Project PAL began as a simple initiative to select one adoptable dog each week, personally donate towards that dog’s care specifically, and then spend one full week promoting the dog for concentrated exposure. The project started as a few friends just trying to find an innovative way to do something to help a problem that is so overwhelming.
A few months in, after garnering so much support from the community the group decided to launch Pup Tees by Project PAL. Pup Tees attracted the attention of many due to the simple fact that 100% of the money from every shirt purchase is a donation to help the dogs in Maricopa County.
Fortunately, among those drawn to the grassroots operation were graphic designer, Kendrah Smith, of Ashtyn + Co Creative and Monica Adalsteinsson of Monica Wayne Photography. Thanks to Kendrah’s design expertise and Monica’s creative eye for capturing the perfect shots, along with their unwavering desire to make an impact by donating their time and skills, the group has been able to produce multiple designs and offer supporters a way to make a donation and get a high quality, clever shirt in return.
The project has continued to grow and the funds raised have far exceeded expectation.
When customers purchase a Pup Tee they are supplying homeless dogs with enrichment items, microchips, collars, and different needs requested by the shelter. All shirts and accessories are sold directly through Community Canine Project. The shelter pups are the driving force behind all efforts, always.
