Tongue-in-Cheek Tees Benefit Rescue Dogs

We love Animal Hearted’s cheeky tees! Plus, 25 percent of proceeds benefit rescue and shelter pups.

You can never have too many T-shirts when you spend your days hanging out at dog parks and playing marathon rounds of fetch with your pooch. And they’re all the more fun when they have something important yet cheeky to say. Take these Animal Hearted designs with taglines like “All I Care About is Dogs and Like 3 People,” “Vote Dogs,” and “One Dog Short of Crazy.”

Made in a variety of cuts — from slim fit and classic tees to racerback and unisex tanks — the shirts are made of 100-percent pre-shrunk ring-spun cotton and cotton-polyester blends. Besides being incredibly comfortable to wear, they simply make you feel good knowing that 25 percent of the proceeds from every purchase is going to a non-profit animal shelter or rescue. Organizations that benefit include the Humane Society of the United States, Animal Place Sanctuary, Give Me Shelter Cat Rescue, the North Shore Animal League, SPCA of Solano County, Mid-Atlantic Pug Rescue, Yolo County SPCA, and German Shepherd Rescue of Northern California. And at $23.95 per shirt, you can justify getting a few to round out your collection of pet-friendly threads.

In addition to the original and highly tongue-in-cheek styles that Animal Hearted offers, the company also crafts custom pet tees ($38.95) using your personal pet photos.
