To continue our celebration of National Adopt A Dog Month here on the blog, we’re featuring multiple brands that give back to those in need. We genuinely believe in supporting small businesses, especially when every purchase make a difference in the lives of others. We hope you will take a moment to visit these special shops, pick up a few goodies of your own and #shopwhereitmatters. When it comes to shopping with these brands, everyone wins!
Kensie Arnold Designs is a versatile pet and lifestyle brand catering to both people and their pets alike. This small business has grown from an audience of primarily Georgia residents to now reaching the entire United States (and even growing internationally)! Since their founding in October 2016, Kensie Arnold Designs has helped numerous adoptable pets find their forever homes through their donations of pet accessories. Along with loyally supporting the Athens Area Humane Society, Kensie Arnold Designs also supports several Service Dog organizations and their puppy raisers as their way of thanking these special individuals for their hard work, love and dedication they put into training life-saving companions for disabled people.
What is Kensie Arnold Designs’ mission?
Our mission is to create hand crafted, unique, durable pet accessories, and items for the dog lover. We pay attention to every detail, and I make and inspect every product before it goes out to its furever home. I never send out anything I wouldn’t want to keep for myself or my own pets. Our mission for our rescue efforts is to provide shelters that we partner with, the accessories needed to help their pets up for adoption more attention from the public, and therefore becoming more approachable. Many animals can be overlooked due to their presentation. Our special, “Adopt Me’ bandanas help provide that extra ‘cute’ approach me factor as people are intrigued once they see the animal wearing it. They are especially beneficial for large ‘bully’ type breeds that may be passed by due to having bad reputations, and this gives them an opportunity to show people that they aren’t all the same!
What makes Kensie Arnold Designs unique?
We love offering a wide range of accessories and items for both dogs and their humans. Rather than just offering bandanas, we love offering matching sets for humans and their pets. One of our popular items is our “Let me Tell Ya Bout My Best Friend” matching shirt and dog bandana combo. Our goal is to strengthen the bond and love between a person and their pet through our products. We also love offering custom and a large variety of options to our customers rather than limiting them to a select few items so we offer over 100 prints to choose from with our accessories! We also offer custom vinyl monograms that you can add to a bandana, as well as custom vinyl shirts! Our most unique product would have to be our Custom Hand Painted Leash Holders, that we paint from pictures of your pet!
What future goals is Kensie Arnold Designs working towards?
We are currently working with the Lifeline Project based in GA. We plan on partnering with them starting in the New Year to provide them with ‘Adopt Me’ bandanas for their animals. We will also be adding a feature to our sales where people can opt to donate money or a bandana with their purchase to go directly to the LifeLine Project.
