How Does Our Buy One Give One Program Work?
When a dog rescue reaches out and asks for dog leashes, collars or toys, many volunteers and donators will go to their local pet store and purchase one at retail to donate. While this is a great gesture, we felt that there was a better way to support rescues.
Because we donate an identical product for every product purchased, dog lovers can now donate to their rescues while shopping for their own pet. The dog owner does not need to do anything additional to support their rescue. They simply purchase products as they normally would. This relieves them of spending additional money and if they wish, they can donate that money directly to the rescue. Also, because we hope that rescues will eventually get enough dog accessories that it will free up their funds for other important items such as dog food and veterinarian bills.
We will keep expanding the number of rescues that we donate to as our sales increase. We hope to implement a system so that customers can choose their favorite rescue to receive the donation in the future.
At the end of every month, we tally up the number of products sold. Based on that number, we decide on how many rescues we can donate to for that month. For example, in March, we sold about 5,000 total units. So we sent 200 rescues, 25 leashes, collars and toys each totaling 5,000.
Update: We are now sending donations on a weekly basis! We announce which rescues will receive donations on our Facebook page weekly so please follow us there to get up to date news!
How Do We Pick Which Rescues Get Donations Each Month?
We have a list now of over 700 rescues to donate to. We donate down our list until each rescue has received a donation and then we go back to the top of our list. In special cases, we will donate to rescues out of turn based on their needs.
How Does A Rescue Get Onto Our List?
We are familiar with many rescues in our area and they were part of the reason that Max and Neo was founded. Other rescues have been recommended to us by our customers. If you know of a rescue that is need of donations, you can submit their information through our suggest a rescue page.
Please help us make this program a success. Our products are the highest quality and our prices are fair. By purchasing our products, you will be helping many dog rescues throughout the United States.
