Pup’parel is committed to the support of animal rescue and other dog-related nonprofit groups. As a part of this commitment, we donate a certain amount to nonprofits on a regular basis. You can tell us where you think these funds should go by voting for a nonprofit at checkout. You can also send us a vote without making a purchase by contacting us. More than one nonprofit can receive funds when we donate!
Please note: Rasputin, AKA Razz L Dazzle, the former CFO of Pup'parel crossed the rainbow bridge in early 2010. We suspended "Razzy's Choice" for a few years, as we struggled with what to do with his program since he was no longer with us. Finally, we decided that we will continue to honor him by reinstating the tradition of "Razzy's Choice", his nephew, Onyo-"Husky"-Bandit-Dog will doing the choosing from this point forward.

For those of you that aren't familiar with "Razzy's Choice", sometimes our customers don't have a preferred group to receive a donation. Those customer votes don't disappear, but go into a "bucket", which we refer to as "Razzy's Choice" votes. Each year, Razzy (our former CFO [Chief Food Officer]) would chose which dog related nonprofit group would reap the reward from these votes. "Husky" has taken over Razzy's job, and to ensure Husky’s choice is "random" he chooses a cookie that has one organization's name on it from a bucket that contains all on our list. Razzy’s only rule was that he could not choose the same group twice in a row! So Husky, Razzy's protege, will maintain that rule, too! On the off chance that this should happen, he gets to pick again—and, of course, eat a 2nd cookie after "Mom" removes the slip of paper! The group's name that is on the piece of paper from the cookie that is chosen receives ALL of the undesignated votes for that period.
