This Giving December we are highlighting charities that are near and dear to the Liweli team. My name is Patrick and I am the brand guy here. For years I have been an ardent supporter of Mighty Mutts, a no-kill animal rescue organization dedicated to rescuing and rehabilitating dogs and cats. Their mission is to find permanent loving homes for all of their animals and it is how my pup Simone, a miniature long-haired dachshund, came into my family’s life. *Sad Alert* Before Mighty Mutts, Simone had been abused for breeding other dogs to sell in puppy stores. It’s sad that this happens, but it’s also a reason why you should #AdoptDontShop.
My partner, Catherine, has volunteered with this great organization for over 6 years and has a close relationship with their founder John. Originally we decided to foster Simone, but after bawling every time we had to part with her we quickly became #FosterFails and officially adopted her 2 years ago. We have never looked back.
Little did we know our little girl would change our lives so dramatically. She is the most affectionate, food motivated, and cuddliest pup we have ever met. She is tiny, yet long (yes we have measured and her paws are 1.5 inches wide and her legs only 4 inches high). She loves to travel, explore, and sleep. Every time we get our suitcases out she goes wild. Believe it or not, she is the happiest when hiking in the great outdoors, she loves jumping from rock to rock. She has truly made our lives and those around her happier.
As a member of Team Liweli, I am excited that we have dedicated the entire month of December to offer our customers the opportunity to give $10 to the charity of their choice, on us, with every $49+ Liweli purchase. This December I will be giving to Mighty Mutts and I cannot speak more highly of this organization because after all, my family is now complete thanks to Simone.
