"Planet Dog" Gives BackPublished December 9, 2008
Planet Dog recently re-designed their website, and added an Interaction section. I really like this company not only for their innovative doggy products (that’s Magic with some of their Orbee Tuff ® “fruit” puzzle toys he loves); they also give back by donating a percentage of every purchase to the Planet Dog Foundation, which promotes and celebrates programs that enable dogs to serve and support their best friends. In turn, it is donated back to non-profit canine service programs nationwide. "As a small company doing big things, our goal will always be to improve the world around us by giving back to our community, our workforce and the environment," says Alex Fisher, Planet Dog's Founder. “Our internal mantra is ‘think globally, act doggedly’. The mantra helps keep us focused on the higher cause for which we entered this industry,” adds Fisher. Magic with his Fruit Toys The new Interaction section offers information about product safety, animal welfare and reducing your dog's carbon paw print. There’s a monthly e-newsletter “Woof”, and a national public service campaign promoting doggy adoptions. You can even submit a favorite picture to the “Canine Moment” section. If featured on the homepage as the Canine Moment, you receive a $200 shopping spree at planetdog.com. Since January of 2006, Planet Dog Foundation has given more than $350,000 in grants and in-kind donations that support and celebrate canine service programs nationwide.
