We humans get so much from dogs—laughs, love, the occasional surprise in a closet or shoe 💩. They give and give, and ask for little in return. And that's why giving back is so important to us at Earth Rated. Especially to dogs in need, and the dedicated people who care for them.
Our passion for giving back might also have something to do with the fact that many of the dogs on the Earth Rated team are adopted. Or the fact that some of our employees have backgrounds working and volunteering with dogs and dog rescues. Looking out for our furry friends is sort of just in our DNA.
We put a lot of heart, sweat, and donated product into building our donations program, and we're proud to support shelters and rescues across North America year after year. Through efforts like our annual Spread Love blanket campaign, adoption days, giveaways, and calls to nominate shelters and rescues, we've donated a total of:
- 6,742,200 poop bags
- 8,160+ blankets
We also supply donation cases made up of 200 rolls of bags, 20 leash dispensers, and Earth Rated bandanas. These packs are perfect for shelters and rescues—where resources are almost always limited—because they include:
- Items that get used up quickly each day. (Lots of dogs calls for lots of poop bags.)
- Refill rolls and dispensers that can be added to adoption kits, so new dog owners are set up for success the minute they leave the shelter.
- Bandanas dogs can wear on adoption days or for photo shoots,to help them stand out and look even cuter for potential adopters.
The feedback we get shows us we're making a difference, and keeps us motivated to keep it up!

"Big THANKS to Earth Rated for the donation of 20 poo bag dispensers, 200 refill rolls, 20 bandanas, and 40 blankets! We deal with a lot of poop here at LoveyLoaves so it's great to be well-stocked in thick, sturdy, earth-friendly poo bags that are both biodegradable and compostable. Luna approves! THANK YOU!"
"THANK YOU EARTH RATED! You mean so much to our dogs and volunteers."
