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.
Oregon Humane Society
The Oregon Humane Society, founded 150 years ago, has been rescuing, healing, and adopting out more than 11,000 pets each year and never places a time limit on how long they can stay at the shelter. Though they operate as a non-profit organization, they receive no government funding and therefore rely 100% on the generosity of their donors, fundraisers, and sponsors to continue the lifesaving work they are able to accomplish for and with the support of the community.
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.
