FOUND: A Charity With Style


A homeless animal’s search for a place to call home often proves to be a life-long quest but artist Anna Conway is working to change this sad situation. Found My Animal, her line of accessories for adopted animals and their people, specializes in Chauncey in Found collarhand-crafted rope leashes that benefit dogs in need of rescue. Each Found My Animal lead comes with a stamped brass, individually numbered “FOUND” tag that is not only a reminder of the uniqueness of your dog and the bond you share, but also keeps track of the number of animals helped so far. Proceeds from all sales go to Louis Animal Foundation, a non-profit organization focused on finding homes for rescued pets and tackling animal overpopulation. Their unique approach includes sending a mobile medical unit equipped with veterinarians to spay/neuter animals in remote and less-fortunate locations.
With the right mix of style and altruism, Found leads are developing a cult following, particularly in their native New York, where they have been featured by Daily Candy and are sold in Earnest Sewn. The leads are made of durable rope hand-spliced with “whipped” ends (nautical-style) by New England tradesmen and feature solid brass hardware. A vegan-friendly alternative to leather, they can be used as adjustable leashes or cross-body or around-the-waist harnesses to free up your hands. The leash comes in small to x-large and can be custom ordered. Get yours today. foundmyanimal.com
