I just discovered the FunkyMutt shop on Etsy, and I’m in love, especially with their tagline ….
The story behind their online store is truly a labor of love –
“How did Funky Mutt begin? A rather simple question that I am often asked, and I always smile as a preface to the answer: “With a GREAT cause”… 200 collars were made by Funky Mutt to donate for a local ‘no kill’ animal shelter in desperate need of a new location. The rescue needed to be rescued. Their current location was very unsuitable, as it often flooded, became infested with every know insect to man, and was in a terrible location. The volunteers were able to raise over $20,000 dollars in one day for the cause, and needless to say, they (the shelter organization) found their new home! With that said, Funky Mutt (having sold all 200+ collars) began it’s operation. The orders were pouring in. Three sewing machines later, an addition for a studio, and countless hours of research/development, Funky Mutt was on it’s way!”
