2,200 DOGS & CATS ARE KILLED DAILY AND ROSS BUTLER WANTS TO HELP END IT

This is #Unconditional Love!

In collaboration with actor Ross Butler, we’ve designed three t-shirts based on real rescue dogs in support of Best Friends Animal Society.

Every day in America, due to lack of awareness, funding, and resources, some 4,100 companion animals are euthanized. Best Friends Animal Society is changing that and hoping to take the country “no-kill” by 2025.

The 34-year-old non-profit owns a massive Sanctuary in southern Utah, “Best Friend” locations in Los Angeles, New York, Salt Lake City, and Atlanta, as well as an extensive network of private and public shelters across the nation. On top of their hands-on work, the Society is a daily advocate for humane animal care through a variety of campaigns.

“It lifts my mood. They’re just emotional sponges,” Butler says when speaking about emotional support dogs that visited him while he was in the hospital after getting his appendix removed earlier this year, “It’s unconditional love.”

“BEING AN ACTOR I CAN GO TO DARK PLACES SOMETIMES"

Butler will be staring in the upcoming DC Comics Shazam! movie, after playing Reggie in the smash hit, Riverdale.Butler is also known for starring in Netflix’s 13 Reasons Whyas Zachary Dempsey,a powerful show that started country-wide conversations on self-harm and suicide.

“Being an actor, I can go to dark places sometimes” he tells us, “or just being a human in general.” And so he looks to these emotional (and unconditional love) sponges, whether canine, feline, or other fluffy or feathered critters, to lighten the darkness. Pets have been proven to help us mitigate depression, anxiety, stress, and even PTSD. The “Who rescued who?” bumper stickers we see on the back of cars in traffic may seem overly cliched, but its message is true and speaks to the heart of animal companionship.

“Everyone should have a pet in their life once,” Ross says, “just to kind of understand that feeling of this symbiotic relationship of you taking care of a dog, and a dog, taking care of you.”

Now, the tough question. Who will you love unconditionally? The adorable doggo on our white tee, the handsome husky on our black tee, or the snuggly pug on our pink tee?

OUR DAWGS

PHANTOM

Phantom was born in 2015. He was rescued and came to Best Friends during Hurricane Harvey. He is an expressive guy in that he's quite the talker, and he's willing to learn new training cues for treats.

Phantom is great in the car and loves road trips. He has shown aggression toward other dogs in the past, so he may need to be the only dog in a home. When meeting new people, he does best on walks or in the dog park, because he is usually too over excited in his room or yard.

CAPTAIN PICKLES

Captain Pickles was found as a stray before he came to Best Friends, and now he's happy just to be around people again. Born in 2016, he is a fun guy who likes to play. Because he has an old pelvic fracture, he is sensitive to handling, especially around his back end. But he still loves to go for walks and would do great in an active home. He’s learning basic training cues and practicing leash manners.

DAPHNE

Shy and fearful at first, and excited once she knows you, Daphne is learning how to greet people appropriately. Born in 2016, she came to Best Friends from a rescue group in Boise, Idaho because she needed to work on her training. Daphne loves fluffy toys (though she tends to de-fluff them in a hurry =)). She also loves getting affection from people she knows, and running in the park. Daphne may be a very large and powerful girl, but she is also very sweet. All she's looking for is one special person or family who will give her a chance.

ABOUT THE CAUSE

The mission of Best Friends Animal Society is to bring about a time when there are No More Homeless Pets. We do this by helping end the killing in America's animal shelters through building community programs and partnerships all across the nation. We believe that by working together we can Save Them All.
