We’re still celebrating saving over 1,000 dogs from the streets of Houston’s 5th Ward! Since our inception in November of 2011, we have tracked every dog (and cat! – though they are few and far between) that we have helped save from a miserable life in the streets. We recently surpassed the 1,000 mark and as of the launch of this campaign, we’ve rescued our 1,054th dog! As we approach our 5-year anniversary, we wanted to celebrate this milestone with you and offer this limited edition designed shirt with you. Even better yet – we are offering several styles, sizes, and options. Scoop neck ✓ V neck ✓ Tank top ✓ Baseball tee ✓ Hoodie ✓ Kids tee ✓ Multiple colors ✓ Order yours today! Thanks for celebrating with us! @bonfirefunds https://www.bonfire.com/1kdogssaved/ #bonfirefunds
