We also use products in our home and studio because they are pawsome – in that they are both great products and that they give back to others:

SaviourLife – we use saviour life training treats in the studio.  They’re Australian made, dogs love them and we love that they donate 50% of profits to rescue groups.

Thankyou – we use Thankyou’s body care range and water in the studio (and personally enjoy their museli and bars).  A social enterprise, Thankyou donates 100% of profits towards ending global poverty.

Who Gives a Crap – We use the toilet paper and paper towels in the studio and our home.  They donate 50% of their profits to WaterAid to build toilets and improve sanitation in the developing world.

If you run, work in or volunteer with a pet or animal based not-for-profit organisation and would like our assistance with then please get in touch via our form here.

Before contacting us for assistance, please:

  • Ensure that it’s for an animal based charity.  We’re going to be of the most assistance to those who align with what we are about – the love and appreciation we have for dogs, pets and animals.  If it’s not, then we’re going to unfortunately say ‘no’ to your request.  
  • Double-check that your organisation doesn’t already have a photographer that they’re working with.  
  • Understand that we can’t support all requests – we receive many requests to support or donate to fundraising activities and while we would love to assist them all it’s not always possible.
