Stocky & Dee’s Rainbow Collection Raises Money For Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home
Originally launched at the start of the first lockdown, inspired by the NHS rainbow image, Stocky & Dee recognised that dog homes like many businesses and charities will be struggling to raise funds to care for their animals through their usual fund raising events and practices. The Rainbow Dog Collars created and raised over £1500 for Mrs. Murrays Dog Home in Aberdeen.
Stocky & Dee are relaunching the design which is now featured in an entire collection of products including collar, lead, bow and harness. 100% of profits from the sale of these products will be donated to Edinburgh Dog & Cat Home, raising over £400 in the initial few weeks of launch.
Mairi Robb, founder of Stocky & Dee said “we’re delighted to be raising much needed funds for such a wonderful charity, it’s a big part of what we do at Stocky & Dee and it’s a program we hope to grow further into the future. We visited the home recently to donate some collars to their residents and we were just overwhelmed with emotion. They care for these gorgeous animals so well and truly want the very best for each and every one of them.”
Not only do Stocky & Dee run their Charity Rainbow Collection, they also have a program called Pup-Cycle where they encourage customers to return their puppies outgrown dog collars that may well end up in landfill. These collars are then up-cycled where necessary and donated to dog homes in the UK.
Katie Kennedy, Development Executive at Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home said, “Stocky and Dee are a wonderful business to work with, and we all love their stunning products here at the Home (including our furry residents). We are so grateful to be one of their chosen charities for their Rainbow Collection partnership, and we think it is great that they are supporting a variety of charities throughout the year. With no regular government income, partnerships like these are essential for the Home to continue providing our services of rescuing, reuniting, reaching out and rehoming stay or abandoned pets.”
