Pittsburgh, PA, September 2015: Eyewear company Paws N Claws Eyewear, a division of Eye Deals Eyewear, recently presented the ASPCA with a check in the amount of $11,324.14 in collaboration with California Accessories and Windsor Eyes. A portion of proceeds from all sales of Paws N Claws Eyewear branded eyewear and accessories gets donated to the ASPCA. The company’s very first donation in 2011 was $500 — a fact that they were proud of when they were newly starting out. But now, not even a mere 4 years later, they’ve most recently been able to give over $11,000 to their partners at the ASPCA.
Sam Shapiro, President of Paws N Claws Eyewear, said, “Presenting the ASPCA with a check of this size gives us great pride. We take great pleasure in the fact that we have been so fortunate in growth to this point to be able to do so. We continue to grow across the United States which is amazing.”
He noted that Paws N Claws Eyewear wouldn’t have been able to give back in the way that they do without the help and support of California Accessories, Windsor Eyes, and Eye Deals Eyewear, and wants customers and retailers to know that this is only the beginning of what is poised to be a great cause that he and his company are devoted to.
Up to 3% of the purchase price of each Paws N Claws Eyewear item goes to the ASPCA, which is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit started in the late 1800’s. Now, the ASPCA has millions of supporters worldwide who stand by them in their missions of animal welfare and animal rights. The Paws N Claws Eyewear brand has made that part of their mission and their brand identity, too.
“We wanted to support a cause that’s close to our hearts and make it easy for pet lovers everywhere to easily join in the fight to prevent cruelty to animals,” said Mr. Shapiro.
