Every time we run a successful teespring campaign, 10% of all profits will be donated toward bringing an animal out of a high kill shelter and into the safe hands of the Homeward Trails Animal Rescue located in Arlington, VA USA. Thankfully, we reached our goal during our last campaign and have decided to help sponsor Yogi, a one year old black lab, pit bull mix who has been described as being a calm and sweet dog. A total of $150 must be raised to save Yogi's life and he is in dire need of our help as time is very quickly running out for him. It is extremely troubling that black pets are more likely to be overlooked in shelters for numerous reasons; the stupidity and ignorance of people who believe black animals are associated with bad luck, they are also often viewed as more mundane, dull looking and less photogenic than animals with more color. Additionally, it is a proven fact that that black pets have the highest euthanization rate in shelters because of unfounded misperceptions and preconceived notions. In order to re-launch our last Million People For Pets teespring campaign (hoodies and tee shirts) and to further help Yogi, 14 more shirts need to be pre-ordered so that we can be guaranteed of going to print. Orders can be placed at: Please consider donating to Yogi's cause in any way you can so that his life can be saved. All animals deserve to live a life filled with unconditional love and one by one, we can all make a difference. -Heather Steall, Million People For Pets.

He reminds me of my black lab/dalmation mix I had a long time ago named Bandit. Such a sweet face and I will try to do what I can for him.

$109 still needs to be raised to help this baby. You are so wonderful. Thank you!!!!!!! -Heather Steall


I'm happy to know you have saved the life of an innocent dog named Yogi. The dog seems so weak on that picture. Good thing you have rescued him. Anyway, I don't understand that there are people who think that black pets signifies bad luck and tragedy. I believe tragedy and bad luck don't have something to do with black pets. It is actually unfair for those poor innocent pets.

Yogi may not be the cutest dog you will ever see, but he is lovely and has his own charm. In behalf of the organization, I want to thank all people who were selfless to donate everything that they have for the welfare of Yogi. I am sure these pet lovers were touched by Yogi;s story and that motivated them to help the organization for Yogi's treatment. If only Yogi can talk, I am sure he will utter all the words that he may say just to say how thankful he is!
