Coonhound Blue: Collaboration with Animal Friends


As an animal lover, I'm always happy to work with animal non-profits. When I first started talking with Animal Friends I was excited to hear about all the programs they offer. They even have a professional photographer that takes amazing photos of the cute pups. To me that's huge because people see them differently.  They don't see just a homeless dog, they see a cute dog that will be perfect for their home.

For those of you who have not heard of Animal Friends here is a little information about them:

In 1943, at the height of World War II, a small group of Pittsburgh citizens came together in an effort to find homes for soldiers’ pets when they left to serve in the war. After the war, still faced with the need for ongoing compassionate control of the pet overpopulation and placement problem, the group opened a shelter and incorporated. They took a name that clearly articulated their mission: to serve as friends to unwanted animals.
Over time, Animal Friends evolved to meet increased demand for our services. All the while, our reverence for the animal-human bond remained at the core of Animal Friends’ mission.
In 2001, Animal Friends set out to change the way an animal shelter can serve our community. Our organization embarked on a capital campaign to build a 30,000 square-foot companion animal resource center complete with creative kenneling for homeless pets, spay/neuter clinic, classroom, resource library, over a mile of wooded walking trails and more. Thanks to community support, our vision became a reality, and on March 18, 2006, we opened the doors to the Caryl Gates Gluck Resource Center at Animal Friends.
To many, the successful transition of Animal Friends’ programs and services into a full-service community resource center was a dream realized. But, there is still much work to be done, and Animal Friends is proud to lead the way.
Today, Animal Friends is uniquely prepared to serve as a leader in compassionate, pet-focused programming. From creative kenneling for the comfort of our animals to innovative community outreach and education programs, Animal Friends is proud to embrace the community with open arms and creative, pet-centered solutions for a kinder future for our region.

Animal Friends wanted to have their brand colors incorporated into our nail lacquer design. We had a mint green, dark blue and light blue created for them and they ended up loving this wonderful periwinkle blue creme. Animal Friends decided to name this lacquer Coonhound Blue after the Bluetick Coonhound which is a breed of dog that often finds itself at the shelter. We wanted to bring awareness of that breed so that more people are more willing to adopt them.

Coonhound Blue is available now as a single or bundle on our online shop and we will be donating $1.00 per bottle sold to Animal Friends.
