ZUMI is not a big company by any stretch of the imagination. It’s a family owned and operated business that for the most part consists of one true full-time employee and a couple “part-time employees”. In other words, my family helps me keep up with the madness of my dream.
Limitations are a given in such a small company, but that doesn’t stop us from contributing what we can, when we can.
Which is exactly why we created the Perfectly Imperfect Program (or PIP for short), a donation program for shelters and rescue organizations around the country.
From time to time, we receive items that do not meet our company standards cosmetically. The items aren’t defective in any way, but they will have a blemish, scratch or scuff from the manufacturing process. Such is life right? They are always small and most of the time not very noticeable, but we uphold high quality standards and for that reason, we will not sell them to customers.
However, since there’s no reason they can’t be used, we donate them!
We set them aside and when we collect enough, we send them out to organizations free of charge. We wanted some good to come of these otherwise lonely items and what better way to do that than giving them a chance with dogs who are looking for their chance!
We cycle through our list of applicants in the order their received and send a set of leashes to one non-profit organization every quarter (4 times a year).
Non-profit organizations are welcome to apply to the program on the PIP page to join the roster.

As ZUMI continues to grow we hope that this will be just one of the many ways we can help many displaced and disadvantaged dogs.

For many of us, spring through fall is peak hiking/camping season. Unfortunately, it’s also snake season, which means we have to coexist on the trails with these danger noodles.
Joking aside, this is a serious matter and one that everyone should be aware of.
Spring is in the air, which probably means you’re spending more time outside with your best friend and we don’t blame you.
If you’re looking for something new to try with your pup this spring, you’ve come to the right place! We’re going to share with you 5 canine sports that you and your dog should try and we’ve even got a way for you to try one of them for free.
