Hey Fox Fam!
As many of you know, here at Arctic Fox we’re passionately dedicated to animals! Aside from making great hair color that is vegan & cruelty free, we donate 15% of all of our profits to animal charities who are just as dedicated to ending animal abuse (read more about this here). Another thing we love to do is volunteer with our local organizations as much as possible!
Recently, we got the opportunity to spend some time with the people and pups over at The Animal Pad! This life-saving organization rescues dogs from high-kill shelters all over Southern California and Mexico, placing them into foster homes to give them a fighting chance to find their forever home. It’s organizations like this that help keep animals off the streets and quite literally save their lives. That allows them to end up right where they belong - in our arms!
The AF Team met up with a few foster dogs and their caretakers to help out with their adoption event in Del Mar! We got to meet the most lovable pups: Canelo, Dobry, and Joshua. They all had very distinct personalities and had us laughing from minute one!
On their website they explain their mission clearly: "Millions of dogs are put to sleep every year in shelters across America and TAP aims to greatly reduce the amount of dogs that are euthanized every day by educating the public on the importance of spay/neutering their pets, adopting vs. buying, and treating dogs with the love and respect they deserve."
On top of playing with the pups and helping with adoption services, we got the chance to learn more about the rewarding and difficult work it takes to rescue these dogs from shelters and prepare them for their new loving homes. Fostering pets is an important part of a lot of rescue organizations, but at TAP they go above and beyond! The foster families are in charge of setting up meet and greets, getting the dogs to and from the adoption events, and socializing their foster pups after a lifetime of hardship. If you're in the area and want to look into becoming a foster family, check their page here for more info. To see the pets available for adoption you can visit their adoption page here!
At the end of the day, we know how much love and hard work it takes to run adoption programs and events! That’s why it’s so important to donate - be it time, money, or even just a good belly rub every now and then!
xoxo, Alyssa and the AF Team
