Our founder, Tamae Ishii, has a special place in her heart for puppy mill dogs. Her muse and inspiration for Privé Pet was her own beloved Chihuahua, Dauphine-Bijoux, who was rescued from a rural puppy mill in Pennsylvania. Dauphine-Bijoux was forced to start breeding at the young age of 1 and had two litters that resulted in puppies that were too weak to survive. She was ultimately discarded as she was no longer able to produce puppies to generate income for the puppy mill.
Thankfully, Tamae found Dauphine-Bijoux on Petfinder.com and they have been inseparable ever since. This experience has driven Tamae to make a difference in the lives of animals like Dauphine-Bijoux and to help improve the lives of all animals that are put into cruel and precarious situations.
At Privé Pet, we are committed to supporting various animal welfare and rescue groups that align with our values. Some of our favorite charities include the Humane Society, Best Friends Animal Society, and Animal Hope and Wellness Foundation. We donate a portion of our profits to these organizations and others like them so that they can continue their important work in saving and improving the lives of animals.
In addition to our philanthropic efforts, we also strive to promote ethical and sustainable practices in our business. We believe in using materials that are eco-friendly and cruelty-free, and we are always looking for ways to reduce our carbon footprint.
We are proud to be a part of a growing community of people who are passionate about animal welfare and dedicated to making a positive impact in the world. Join us in our mission to help animals in need.
