There’s something distinctively different about Found My Animal collars and leashes, which are made from thick rope, solid brass hardware and wax-coated cotton canvas. But it’s not only the line’s industrial look that makes it stand out: Found My Animal also donates 25 percent of all profits to the Louis Animal Foundation, a nonprofit group dedicated to spaying/neutering and providing homes for animals who have not yet “found” their people. As an added touch, each Found leash comes with an individually numbered, stamped brass tag that keeps track of the number of animals Found has helped to date.

Found leashes are custom-made by professional New England rope makers, and hand-spliced to withstand thousands of pounds of pull. Each is equipped with brass hardware, making it easy to vary the length or loop a leash around your waist or over your shoulder – a stylish look for humans and a way to keep your hands free at the dog park when your dog is off the leash. And while and your pooch look cool, you’ll know other animals are benefiting from your purchase.

Find Found My Animal accessories online: $42-48 for collars, $52-70 for leashes.
