Our Current Initiative

This fall, our chosen cause is Living Beyond Breast Cancer. This organization works with breast cancer patients and their caregivers through diagnosis, treatment, and recovery. Founded in 1991, LBBC aims to provide relevant information to patients based on their personal experience with breast cancer. It also supports health care studies with a particular focus on age, ethnicity, sexual orientation, and diagnosis. For this partnership, we are launching a pink toy bone to support LBBC and their incredibly important work.

  • For the latter half of the summer of 2021, we supported Living Free Animal Sanctuary with our limited edition Seaver the Seagull Knottie™. This remarkable organization saves dogs and cats who are scheduled for euthanization at public shelters. With 155 acres in Southern California that is also home to an immersive equine therapy program for veterans, Living Free gives a vast, happy sanctuary to second-chance animals.

  • In May and June of 2021, HuggleHounds® saluted Humane Rescue Alliance, a not-for-profit organization in D.C. that provides direct rescue and care of animals in need. After merging with St. Hubert’s animal welfare center in New Jersey, HRA has become the first regional, community-based, multi-state animal welfare organization in the nation. HRA promotes compassion and encourages people to find joy, comfort, and companionship through the love and appreciation of animals. Remarkably, last year, HRA saved 15,211 lives through adoption and transport, distributed more than 450,000 pet meals to low-income families, and HRA’s field officers responded to more than 20,000 calls for help in NJ and DC. HRA protects animals, supports families, and advocates for positive change to create a world where all animals can thrive.

  • For Autism Awareness Month in April, we partnered with NEADS World Class Service Dogs, which provides service dogs to children with autism and other developmental disabilities. NEADS Service Dogs are trained in a variety of tasks that can address a range of symptoms, behaviors and issues caused by a child’s autism. This task work can help with the child’s socialization skills, behavioral skills, and fine and gross motor skills. NEADS Service Dogs for Children with Autism are selected for their special chemistry with children. All NEADS Service Dogs are gentle, tolerant and well-trained, but each has its own personality that can be matched with an appropriate child.

  • Our March donation was directed to VCA Charities, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to helping pets in need receive access to care. Since 2005, VCA Charities has provided free veterinary services, medication, food, and financial support to more than 100 nonprofit shelters and animal welfare organizations in local communities and across the nation. Together with individuals like you, VCA Charities makes a better world for pets-and the people who love them.

  • In February 2021, our team selected House With A Heart Senior Pet Sanctuary. Using two seasonal heart-shaped toys, it served to remind us that while February may be National Heart Health month, there are efforts underway all across the country to mend the hearts of pets by giving them a healthy, heart-filled home. Sanctuary residents are dogs and cats who have lost families and homes, often due to an owner’s passing and, because of their advanced age & medical condition, have less chance of being adopted. Once a dog becomes a resident, they have a loving home for life. The Sanctuary’s mission is to provide a ‘’Helping Hand” for senior pets.

  • Our first HuggleCause™ partner was our friends at Warrior Canine Connection using our Limited Edition Labrador Retriever toys. These two adorable canines—one Black & one Yellow—were only available for a short time as they debuted our HuggleCause™. WCC is especially important to HuggleHounds®, as we’ve worked with them for a number of years and greatly admire their mission. A pioneering organization that utilizes clinically-based Animal Assisted Therapy to help wounded Warriors reconnect with life, their families, their communities and each other, WCC enlists recovering Warriors in a therapeutic mission of learning to train service dogs for their fellow Veterans. Stay tuned as we plan an exciting return of WCC-pups in 2022!
