We are excited to announce a new collaboration with PupLid on their product release of camo dog baseball caps and matching caps for people!
To commemorate the launch, PupLid will donate 20% of all sales on www.puplid.com to Shelter to Soldier when code STS20 is used! Additionally, during March 2022, PupLid is donating 20% of any other camo sales on www.puplid.com to Shelter to Soldier!
PupLid is an Encinitas, CA-based small business with a mission to make awesome products that help dog families enhance the lives of their pets! PupLid was created by a veterinarian and engineer who needed a solution for their dog, Buddy, who loves the beach but has sun-sensitive eyes. When Buddy’s parents could not find him a well-fitting and stylish hat to shade his eyes, they made a trucker hat for him. Buddy’s hat worked so well, they launched PupLid, the company, to help enhance the lives of all dogs.
Buddy’s, veterinarian mom, Kathy Burnell, DVM, knows Shelter to Soldier first-hand through her work as a small animal veterinarian in Oceanside, CA. Additionally, with Camp Pendleton nearby, many of her patients belonged to active military personnel and veterans. Because of this, she saw that for so many active military personnel and veterans, their dogs are not only family members, but they provide essential emotional or service support that alleviates anxiety, depression and helps their person function emotionally and/or physically.
When PupLid created their camo puplids they wanted to use this product as a way to give back to people who have served our country. Because of their awareness of Shelter to Soldier and the large military community in San Diego, supporting Shelter to Soldier was their clear choice.
Kathy Burnell, DVM shared, “As a veterinarian, I have been so impressed with Shelter to Soldier, their dedication to their mission of ‘saving lives, two at a time’ and their team. I feel fortunate that through PupLid, we can support Shelter to Soldier by raising awareness and funds for their amazing organization. Our PupLid team is truly inspired by their mission and the veterans they serve.”
The Six-Panel Camo baseball cap for dogs is the latest addition to the PupLid product line for dogs who prefer a more adventure-ready look. Like PupLid’s trucker hats for dogs, the baseball caps feature a patent pending “Furfect Fit” system for maximum comfort, stability, and adjustability. They come in six sizes to fit dogs of all shapes and sizes, from 2 to 100 hundred pounds. PupLid even offers matching human hats so dogs and their humans can look great together!
Because puplids are designed for maximal comfort and fit for dogs, they are hats dogs will actually wear!
