About

The Little Red Dog, Inc. is conducting a shoe collection drive From September 1, 2016 to October 5, 2016 to raise funds for The Little Red Dog TLRD will earn funds based on the number of pairs collected as Funds2Orgs will purchase all of the donated goods. Those dollars will benefit TLRD and its mission to save more dogs. Anyone can help by donating gently worn, used or new shoes.

All donated shoes will then be redistributed throughout the Funds2Orgs network of microenterprise partners in developing nations. Funds2Orgs helps impoverished people start, maintain and grow businesses in countries such as Haiti, Honduras and other nations in Central America and Africa. Proceeds from the shoe sales are used to feed, clothe and house their families. Additionally, shoe donations will reduce what goes into landfills.

"We are excited about our shoe drive," said PJ Rosch, CEO & Top Dog at The Little Red Dog, Inc. "We know that most people have extra shoes in their closets they would like donate to us and help those less fortunate become self-sufficient. It’s a win-win for everyone" Added Rosch.

By donating shoes to The Little Red Dog, Inc. the shoes will be given a second chance and make a difference in people’s lives, and you will be saving dogs lives along with helping us to care and feed for them until they find a forever home.

You can make an EVEN bigger impact by downloading Walk for a Dog app on your IPhone or Android and search for The Little Red Dog. Every time you walk or run, or play Pokémon Go, you open the app, tap on start walking, and money is donated to TLRD, and it is completely free to the user!

We will be collecting shoes at adoption events and other collection points. Our first drive will be Saturday, August 20, 2016 at the San Juan Capistrano Petsmart 33963 Doheny Park Rd, San Juan Capistrano, CA 92675. Please do not drop shoes off there before or after August 20, 2016; for more collection locations email info@thelittlereddog.com

Please note we cannot take broken, torn or very worn shoes. Donations should be gently worn, used or new shoes. Thank you for your help! We will be collecting shoes until October 5, 2016.

Consider asking your company to do a shoe drive for The Little Red dog at your place of business. The more shoes donated, the more money we raise, the more we rasie, the more we save!
