The Impact of AmazonSmile

Giving back to the community isn’t just reserved for the holiday season. It’s a year-round effort to make a difference in the lives of many, dogs included. Donating to worthy causes has been made even easier with the use of platforms like AmazonSmile.

 

Did you know that AmazonSmile has helped to raise more than $100 million for numerous charities?

 

This service acts as an additional fundraising arm that helps us to support causes focused on three key initiatives: service dogs for veterans, youth literacy programs and employment opportunities for adults with autism. You can learn more about our initiatives here.

 

Users of AmazonSmile may visit the site (smile.amazon.com) and log in with regular Amazon credentials. Once you’re logged in, choose the Dogtopia Foundation as the charity you would like to support. AmazonSmile donates 0.5% of the purchase price of eligible products to the charitable organization of your choosing.  Every now and then, you’ll see a special, limited time offer that increases the donation amount on one or more products or services or allows for additional donations. Tens of millions of products on Amazon are eligible for donations and you’ll see this denoted on an item’s product detail page.

 

Want to know the best part? Your Amazon account doesn’t change. In fact, everything stays the exact same: your wish list, your account settings, your baby registry. The only difference? You’re raising funds for a charitable organization just by shopping.

 

AmazonSmile is an effortless way to make a powerful difference in the lives of animals, youth and more. Whether you use Dogtopia daycare or not, we encourage everyone to use AmazonSmile.
