Beaux and Paws was launched by Sir Darius Brown, a Newark, N.J., teen who started making dapper bow ties for dogs who’d been displaced by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma. The ties were a way to help the pups stand out and get adopted faster. Since then, this young entrepreneur has donated to countless shelters around the U.S. and in the U.K. to help shelter pets find “loving forever homes.” He won a Prudential Spirit of Community state award for his work. A portion of each sale is donated to the ASPCA, if you want to buy a bow tie for your own pet!
Based in Portland, Ore., former Nike designer Angela Medlin creates human and dog apparel at the chic and sophisticated House Dogge boutique. The designer offers personalized touches on eco-conscious items like hoodies, collars, and tug toys. A part of every purchase is donated to rescue nonprofits, so it’s no wonder these comfy dog clothes made it onto Oprah’s Favorite Things list!
