ZippyPaws Makes Donation to Mission K9 Rescue
ZippyPaws recently donated $32,898 to Mission K9 Rescue.
Two years ago, Chino, Calif.-based ZippyPaws created the philanthropic line, Zippy Charity, designed to give back to nonprofit organizations. Each toy in the Zippy Charity line is designed with symbolic meaning for each nonprofit organization in addition to supporting their cause. The first toy that launched the Zippy Charity line was Camron the Camo Gator.
A year ago, ZippyPaws partnered with Mission K9 Rescue, a nonprofit committed to rescuing, reuniting, re-homing, rehabilitating, and helping to repair retired working dogs that have served mankind in some capacity.
The funds being donated from Camron the Camo Gator plush will support Mission K9 Rescue as they continue to dedicate themselves to servicing the nation’s retired and retiring working dogs.
“Your donation will be used to provide transport home from abroad for up to 10 working dogs and the remainder will be use for the dogs vet care and rehabilitation,” said Bob Bryant, co-founder of Mission K9 Rescue. “There is a huge workforce of service dogs worldwide. At any given time, there are dogs that need to come home but can’t because they are hindered in one way or another. Complications can arise from age, health, or even finances and often make it harder for the dogs to be transported. Mission K9 raises awareness by growing a worldwide network of supporters in an effort to bring these dogs home.”
Camron the Camo Gator’s exterior is designed with a camouflage pattern to embody the spirit of the military. It features a Grunterz Squeaker, layers of durable fabric, and ZippyPaws’ exclusive Z-Stitching—used to withstand rough and tough play. Whenever a customer purchases a Zippy Charity line toy, $1 will be donated to support nonprofit organizations that better the lives of animals.
