If you love supporting small businesses and animal rescue, there is a relatively new site to check out – Jusani. This very cool company partners with artists and designers and gives them a marketplace to sell their products. Then, Jusani donates a portion of each sale to a designated pet non-profit while providing key educational information on pet rescue.
Jusani is the creation of Melissa Salinas who wanted to create site that was not only transparent on it’s mission, but was easily sharable through social media. “With this new simplified platform we are working to build our supporters, "our tribe" of folks who believe in changing the system for our companion animals with new innovative methods," like sharing via social media.”
Helping homeless pets
The site focuses on helping non-profit, no kill animal shelters, especially those in smaller communities, who have a high adoption rate and social media following. Every two weeks, the campaign re-boots, so to speak, and start over providing fundraising for a new organization. Through July 7, Jusani is helping the Pet Animal Welfare Society (PAWS) of Connecticut, and from July 8 through July 21, they will be helping Friends For Life in Houston.
For each product sold, $5 is donated to the rescue (in some cases $8). Some of the cool items on the site include –
There are many sites out there that sell products and donate to animal rescue. Jusani uses their Website as a platform to educate about the problem of abandoned pets in America. With infographics and blog posts, Jusani outlines the reasons why so many pets are abandoned and uses social media to promote the adoption of featured pets.
