The way we see it, running a business is a two-way street. With every 4Knines product sold, there’s an opportunity to give back to the pet community… so that is exactly what we do!
In the holiday spirit of giving this winter, we’d like to share a little about the incredible charities we contribute to. Each of these organizations is doing their part to ensure that every dog is fed, adopted, cared for, and loved.
Here’s a few of the many great charities that we’ve highlighted and supported:
When most people think about wonderful pet charities, one specific organization usually comes to mind: ASPCA, or the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. The ASPCA funds several programs around the United States to tackle problems such as animal homelessness and animal cruelty. Rescue and protection services provide pets with the support they need to survive and live happy lives.
Leave No Paws Behind
For those of your who have senior dogs, this charity is for you! Leave No Paws Behind specializes in providing rescue, adoption, and support services to senior dogs. In additional, the organization also provides the same care to dogs of all breeds and backgrounds. With their support, every senior dog can live out the rest of their days in happiness, comfort, and love.
Dogs on Deployment
Our brave military members already have so many obstacles to confront every day, both abroad and at home. This charity, Dogs on Deployment, makes sure taking care of their dog is not one of those obstacles. Using this organization, military members can connect with local volunteers to care for their pets while they are away on deployment. In addition, Dogs on Deployment also advocates for military pet owner rights, providing educational services for military pet owners, and helping military members financially care for their pets.
Canine Assistants is a nonprofit organization that matches service dogs to children and adults who have physical disabilities or other special needs. If you know someone with a service dog, you’re probably quite familiar with what an life changing impact they can have on the lives of people with physical ailments and disabilities. This charity provides a wide range of service, companion, and seizure-response dogs to people who need them.
National Mill Dog Rescue
Thousands of dogs spend their lives in cages, only used for breeding purposes so puppy mills can make a profit. When the dogs cannot breed any longer, they are discarded in auctions or left alone without a loving home. The National Mill Dog Rescue offers crucial rescue, rehabilitation, and adoption services for these dogs. The charity also helps to educate people about the cruelties in the commercial dog industry and re-home pets after rehabilitation.
Here’s the full list of charities we’re proud to have showcased and donated to this year:
- Puppy Rescue Mission
- Raven Pines Dog Rescue
- Arizona Animal Welfare League
- Retrieving Freedom Inc
- Frosted Faces Foundation
- Pilots N Paws
- Dogs for Heroes
- Friends For Live
- Marley’s Mutts
- Amazing Aussies
- Dobies and Little Paws Rescue
- Streetdog Foundation
- Shadow’s Fund
- Snooty Giggles
- Noah’s Arks Rescue

Each of these organizations inspires us to do our part as a business and support the pet community. Want to give back and get an amazing present for the dog lover in your life? Purchase any one of our washable Dog Car Seat Covers or waterproof Dog Bed Liners and we will donate $1 to the ASPCA.
