If you couldn’t already tell, I am a HUGE animal lover. I will be the one that will stop strangers on the street so I could pet their dog, the one at a party in the corner hanging out with the pet, ya know, normal things.
So when I saw that Alexa, a local Twin Cities chica that I started following on Instagram because I loved her photos, started an etsy shop selling cute animal related t-shirts, ya know your girl had to get on that!
Her mission is “to raise awareness for animal rescue and advocacy groups”. I mean, how perfect is that? And I also love that 10% of the sales will go to an animal rescue group. This especially tugged at my heart since I sit on a board of a non-profit whose mission is to assist animals in need by supporting animal rescue groups.
I chose this shirt in particular out of her designs because I feel like the bold letters and the message could start conversations. I love talking to people about the importance of adopting instead of “buying” their pets at pet stores. Whatever breed, size, age, cats, hamsters, dogs, you are looking for, I guarantee you that you can find a rescue group that you can adopt from. So if you see me around town with this shirt on, stop me and let’s have a conversation 🙂
So do me a solid and check out Alexa’s etsy page!
