It’s that time again! As part of our Say No, Go Faux initiative, we donated to animal rescues to support animals in need. For us, vegan isn’t just a catchy tag line to add to our website. It is the way we guide our business. In 2015 we made a commitment to donate to animal rescues in the form of fur bedding and monetary donations. Since then, with the support of our amazing customers, we’ve donated approximately $23,000 to animal rescues across the country. In addition to donating $16,407 to other organizations that help babies and children.
Check out some of the organizations we donated to this quarter:
Save our Life: A volunteer run cat rescue and sanctuary in Arizona.
2 Blondes All Breed Rescue: An organization dedicated to rescuing dogs from overpopulated, high-kill shelters.
Save One Soul: give temporary safe harbor to homeless dogs as they await their forever homes. Find out how you can help save lives and get free doggie kisses along the way!
Trio Animal Foundation: A charitable organization that pays for the medical bills of some of the sickest, abused pets left behind at open access shelters.
We believe that Faux Fur is the only way to go. May it be a fur collar on your new jacket, the lining of those great winter boots, or your stash of photography props, faux fur is clearly the better choice. It’s less of a hassle and most often it’s even better quality!
Most think that when purchasing wool items, no animals are harmed in the creation because it is natural for sheep to simply get a “haircut”. PETA has gone behind the scenes to show the true conditions of these farms and they have discovered that handlers at sheep farms around the world are just as cruel as those at fur farms. Sheep are no longer just getting a haircut. They are being violently handled, injured, and even killed for their wool. Due to this, we ask you to please reconsider when you see that an item is made with real wool ! If you’d like to learn more about the reality of the wool industry, take a moment to view this article and video that shows the brutal reality that these innocent animals are forced to endure.
When you purchase from Custom Photo Props, you can feel good knowing that no cruelty went into the making of the products. Thank you for being part of our family and helping use with this amazing cause!
