Charity of the Month; support local charities while you shop!


Those who have followed us for a while now will already know all about our Charity of the Month initiative we set up in August last year. At the time, our business had just turned one and we were looking for ways in which we could give back to this amazing little community who has helped us leap forward!

Being die hard pet lovers (honestly, we both would love to have a little farm one day where we rescue animals of all shapes and sizes) we knew the only logical thing to do was to help out local pet charities! Thus Charity of the Month was born.

We decided that for every order we received containing a digital pet portrait, we would pull $5 aside into a donation pool to give to our chosen charity at the end of each month. So far our initiative has been a roaring success - since August 2021 we have partnered with 8 awesome local charities and managed to donate a whopping $6530 to date!

We also decided to create a pawtrait or two for each charity to help spread the word about a few of their rescues up for adoption in the hopes we can help them find their forever homes.

The below are the charities we have worked with so far - we recommend you check them out and give them a follow! They are all doing such incredibly amazing things for animals in need in our New Zealand community, and many of them have stores where you can purchase bits and bobs for your pets and donate at the same time:

This month; for our ninth charity, we have chosen Raining Rabbits Rescue, a small Auckland based not-for-profit rabbit rescue. These two cuties are Benjamin (left, a foster-fail who now belongs permanently with the Raining Rabbits team) and Arthur (right, the OG bunny who started it all). 

These guys have been having a super rough time lately, so we can't wait to see how much we can raise with your help to help them and all their bunnies in need out!
