We had a nice response to our Veteran’s Day weekend charity promotion and donated 5% of our net sales to Paws & Stripes and America’s VetDogs – Veteran’s K-9 Corps. Thank you all for participating with #HaleGives.
This has inspired us to do more, so on Giving Tuesday, 11/28/2017, Hale Pet Door will donate 10% of our net sales to the Humane Society of the United States. #HaleGives #HalePetDoorGives

Giving Tuesday was started in 2012 and is a global day of giving. Celebrated the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, it kicks off the holiday season by giving back – to your community, to charities – by volunteering, gifting or donating money. Created to combat commercialism and powered by social media and your collaboration.
Why is Giving Tuesday important:
- Allows you to feel better about yourself
- We help those in need
- Everyone can participate
Ways to share on Giving Tuesday:
- Give to your favorite charity or a new one
- Volunteer at a local shelter or hospital
- Donate items: blankets, clothes, coats, etc.
- Use the hashtag #GivingTuesday to help raise awareness of the occasion among your social networks
