changing animals' lives one paw at a time
It is estimated that 7.5 million dogs and cats enter shelters annually throughout the United States, many unnecessarily. Sadly, 2.7 million of these animals are ultimately euthanized for reasons that are nothing short of heartless. Some of these animals never stood a chance simply because of their breed. Having volunteered at a shelter myself, I have seen firsthand the heart wrenching outcomes of overpopulation due to lack of spay and neutering, abuse, neglect and ignorance. It was for these very reasons that Ashes For Hope was founded. We have created jewelry that will honor these nameless, faceless, lost souls as heroes in the proceeds they will generate to prevent future animals from walking in their footsteps. These animal's lives will no longer have been in vain with your support. Ashes For Hope strives to help fund the Shelters, Rescues and all Animal Welfare Organizations that work towards rehabilitation, intense medical treatment and finding these animals precious homes rather than the cruel alternative. The ashes from which our pieces are made come from animals that were humanely euthanized for severe pain and suffering from which there was no recovery.
