Dog rescue and animal welfare are very important causes at For Love of a Dog. Most of our own pets are rescues and we believe in giving back.
Animals, especially dogs are a passion of ours and it is important to us the For Love of a Dog do more than make money for ourselves. Since we began creating animal themed jewelry, we set aside a portion of our work to donate to pet charities. Now our partner program is a way for others to participate as well.
For Love of a Dog belongs to and supports several animal welfare and rescue groups. We list dog rescue and dog breed organizations on our site. We promote rescue and animal welfare groups's events on our Pet Events calendar, as well as on our Talking Dogs blog. We offer rescue and animal advocacy organizations the opportunity to partner with us as an affiliate for fundraising.
For Love of a Dog receives many requests for donations daily. While we're certain that all are very worthy causes and events. we are a small one woman business and we're simply not able to honor all requests. Because of the sheer volume of donation requests, we've created this policy.
