It’s no secret that we love animals here at Free People. Our home office is filled with pups of every kind, and they light up our days with the simple wag of a tail. So of course when it comes to the pet products we sell, we want to make sure we’re working with vendors who are just as in love with animals as we are. Today I wanted to give a big shout out to Found My Animal. They’re a pet accessories company who handcrafts their product in Brooklyn – and they’re huge supporters of adopting, just like we are!
The company was actually founded by two incredible humans who met one another on a street in Brooklyn while walking their rescue dogs — both named Walter! Their products are handmade from the finest materials – and built to last. We have a ton of their accessories available on our site, from beautiful overdyed collars and leashes to adorable plaid pouches, and even a collapsible canvas water bowl.
Found My Animal’s mission is to promote animal adoption by letting your pet wear your values. Their site states, “By encouraging rescue over purchase, we support animal welfare by asking pets and their owners to help deliver our simple, important message.” Each leash has an individually-numbered tag (so no two are the same!), which allows them to keep track of all the animals their customers have helped thus far!
Another reason we love them is because they’re constantly supporting animal rescue organizations — like 2 Million Dogs, Big Dogs Huge Paws, Rock and Rawhide, Snooty Giggles Dog Rescue… the list goes on and on. And as if that weren’t enough, they currently have a pup featured on their site in order to find her a home. My heart is melting. Thank you, Found My Animal, for all that you do!
