2% of EVERY product we sell is donated to the Planet Dog Foundation. Not a percentage of the profits. Not a percentage of one product. 2% of EVERY sale we make. PLUS, 100% of the profits from the sale of our Orbee-Tuff Glow for Good balls (in both sizes - 3 inch and 2.5 inch) go directly to the Planet Dog Foundation.
We have donated over $1 million to non-profits all over the country. Your purchases literally help change lives for people and the dogs who help them.
This year the Planet Dog Foundation gave out $103,620 to non-profit organizations that are training and placing dogs working to help people in need all over the country. Here are just a few highlights:
- Dax, a Search and Rescue dog working with the National Disaster Search Dog Foundation, was trained and placed with a $10,000 PDF grant. Dax was deployed in November, 2014 to Buffalo, NY in the wake of the devastating snowstorms to help with rescue efforts.
- PDF partnered with the Spirit of Blue Foundation to fund the acquisition and placement of an explosives detection dog for the Kane County, IL Sheriff's Office.
- A donation was made to the medical fund of Bruno, a police dog from Anaheim, CA who was shot in the face in the line of duty.
- The Courthouse Dogs Foundation received a donation to fund the dissemination of their best practices guide for dogs accompanying minors to court as they testify about trauma and abuse.
