Under the Weather donates a portion of every sale to their Ruffy Rescue Fund, named after the dog who inspired the company. The funds are used to help cover the transportation and spay/neuter of pets from overpopulated areas of the U.S. to Vermont for adoption. The Ruffy Rescue Fund has helped save the lives of over 2,000 shelter dogs.
New shelter data casts doubt on whether the pet population and pet ownership are truly growing.
While the pandemic caused unprecedented suffering worldwide in 2020, the disruptions to dogs, cats and other pets adoption numbers may normalize in 2021.
