The proceeds came from purchases of Camron the Camo Gator, the plush toy that launched the Zippy Charity line. Its exterior is designed with a camouflage pattern to embody the spirit of the military, and it features a Grunterz Squeaker, layers of durable fabric and ZippyPaws’ exclusive Z-Stitching, used to withstand rough and tough play.
“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.”
ZippyPaws created Zippy Charity to give back to non-profit organizations. Each toy in the Zippy Charity line is uniquely designed with symbolic meaning for each non-profit and supports its cause. Whenever a customer purchases a Zippy Charity line toy, $1 is donated to support the organization. As the company grows, ZippyPaws will continue to partner with more non-profits and look for more ways to give back to the community.
