When you make a purchase from Fifthtee, you can take pride in knowing that you are giving an animal a second chance. Being a transparent company, we want you to know more about the organization that you’re helping towards. 20 percent of all profits from Fifthtee products are donated to Best Friends Animal Society (BFAS), a non-profit organization whose ultimate goal is to protect healthy animals in shelters from being unnecessarily killed due to overcrowding.
BFAS was founded almost 40 years ago by a group of friends that aimed to rescue animals deemed “unadoptable”. In the beginning, BFAS suffered from a lack of the resources, practical skills, and financial support needed to care for the number of animals that they wished to save. In order to raise funds and awareness for their cause, BFAS set up tables in front of grocery stores and published a Best Friends magazine detailing the positive adoption stories of their rescue animals. With dedication and support from local citizens, BFAS raised enough money to build the first Best Friends Animal Sanctuary in Angel Canyon, UT. Today, this shelter houses over 1,600 animals and sees over 25,000 visitors a year. BFAS has now expanded to Los Angeles and is working with animal rescue groups, city shelters and passionate individuals to make LA a no-kill city.
Providing food, shelter, and affection for so many animals is no easy feat, and that’s where you, our lovely Fifthtee customers come in. Your purchases aids in fostering animals in need, helps to maintain the 21,000 acres of land that the Utah sanctuary encompasses, and continues to lower the amount of animals killed every year. With your help, we can continue to support BFAS in their goal to make sure that shelters are well-funded and homeless animals are given a chance.
