About Hip Hound
Our Humble Beginnings
Meet Lynn – an everyday girl living and working in sunny Southern California. Never having a pet as a child (ever; not even a goldfish) she attended a dog rescue event in front of her local PetsMart one beautiful May morning.
Meet Sahara – the 3 month old puppy snatched from the jaws of certain death at the hands of a high kill shelter in Los Angeles by dedicated dog rescuers.
Their paths crossed that fateful day and it was love at first sight.
Now a proud Fur Mom, Lynn became fascinated (okay – some people may have viewed it as being mildly obsessed) with pet accessories, specifically the dog collar. It didn't take long before her mild obsession turned into a full blown addiction. Dozens upon dozens (upon dozens; seriously) of collars later Lynn and Sahara discovered they were no longer satisfied with what was currently out there. They had a vision for something more fun, off the wall, hip if will. Launching with a line of collars and then shortly thereafter a collection of pet ID tags, Hip Hound was born.
Hip Hound believes pets are family members. They brighten our day, bring us joy and ask for very little, if anything, in return. They love us when no one else can stand us. They stick with us through thick and thin, good and bad. They don’t laugh at us. They don’t judge us. They love us unconditionally. How cool is that?
While we live to serve you, our valued customer, we also firmly believe we have a responsibility to do good. To make a difference in our industry and world, however small that contribution may be.
The Hip Hound Partner Program
To that end we have instituted our Hip Hound Partner Program. This initiative serves as a much needed fund-raising tool for animal related organizations. It's a simple process:
- An animal related organization (rescue, shelter, research company, non-profit, etc.) applies to become a Hip Hound Partner.
- Once approved they are assigned a unique website shopping link to distribute to their employees, customers, friends, family, etc.
- ANY purchase made from their Hip Hound Partner site will generate a donation (based upon a percentage of the order total) to be sent directly to the organiztion.
- That's it!! The more people they tell, the more people shop, the more donations are generated and the more needy animals they can serve!
