Ways We Give Back

Rescue Strong was founded at the end of 2015 to give back and create quality goods that sparked conversation and awareness about animal rescue. We are an entire company of 1. We use 50% of proceeds to give back in straight donations, fund projects that give back even more, and support others who are trying to give back and raise awareness.
