Animal Rescue Organizations We Support

At Pawsture, we are proud supporters of 4 animal rescue organizations that are close to our hearts. We believe that these organizations have made a significant difference to the lives of animals and we are eternally grateful for their dedication and commitment.

Upon checkout, you will be given the opportunity to choose which rescue organization you wish to support. Simply select the organization of choice and be confident to know that a portion of the total sale amount will be automatically processed by the Pledgeling Foundation using its Give & Grow app.

 

how it works

What if I don't select one of the 4 organizations provided?
We will automatically split the donation equally amongst all the rescue organizations we selected.

How and when do the charities receive the donation amounts?
We use the Give & Grow app by Pledgeling to manage our company's donations. After every calendar quarter, Give & Grow will calculate the donation amount we have contributed and send the donations to the rescue organizations within 45 days of the end of each calendar quarter.

Could you tell me how my purchase helps animals? What contribution does 5% make?
While we cannot specify what amount of your contribution goes to any specific impact with the rescue organization, we want to give you a rest assurance that the money collected is sent to our charity partners and helping animals in need.

With millions of animals in shelters, rescue organizations have a lot of mouths to feed. It is estimated that $1 could provide 20 meals. This means your purchase at Pawsture can help keep these pets fed while they wait to find their forever homes!

Sale Amount 5% Donation Meals to Feed Shelter Animals

$20 $1.00 20
$30 $1.50 30<
$40 $2.00 40<
$50 and more $2.50 50 and more

If I return an item, do the rescue organizations still get the donation?

Yes, of course. We are going to still make sure the organizations get the donation amount even if you return the item. That’s our pledge to pets and we take on that cost personally.

Tell me more about the organizations you support.
Yes, we're happy to share more (and thank you for asking). Take a look at the chart below and we hope it answers most of the questions you have. You can also CONTACT US for any additional inquiries about these organizations.
