Learn about all the ways we give back to our community & partnering Pet Rescues!
One of Gaia Provides main goals is to make a significant community impact.
So when our products hit the shelves in 2019 we wasted no time and immediately started giving back. Through the power of social media, we began giving back to the rescue pet community by donating our CBD products, to rescue pets in need. Some of these were rescues recommended to us, while others had stories that caught our attention and hearts.
Our support for rescue pets has grown tremendously over the years, contributing both monetarily and with product donations, we have even started to sponsor a new rescue pet almost monthly!
On occasion we get direct emails or social messages requesting or nominating a rescue pet or community pet in need, and in some instances, contributions are made from us reaching out to the organizations directly when our team sees a rescue pet in dire need of help.
At the end of the day, we value the importance of Community and our role in helping rescue animals in need. We know it takes a village and we want to be a part of that village.
Because we believe EVERY pet should have access to a better quality of life.
Our Impact on the Rescue
1% of sales donated to rescue animals in need
For every order you place, we donate 1% of sales between our three partnering Rescue groups, Hope of Deliverance, Hounds & Heroes, and Lend-A-Bone — registered as 501(c)(3) non-profit animal rescue groups. Each of them founded by 3 amazing women with very different stories, but one common thread — to help the most vulnerable.
Why do we help support rescue organizations? The sobering reality is a lot of the pets saved by our partnering rescue groups are there because of abusive or neglectful situations and suffer from severe trauma, often needing serious medical care and in some cases requiring long term care. Most pets entering a shelter experience environmentally induced stress, may need medical assistance, and/or require behavioral training.
Seeing heartbreaking stories of pets suffering from physical and mental abuse, senior pets struggling with mobility, and stressed pets trying to adapt to their new foster or shelter environment, we were moved to help positively impact these rescue pets' journey to a better life.
1% of all sales donated
Split evenly between our three partner rescues, this is a monetary donation given to each rescue, which they have the discretion to use funds to pay for medical expenses, supplies, training, and/or other expenses they have a need for. Financial donations from sales are made by the 2nd quarter of the following fiscal year.
Pet Chews for a Cause
Our Pet Chews for a Cause Campaign is an ongoing crowdsourcing campaign, open to the public - we offer rescue which the public can purchase. These rescue packs help sponsor a rescue pup in need by providing 1 bag of chewables to one of our partnering rescues. These donations are made directly to the rescue of your choice and are available for purchase in our online store. All donations ship at the end of each month.
Underdog Sponsorship Program
Sponsorship is periodically offered to individual rescue pets who have suffered recent medical emergencies. These rescue pets may be part of our rescue partner network, may be nominated for sponsorship, and in some cases are from various rescue groups around the country. While in recovery from medical emergencies, products are 100% sponsored free of charge to the rescue or foster.
