In their own ways, each of them has contributed to our growth and success, and we would like to return the favor. Check out their websites, follow them on Facebook and Twitter. Help support those that support us.

We are proud or our new and blossoming relationship with the SPCA Serving Erie County, especially the friendship and support of Gina Browning. There is an insurmountable amount of good that this organization does for our community, up to and including the support of Maddie’s Fund. With our own QC Officer being a Miniature Schnauzer, how can we not love and support them? Their mission is clear, “… to create a caring and kind community that encourages fair and humane treatment of all creatures.” Please, if you have not already, help support this wonderful organization in any way that you can. You can connect with them here:
Our friend Chris Kreiger founded WNY Heroes in 2007. A combat veteran himself, he realized soon after returning home that a need existed for more specialized care and attention for returning veterans and their families. The mission is quite simple, “provide veterans, members of the armed services, and the widows and children of deceased veterans with access to essential services, financial assistance and resources that support their lives and sustain their dignity.”
Both Chris and our own Vice President were called to serve as security at Penn Station and Grand Central Terminal along with the NYPD and NY MTA after the 9/11 attacks. Although they did not know each other then, the bond that all veterans have is immeasurable and once we finally met Bubba and really started to get to know Chris’ story, we knew we had a friendship for life.
Throughout the year, Fetch! will be selling a blue ribbon treat at events that we work in conjunction with WNY Heroes. The ribbon represents PTSD and TBI Awareness. Up to 100% of the proceeds from these sales will be donated directly to WNY Heroes for use in any of the many ways that they chose to serve our veteran community. June is PTSD Awareness month, we will carry the ribbon at all markets and events that month. On June 27th, PTSD Awareness Day, a percentage of proceeds from the total sales (online, market) that day will be donated to WNY Heroes.

Our friends CJ and Wendy at Andrews Barber Parlor in East Aurora, NY are truly a cut above the rest.

Gourmet Dog Treats as they always have some on hand. These guys know what it means to operate a small business, and do so with professionalism, quality and unparallelled customer service.
What are you waiting for? East Aurora doesn’t have to be the only town with killer old school cuts. Give them a like on FB, then call the shop and make an appointment. You won’t regret it.

When it comes to loving everything that there is to love about animals, Joe Marzolf and his family are the best! When he isn’t busy doing some of the best ink in the region, he is taking care of and spending time with his family, both furry and not. Joe is often donating proceeds from the work he does at the shop to various needy pet organizations, or running clothing and toy drives for local families. You name it and this guy is passionate about it! His artistic ability speaks for itself. His devotion to his furry family? Well that’s something worth seeing too.

Mr. Donald Kenney has been invaluable to our company. Not only a loyal customer, but Don has gone above and beyond in helping us create our new brand. Our new logo and marketing materials were created in large part because of his own time that he has graciously donated to us. He has been amazing to work with throughout the entire process and we look forward to picking his brain from time to time as needed in the future.
Should you have any need for a creative designer for your next project, give Don a call. Stay local and shop small. He will give you the personalized attention that you deserve.
