Fur Should Fly Mission

Fur Should Fly is inspired by our rescue dogs Sherman, Grey Bear, Otis, Ralphie and Gladys.  Grey Bear, our beloved, beautiful dog with an amazing rescue story is pictured above with his best friend, Otis.

Our mission is simple: to assist organizations and businesses to create a sustainable source of income providing the best possible life for all animals through the sale of our products.

Calling all animal lovers

If you love them all, help us celebrate them by selling our products. In turn, our Fur Should Fly community of animal-lovers carrying our products can donate a portion of their net profits locally to support their rescues and shelters.  Animal-related businesses will be able to create a fund for clients who cannot afford a medical procedure, or perhaps require a bag of special food or a day at the spa.

 

Please take a moment to read our more in-depth mission statement:

When you sell our products as a part of the Fur Should Fly community, a portion goes back into local and national animal-related needs.

  • A portion of our yearly net profits are donated on a national level to Best Friends Animal Society.  As a business fundraiser of Best Friends Animal Society, Fur Should Fly is honored to help support their good work.  Our goal is to be able to increase this amount over time as the business grows.
  • Best Friends Animal Society is a national animal welfare organization focused on ending the killing of dogs and cats in America’s shelters.  A leader in the no-kill movement, Best Friends runs the nation’s largest no-kill sanctuary for companion animals as well as life saving programs in partnership with rescue groups and shelters across the country. Best Friends believes that, together, we can end the killing and “Save Them All”.
  • Featured Sanctuary/Rescue   Throughout the year, sanctuaries or rescues will be featured on our website. An additional portion of our net profits raised during the time they are featured will be donated to support their good work in communities across the country.

As a business, when you carry our stocked card rack and animal-themed products, we ask you to participate by contributing a portion of your net profits back into your own animal-related community or your business to directly benefit animals.

Eddie’s wheels is using the net profits from the sale of our cards to start a fund at their place of business. The fund will be available to help facilitate the purchase of a cart for those needing financial assistance.

  • As a lover of animals, if you are considering monetarily contributing to a shelter, consider donating a stocked card rack, providing a sustainable source of income through the ongoing sale of our greeting cards. Your local shelter can provide you with a donation letter for tax purposes.
  • If you, or a group of your friends or family want to donate a card rack together, we are happy to include a bronze plaque honoring your contribution, which will be attached to the card rack.

We are about to launch our lines of unique gifts of greeting cards and wearable art. The greeting cards include lines of cards that are either humorous, refreshingly cheeky, heart-felt, or just with beautiful imagery. The wearable art includes clothing for all ages:

  • T-shirts for babies, children, youth and adults
  • Aprons  
  • Tote Bags

Fur Should Fly and our team thank you so much for your support and love for all of the precious animals in need of nurturing, care and forever-homes.

We hope our products bring you much laughter and joy!
