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. 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.
So, every now and then, we find ourselves with a number of items that by all technical/mechanical standards, are perfect, but aesthetically don’t quite cut it.
That’s why we’ve created our Perfectly Imperfect Program (or PIP). 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!
When we collect anywhere from 25 to 50 items, we donate them to shelters, humane societies and rescue organizations. Everyone (and thing) deserves a chance to fulfill their purpose, which is why this program is near and dear to us.
Please understand that these items are for the use of your organization ONLY and if found selling or distributing them in any form, your organization will be removed from the program.
* Please note: Donated items are strictly for organizational use only. US ONLY.
Glen Highland Farm’s, Sweet Border Collie Rescue, were lucky enough to receive a donation of leashes. We are so appreciative since we have close to 60 dogs on premise at all times and the leashes make movement of rescue dogs much easier. Many dogs have collar issues
from being mis-handled so having slip leads works well.
We really appreciate the thoughtfulness of ZUMI sharing a high quality product with rescue.
We rescue, rehab, and re-home working breed dogs, primarily Belgian Malinois and Dutch Shepherds. We place the dogs we pull in appropriate working or companion homes. They [programs such as PIP] are invaluable! To be able to have access to superior and high quality products, instead of settling for something the is "good enough" gives us nothing short of peace of mind. We rely on programs like PIP to make sure that funds we receive go straight to helping the dogs that we pull from kill shelters. ZUMI is everything a dog company should be! Well thought out design, reliable equipment, and attention to detail.
Woof Project is a breed specific rescue for Belgian Malinois but often take German Shepherds, Dutch Shepherds, and the occasional other random working breed/mix. We usually have at least 30 dogs in foster at a time that are pulled straight from shelters. Many times they are collar-shy or scared, so having good quality slip leads/leashes are a requirement. We are eternally thankful for companies like ZUMI to provide high quality products to nonprofits. This program definitely saves us money and makes our volunteer's lives a little easier keeping the dogs less stressed!
