Bobs from Skechers, a division of Skechers USA, has announced a multi-year partnership with Best Friends Animal Society, the national animal welfare organization dedicated to ending the killing of dogs and cats in America’s shelters.
To support the non-profit, Bobs has committed $3 million to further Best Friends Animal Society’s lifesaving initiatives. For every purchase of Bobs footwear, Skechers will make a donation to support Best Friends’ programs that reduce the number of companion animals entering shelters and increase the number who get placed into loving homes.
As part of the partnership, Bobs will serve as the presenting sponsor for the animal welfare organization’s major national events including Strut Your Mutt and Super Adoptions, and participate in additional year round initiatives. The partnership will also include a limited edition BOBS footwear collection that will launch in spring 2016.
“We are thrilled to partner with Bobs from Skechers on their charitable initiative,” said Gregory Castle, co-founder and CEO of Best Friends Animal Society. “Not only will the shoes look great, but each box will carry a message of support for our mission to get pets out of shelters and into forever homes. With every step taken in BOBS, we help ‘Save Them All’.”
