It’s hard to believe that 1.5 million homeless cats and dogs are euthanized each year in the United States, a country that spends almost $70 billion annually on pet services and products. We decided to do something about it.
We started by developing management software for rescue organizations. Nonprofit rescue organizations keep euthanasia rates down by taking dogs and cats out of high-kill shelters and placing them in small kennels or fosters homes until they can be permanently adopted. Because they are often supported by donations and volunteers, these organizations typically lack the resources to expand their offerings or invest in helpful tools and technology.
The management software we developed helps rescues keep track of every animal in their facility—history, health information, preferences, and more. When an animal is adopted, this data is transferred to the new pet parents to help them care for their new family member. We provide this software to hundreds of rescue organizations for free—no upfront costs or maintenance charges.
But we wanted to do more—like give pet owners an easy way to support rescue animals. That was the inspiration behind Buddy’s, a pet speciality store stocked with premium pet food and supplies. For every purchase you make at Buddy’s, we donate 6% of the sale to the rescue organization of your choice.
