My business is called Pawsitive Collars. I founded Pawsitive Collars with the mission of providing durable pet products while also helping shelters in need.
The products we sell are all developed in response to the most needed items from rescues donation lists.
I have owned many rescue dogs over the years and they have been the most loving amazing dogs. I wanted to start a business that could give back to them!
We have only been in business a month, so we’ve still got a long list of shelters we want to contribute to in the future!
Our first donation went to one of our favorite local shelters; Austin Pet’s Alive. They have been a driving factor in Austin becoming a no-kill city. Our next donation will be going to the Austin Humane Society.
We are starting with shelters in Texas and will be expanding outward as we grow.
We have so many products in the works! Our next products will be martingale collars and double handle traffic leashes.
From there we will expand into durable dog toys to keep our furry friends company while searching for their forever homes. We also have plans to offer pet grooming products such as shampoo, balm, and grooming brushes.
Thanks Steve, it’s always awesome to talk with pet-oriented businesses – especially ones that have such a great cause behind them!
Do you have any dog-related businesses you think we should interview next? Tell us in the comments!
