February 17, 2017
Pet

At Gordmans we LOVE pets! In fact we have a pet day where you can bring your pet in to shop at any Gordmans store, (learn more here). Shopping with your pet is extra fun, plus we love seeing what types of pets our guests have. In the past we’ve had everything from dogs, cats, a monkey, and even a chicken! We, like many of our guests, are dedicated to helping out animals in any way that we can.

How We Give Back to Pets

Gordmans works with vendors that give back to the pet community. From donating a portion of the proceeds to helping animals, or providing meals for dogs, we strive to work with these vendors to give our furry friends the love they deserve.

MuttNation Foundation

MuttNation Foundation was founded in 2009 by Miranda Lambert and her mother Bev Lambert.  Together they have created an organization that is striving to find a forever home for every dog. This mission is supported by a host of volunteers and partnerships with shelters across the country to provide spay and neuter programs, medical treatments, adoptions, prevention’s, transportation, and education. Every MuttNation Fueled by Miranda Lambert purchase helps fund the rescue and adoption programs of MuttNation Foundation.

The goal of Dog for Dog is to feed every shelter dog in the USA. Now, that is a challenge! By providing food to shelters, this frees up dollars to pay for medial care and getting dogs forever homes. The average shelter dog food cost is around $50, about $1.66 per day. With every purchase they give an equal amount of food to dogs in need, pound for pound. Not only do they sell dog food but they also have treats, spa products, training merchandise and pet beds.  You can find select products at your local Gordmans.

American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA)

ASPCA’s mission is to provide effective means for the prevention for cruelty to animals throughout the US. In 2015, with the help of nearly 2 million supporters across the country, the ASPCA was able to rescue or assist more than 12,000 animals, facilitate over 4,600 adoptions, perform more than 54,300 spay/neuter surgeries and provide over $12.5 million in grants to animal welfare organizations.

When you purchase an ASPCA pet product at Gordmans, a portion of the proceeds are donated to help the ASPCA continue this life-saving work.

Humane Society of the United States

Most people are familiar with The Humane Society of the United States, which has a rich history and was founded in 1954.They advocate for all animals, from cats and dogs to farm animals, working to prevent animal fighting, puppy mills, factory farming and wildlife trade. They also work diligently to pass anti-cruelty laws and take care of more than 100,000 animals each year. When purchasing their products at Gordmans, 8% is going back to help these animals.

Pets are a very important part of many people’s lives and Gordmans is proud to be able to give back through these charities.
