The 82-acre sanctuary provides large,
outdoor enclosures with trees, grass and
sunshine that allows room for the rescues to
exercise and to thrive.
On a daily basis, Radagast sets aside food
for the sanctuary out of every production run.
RESCUE PET FOODS
Shelly Youree, CEO
Debbie Rocker, Marc Ching and I are partners
in Rescue Pet Foods. We are a for-profit company, but we support the Animal Hope and
Wellness Foundation (AH WF), a 501(c)( 3)
nonprofit organization founded by Ching
that specializes in locating, rescuing and rehabilitating severely abused dogs and putting
an end to torture and abuse.
Most recently, AHWF is focused on saving dogs from the dog meat trade throughout
Asia. Ching recently saved more than 1,000
dogs at the Yulin dog meat festival in China.
Our goals are to:
ROLF C. HAGEN (USA) CORP.
• Rescue dogs and improve their quality
of life by producing fundamental treats and
foods that have potentially positive effects on
the health of pets beyond basic nutrition, as
well as pet nutraceuticals and supplements
• Rescue and repurpose USDA restau-
rant-quality meats for use in our treats and foods
• Rescue severely abused dogs by
supporting the AHWF
Each time we sell a bag of our treats,
we are able to help AH WF save more dogs
from torture and abuse in Asia and around
Damian Hall, senior
Recently, Rolf C. Hagen (USA) Corp. produced
the CatIt Playground New York adoption and
pop-up store in New York. The event was
a celebration of all things cat and guests
were encouraged to visit and interact with
adoptable cats, and kittens from the nonprofit
Animal Haven shelter of New York while
checking out the latest CatIt products.
Visitors were greeted by adoptable
kittens as soon they entered and could
learn about additional rescue and volunteer
options. Partnering with a great organization
like Animal Haven allows us an opportunity to
give back to a great cause.
RUSH DIRECT/RES-Q NATURALS
Bruce J. Flantzer, executive vice
president of sales and marketing
Wood Dale, Ill.
Rush Direct and the ResQ Naturals brand
recently partnered with Vanderpump Dog
Foundation, a nonprofit founded by Lisa
Vanderpump and her husband, Ken Todd, to
help provide second chances for abused and
neglected dogs through campaigns, social
media awareness, events and more. We also
are working together to expand their impact
on global legislation, education and the
overall treatment of animals.
ResQ Naturals also has partnered with
Los Angeles-based Karma Rescue. Through
education, Karma reinforces the need for
spay/neuter and offers guidance to strength-
en the animal-human bond. One group
Karma works with is Paws For Life, which
brings rescued shelter dogs to live full-time
with inmates at California State Prison in
Los Angeles County. Over a 12-week cycle,
inmates learn from Karma’s trainers how to
train rescue dogs for Canine Good Citizen
In addition, all ResQ Naturals packages
feature photos and stories of real-life
owners and their rescue dog or cat. The goal
is to help shine a light on the journey they
have taken together and the importance of
With each purchase of a ResQ Naturals
treat, consumers can vote for a preselected
rescue organization to receive a donation.
Rush Direct donates a portion of ResQ
Naturals’ overall product sales based on the
James Brandly, marketing
Tropiclean founder Donald Kassebaum Sr.
established Gifts of Love International, which
directs a portion of TropiClean’s revenue
directly to supporting the poor, widowed and
orphaned in countries like Guatemala, Haiti
and beyond, and has built an orphanage, fed
thousands and provided homes for many.
TropiClean recently introduced its new
shelter initiative, TropiClean First Impressions, which provides grooming supplies
to shelters to use on their adoptable pets
to leave them smelling and looking good,
providing the very best first impression for a
potential pet owner.
The company donates to charities,
special events and fundraisers throughout the
year. Donations include kits with a variety of
TropiClean products, coupons, single-serve
treats and customized gift baskets. Just this
year, TropiClean has donated more than 1,000
products to charities and fundraisers that
meet TropiClean’s beliefs and mission.
WAHL CLIPPER CORP.
Shay Moeller, pet product
Wahl has donated clippers and other grooming
products to local shelters for several decades.
We’ve donated grooming supplies to shelters
affected by natural disasters as well as supporting a tour that went from shelter to shelter
educating staff on how to best groom and
photograph animals to help them get adopted.
Five years ago, we saw an opportunity to
take our pet shelter support to the next level
with the Dirty Dogs contest, and
GreaterGood.org has been a great partner.
Since 2006, the independent 501(c)( 3) charitable organization has given more than $30
million to partners and programs worldwide
that work toward our mission.
This year’s goal is to transform more than
20,000 dogs and prep them for adoption.
For this year’s contest, 10 of the most
dramatic transformations from the gallery
were selected to participate, and public
votes determined the top three winners. The
animal shelters or rescue groups affiliated
with these transformations will receive
monetary grants to further support their
efforts. First place takes home $5,000,
second place receives $2,000, and third
place earns $1,000.
Over the past five years, Wahl has donated tens of thousands of dollars and thousands
of bottles of pet shampoo to more than 500
shelters nationwide. This year, Wahl donated
1,200 bottles of its all-natural pet shampoo
to shelters, helping to wash and ready more
than 20,000 dogs for adoption.
Chanda Leary-Coutu, senior
Over the years, the WellPet Foundation has
donated thousands of pounds of food to
the Delta Humane Society, Jackson Galaxy
Foundation and PetSmart Charities.
Most recently, we donated to Stray Cat
Alliance, a nonprofit organization dedicated
to ending the feral cat crisis in Los Angeles
County. In total, we donated 3,500 bags
of Wellness TruFood Baked Blends for cats
and 1,000 boxes of our Wellness TruFood
CocoChia Bakes cat treats to the group.
Our employees often volunteer at local
rescues such as the Salem Animal Rescue
League, Lowell Humane Society and the
Massachusetts Society for the Prevention of
Cruelty to Animals.
One organization’s story in particular
touched our hearts. We recently worked with
4 Paws For Ability, a nonprofit organization
that places service dogs with children with
disabilities and veterans. The organization
was connecting an Indiana family with their
newest family member, a service dog named
MC, who would help watch over their son,
who has autism.
To help the family provide for MC, we donated a lifetime supply of pet food. Knowing
the impact that MC will have on this family,
and that we’re able to help play a small role
in ensuring she’s able to protect the little boy
she cares for, is something we are proud and
honored to be a part of.
WORLD’S BEST CAT LITTER/
KENT PET GROUP
Jean Broders, brand manager
We started GiveLitter six years ago with a
simple idea: empower cat-loving fans everywhere to help donate free litter to the hardworking shelters that need it most. During
that time, 486,000 pounds of litter has been
donated, providing more than 70,000 cats
with a month’s worth of litter.
Our donations have been large, but the
impact on the lives of shelter cats is larger,
and our work isn’t done. We’re out to do even
more with GiveLitter through a superfun
game and a goal of donating 90,000 pounds
of litter this year alone.
Sarah Stone, director of marketing
Our company is actively
involved with Dogs 4 Diabetics
(D4D), which trains service dogs
that can alert a diabetic patient
about a potentially dangerous
drop in blood sugar before it’s
detectable by medical instru-
ments—all with their amazing noses.
We love that dogs trained by D4D go
home with one of Worldwise’s luxurious
memory beds as well as toys from goDog
and Hear Doggy. The greatest part is the
tangible benefits of seeing dog and patient
We also provide product for D4D’s
raffles and auctions, we sponsor and attend
their events, we donate product and funds
to their drives, and we use our social media
channels, PR and marketing resources to
spread the word about its events, drives
For a complete list of pet
