $40, with only one item currently above $30. I’d say that’s a pretty great deal! They have tank tops, t-shirts, and hoodies with various designs that promote adoption/rescue. Click through to their website to see all they have to offer!
That’s all, folks-For now!
When I come across more online companies like this, I’ll do another post! I also plan to have a separate post with larger businesses that support animals through donations, foundations, etc. If you know of any businesses, small or large, please let me know! I’d love to include them in a future post!
