FOUND MY ANIMAL designs and makes accessories for adopted animals and their people.FOUND leashes (or leads) are spliced and whipped (old nautical terms) using custom-made rope, an extremely durable yet luxurious alternative to leather. Each leash can withstand thousands of pounds of pull (these ropes are normally used for dock line) and is complimented by marine-grade solid bronze clips on either end. Two adjustable, antique brass o-rings are woven into the leash so that you can clip one end to your dog’s collar and the other anywhere along the leash for a short or long lead. You can wear the leash around your waist like a belt, across your chest like a sash, or clip your dog to any object without worrying about the security of a knot. Each leash comes with an individually numbered, solid brass FOUND tag. The tags struck us as a nice, tangible way for our customers to see the individual part they were playing in a larger cause. Found My Animal leashes are a useful, beautiful, visual reminder of the urgent need for animal adoption. Each FOUND leash is handmade in New England. Proceeds from the leashes go directly to the Louis Animal Foundation, a non-profit group dedicated to providing homes for animals that have not yet 'found' their people. The group operates a mobile medical unit where veterinarians can spay and neuter animals in rural communities where access to these services is often both physically and financially limited. We are also currently working to develop a product for cats and their people so they too can show their support.
