To the Rescue!
In my search for new product lines, I'm always on the lookout for young start-ups and/or companies that give back to good causes and charitable organizations. This week we brought in leashes from Resq/Co. The "Resq" is actually pronounced "rescue" which leads (no pun intended) to the fact they really do rescue animals.
One leash equals one donation which equals one life saved. Ten percent of every purchase goes to animal shelters and animal rescue facilities. The company donates to a different shelter every month and asked me to let them know of any animal shelters that are in need of help. Hint: Seriously, let me know of any animal shelters that might benefit and I'm more than happy to pass the info on to Resq/Co.
But back to the leashes....they come in two diameters, 3/8" for the smaller pooches, 1/2" for the big guys, and the length varies from 4 to 4 1/2 feet as a result of being handmade (in the USA). The three strand premium grade line features a five tuck hand spliced handle with secured ends. Each leash is outfitted with a solid brass swivel clip that will withstand the elements and evade corrosion, a hand-stamped leather tag, and a solid brass key ring for holding waste bags, tags, keys. We currently have stock in the natural and navy colors.
On a personal note, I'd like to thank Finn (and his Mom, Lyn) for posing as our poochi model (get it...poochi instead of Gucci...what do you expect? I was a fashion designer for 25 years). He's a very handsome boy, I'm sure you'll all agree!
