Rocky Mountain Dog will be introducing a new leash very, very soon called "Donated With Love".
When you purchase one of these leashes, Rocky Mountain Dog will donate another leash to an animal rescue here in Alberta or across Canada.
Rescues are under a lot of pressure since requests for pet adoptions have dropped as more people return to offices or go back to work full time following the height of the pandemic while the number of dogs requiring adoption and fostering has not declined.
We will announce the launch of this new leash in a couple of weeks and you will have our guarantee every purchase you make, we will donate a leash on your behalf to a rescue!
On the "Donated with Love" leash product page we will track all our donations and where the leashes are going, we are super excited!
One of our goals in 2023 is to focus on helping rescues and organizations that help dogs in need. You can help as well by reaching out to a local rescue or shelter in your area and:
- Donate, or
Heart Mountain Rescue
In the winter of 2023, Rocky Mountain Dog donated over $700 worth of dog gear to Heart Mountain Rescue to help reduce costs outfitting all the dogs with gear.
Heart Mountain Rescue is a not-for-profit organization based in Alberta, run entirely by volunteers.
Angus from Heart Mountain Rescue
Their mission is to find furever homes for dogs in need, to prevent overpopulation with spay/neuter clinics & to promote the welfare of dogs through education and advocacy.
They are always looking for fosters, people to adopt and donations for foster pet packages.
Calgary Human Society
In 2022, Rocky Mountain Dog donated over 50 bags of dog food ($4,000, 1875 lbs) to the Calgary Humane Society, we know every time we dropped food off for them it was gone within a couple of days.

Wookie and his mom
They help individuals with pet food hampers, homeless pet packs, vaccines and vet bills and grooming assistance, since 2021 they have given out over 16,000 pet food hampers.
Last year we donated over $600 worth of dog gear and treats to contribute to their food hampers and pet packs.
There are many other rescues and non-profit organizations we've helped out but we haven't been keeping track, we will do a better job at that going forward!
