Givebones: Buy a Collar, Save a Dog, Join the Movement!
Givebones is a charitable company committed to giving homeless dogs the life they deserve. Ultimately, their goal is to generate awareness and financial support in hopes of reducing the amount of homeless dogs being euthanized every year.
According to Givebones founder Tricia Andrews, “there are approximately 5 million to 7 million furry companions that enter animal shelters every year.” With this astounding number of shelter animals in need, Givebones wants everyone to “join the movement” and help shelters and rescue groups save dogs.
Tricia’s inspiration to start a movement happened while her husband was participating in a Giving Trip with TOMS in Central America. During his trip, he couldn’t help but notice the amount of homeless dogs. While homelessness is a global epidemic, they decided to start a movement in their own backyard.
For every collar sold, Givebones gives back 10% of sales to shelters and rescue groups dedicated to the cause of giving every dog the life they deserve.
I was graciously sent a small, red Givebones collar for our family dog Bailey to try out and review. He is due for a new collar and I LOVE the concept of buy-one-help-one. Our family is also a big TOMS shoes fan, so it is completely natural to extend that same love and passion to the four legged member of our family.
Beyond being part of a movement to save homeless dogs, the collar is sturdy and well made, as well as attractive and easy to clasp/un-clasp. I highly recommend Givebones collars along with the following celebrity supporters; Eva Longoria, Pink, Billy Ray Cyrus, Nick and Vanessa Lachey, Jesse Metcalf, Tony Romo, Troy Aikman and more.
Givebones collars are available in a wide variety of colors and in extra small, small, medium and large sizes for the retail price of $14.99 at www.givebones.com. A complimentary Givebones wristband comes with each purchase allowing animal lovers to show their support and help give their dog a voice.
