We didn’t start out as Animal Rescue Advocates…

… we were simply a small t-shirt company with an idea.

Why not take our fun cartoon animal designs, and use them to help Rescues and Shelters earn $$$?

After all, it is far more rewarding to help others, as opposed to just helping ourselves.

When we started out, we were just using our own personal facebook pages to reach rescues and shelters.

As business started to increase… we noticed something.

Our #1 selling shirt, was this one:

So… we decided to create a facebook page based on this design and theme.

As of right now… we have nearly 34,000 fans and growing! It’s a great place to visit, hang out, post a photo and story of your rescued pet, and join in on a conversation or two.

In addition to starting a facebook page, we decided to expand our goals. Fundraising was still a big part of what we wanted to do, but we also wanted to help spread awareness.

We added bumper stickers, vehicle magnets, and license plate frames to our offerings.

We created an animal rescue facebook directory to give groups exposure and make it easier for fans to find their FB pages.

We started a RESCUED! website. Which not only showcases our products and our fundraising opportunities, but also gives us a chance to feature different animal rescue groups and shelters.

Along the way, we learned a lot about facebook promotion, so… we decided to share this info with EVERYONE:

We also noticed that kids REALLY seemed to like our cartoon characters… so we wrote and published both a Children’s Book, and a Rescued! Coloring Book… to help educate kids about the importance of adopting pets!

We can’t believe that we started all this just a little over 2 years ago!

None of this would have been possible without the support of many rescue groups, shelters, facebook fans, supporters, and great customers! Thank You… and stay tuned for much more!
