Do you love chocolate? Do you love helping animals? Rescue Chocolate has a way for you to enjoy both.

Founded in January 2010, Rescue Chocolate has donated (and continues to donate) all of its profits to animal rescues. Some of the organizations that have benefited from the company to date include Farm Sanctuary, Mercy for Animals and The No Kill Advocacy Center. Even the chocolate itself is made with the wellbeing of animals in mind. It’s fairly traded, handcrafted, kosher, organic and vegan and even has photos of rescued pets on the labels. But that doesn’t mean the chocolate is safe for animals; it’s only for human consumption.

In addition to the cute cat and dog photos on the chocolate bars, each flavor is named after an animal rescue issue. These include Peanut Butter Pit Bull (to change the negative connotations associated with this breed), Foster-iffic Peppermint (to promote fostering a shelter pet even if you are unable to adopt one), The Fix (you guessed it – this one promotes spaying and neutering), Mission Feral Fig (to raise awareness about Trap-Neuter-Release programs regarding feral cat colonies), Forever Mocha (promotes keeping your pets for life, even if behavioral issues develop) and Fakin’ Bacon (in honor of farm animals who should be living in pastures and meadows instead of factories).

At Lucky Puppy, we are chocoholics on top of being rescue diehards, so this is right up our alley. To learn more about Rescue Chocolate or to make a purchase, visit the Rescue Chocolate website.
