In 2014 — the third year in a row — Orvis is matching donations to the Petfinder Foundation, dollar-for-dollar, up to $30,000!
In 2013, Orvis customers met that match with a whopping $70,000 in donations, for a total gift of $100,000. Orvis customers are amazing — all of us at the Foundation are so grateful for your generous support. If you donate in 2014, once again, your contribution will be matched by Orvis up to $30,000 — your $100 contribution becomes $200!
Our Orvis grants help shelters and rescue groups care for dogs in need, including Adele, pictured at right — a former bait dog who was saved by Greater Charlotte SPCA in North Carolina. (Read Adele’s story here.)
The most gratifying aspect of our success is the ability to make a meaningful difference in the natural world. That’s why we give 5% of pre-tax profits to protect nature and each year a portion of this commitment goes towards the advancement of canine well-being. Dogs are at the heart of the Orvis culture and even more so, our lives. Please join us in support of the Petfinder Foundation’s mission.
