Finley’s, creators of all-natural dog treats with a mission to combat the more than 80% unemployment rate for people with disabilities, announced an e-commerce partnership with Target to expand the reach of their products nationally. Finley’s products are available now to order online at target.com, providing easy access to the growing lineup of dog treats to virtually every region in the U.S.
This announcement comes on the heels of an expanded distribution launch with Chewy.com in June of 2020. With the industry’s most trusted manufacturing, distribution, and retail partners behind them, Finley’s is more capable than ever before to positively impact individuals with disabilities across the country.
Founded in Minneapolis in 2016 by two former special education teachers on a mission to bring community and opportunity to people with disabilities, Finley’s donates 50 percent of net-profits to initiatives that provide skills training, paid work experiences and a path to independence for individuals with disabilities around the country. Through its Ambassador Program and focus on inclusive hiring practices, Finley’s aims to be a leader in corporate social responsibility by not just believing people of all abilities can be valuable assets to any organization, but actually making it happen. Finley's Ambassador program gives back to the disability community through employment readiness, health & wellness efforts, transportation, community advocacy and education programs. To date, sales of their dog treats have allowed Finley’s to donate more than $70,000 and create more than 7,000 hours of paid employment opportunities for people with disabilities.
“We are thrilled that our partnership with Target.com offers our products to a wider consumer base online,” said Kyle Gallus, CEO + Co-Founder of Finley’s Barkery. “Our expanded reach allows us to allocate more resources committed to supporting inclusive initiatives for people with disabilities throughout the United States.”
