We feel so strongly about pet rescue and adoption that we've set up two different donation programs. First, rescue groups or shelters can sign up to receive a unique promotion code that they can distribute to anyone they want. When someone enters the promo code upon check out, they instantly receive $10 off their order. But it also flags their order so that we know which organization to send a monetary donation to! Double win - the shopper and the group they support! The amount of the donation depends on which products were purchased, typically more expensive products result in a larger donation. In June this program enabled us to send a donation to Greyt Expectations Greyhound Rescue, located in Maryland. We'd like to send more money to more rescue/adoption groups, so we're going to publicize the promo codes - starting now:
GIVEBACKTOBRGA - To support Blue Ridge Greyhound Adoption in Virginia
GIVEBACKTOGREYTEXPECTATIONS - To support Greyt Expectations in Maryland
GIVEBACKTOGRATEFULGREYHOUNDS - To support Grateful Greyhounds in New York/New JerseyGIVEBACKTOFRIENDSOFRABBITS - To support rabbit rescue organization Friends of Rabbits in Washington DC.
Our second program is a way for supporters to make merchandise donations. For example if a shelter needs donated food bowls, bedding, leashes or other supplies, they can do so through this program. It works exactly like a wedding registry: the organization creates an account in our shop, marks the products they need and the quantities, and then publicizes the URL of the list. When people purchase items from the list, the quantites are adjusted and the items are shipped directly to the organization. This is a new program, so we'll be working with some local shelters to "beta test" it, but anyone who wants to participate in it can do so. (It could also be used for pet birthday or "gotcha day" parties!)
If your organization would like to participate in either of these programs, just give a yell to sharon@SomethingSpecialPetSupplies.com!
