If you couldn't tell from a quick tour around our website, we love animals here at Boredwalk! From dogs to cats to desert tortoises (yes, you read that right) our team adores our companion animals! After a long day of designing, printing, packing, email writing, and answering customer service emails & messages there are few things we all enjoy more than opening our doors at home and being greeted by our fuzzy, feathered, and/or scaly friends!
That's why we'll be donating $1 to the Humane Society from the sale of all of our animal-themed shirts all month long! April is Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Month and what better way to honor our friends than by helping their friends?
Meredith and I are big proponents of rescue organizations in general: we adopted our dear departed Sadie (above) from Last Chance Animal Rescue in Jessup, MD, and our pride & joy Oliver (below) from the Maryland SPCA in Baltimore, MD.
Now, they can't all be strikes. Sometime you roll a gutterball, like we did with this bitey ingrate:
But you know what they say: you gotta take the bad with the good. Which we get, but I mean, come on — does the bad have to be soooo bad? J/k, Bigs (but not really. Stop biting us, dammit!)
Anyway, I digress — why the Humane Society? Well, you and the rest of our customers live all over the U.S. (and some outside it — hi, Benedikte!), and the Humane Society is a national organization that supports the mission of shelters and rescue organizations across the country via training, best practices, and funding, but largely by tackling animal cruelty and animal rights cases that are too big for local organizations to resolve by themselves — they're kinda like the animal rights National Guard.
We want to donate these funds to an entity that we're confident will be able to spread those dollars around in such a way that all our customers can know that they're chipping in locally in a small way, rather than going to a single local entity.
Anyway, if you (or your friends & family) are in need of some fresh animal lover shirts there's no better time to stock up while also supporting a worthy cause!
Peace, love, and purrs,
