Who you support with your purchase
$1 for every bag purchased is donated equally between two amazing organizations: The Oregon Humane Society and the Soi Dog Foundation. We encourage you to learn more about why we think they’re awesome. (And yes, they both help cats, too!)
Soi Dog Foundation
Soi Dog’s mission is to improve the welfare of dogs and cats in Asia, resulting in better lives for both the animal and human communities, to create a society without homeless animals and to ultimately end animal cruelty.
Established in 2003 on the island of Phuket, Thailand, Soi Dog Foundation is S.E Asia's largest organization helping stray animals. It has permanent facilities in Phuket and Bangkok and responds to crisis situations throughout the region. The organization is dedicated to implementing effective, sustainable solutions that reduce the suffering of dogs and cats in Asia. The foundation runs entirely on donations and works efficiently so all donations are used to help animals as effectively as possible.
Dedicated to the treatment of stray animals, the most advanced shelter hospital in Southeast Asia is located on site in Phuket and treats over 300 new cases every month. The hospital has 14 full-time vets and welcomes vet volunteers from all over the world. Learn more here, or go directly to the Soi Dog website.
Below are photos that show some of the amazing work from this group. Here is Ironman when he was first brought to Soi Dog Foundation, during his recovery, and finally as he is now.
helping special needs dogs (and cats!)
This rescue group is awesome: They provide homeless dogs, who would otherwise have no options, with new opportunities for love and life.
Their care consists of the critical needs of removing the dog from harm's way, and fostering, medical care, and finding loving homes. Salem Dogs’ will help all dogs but focuses on helping special needs dogs. They become "special" when their owners experience circumstances that prevent further care. These can include owner death, the need for hospice, and nursing/assisted living situations. These changes trigger the need for a new home for the dog. It is not often that another family member can take in the dog. In addition, some people find themselves unable to afford medical bills and opt to have their dog euthanized. In those cases, Salem Dogs is often contacted and has either taken in the dog or helped the owner financially.
In addition several core programs, they also offer emergency relief to disaster zones with a large group of staff and volunteers trained and certified in emergency shelter assistance, as well as a Technical Animal Rescue team consisting of volunteers who spend their free time repelling off of cliffs and climbing trees.
Because of that support the Oregon Humane Society has been able to develop and refine a variety of programs which they have been able to leverage for the good of the pets and the community. these programs include training & behavior, humane investigations, youth education, medical care, and of course adoptions.
