Pitbull Coffee Company Seeks Pitbull Rescue Organizations to Support Financially
George Carson, President and Chief Executive Dog Walker of The Carson Group, announced today the formation of Pitbull Coffee Company, a new brand of single-origin, blended, and flavored coffees benefiting no-kill animal shelters, dog foster care organizations, and Pitbull Rescue operations.
Pitbull Coffee Company is now seeking 501(c)3 rescue organizations that would like to receive the company's donations on a quarterly basis.
"We’re reaching out to the Pitbull Rescue Community now and asking for referrals to deserving shelters. Our goal is to donate $500 to $1,000, each, to approximately ten shelters across the U.S., in our first year." Carson explained. "We've already had that type of success with our other coffee brands, where we support more than four dozen shelters who specialize in rescuing other breeds.”
"Pitbulls are commonly found in shelters for a variety of reasons," Carson continued. "They are an enthusiastic and powerful breed that can benefit from plenty of exercise and early training. And they're easily misunderstood, because they can be protective. In the right homes, they are amazing, gentle, and loving companions. We want to provide financial support to the hardworking and dedicated people who rescue abandoned Pitbulls and give these dogs a second chance at finding homes."
Pitbull Coffee Company will offer freshly roasted, sought-after coffee from small, family, and co-family farms around the world. The company doesn't roast the beans until customers place orders. Then, it vacuum seals and ships beans or ground coffee at the peak of freshness.
"I don't think you can buy coffee this fresh at the grocery store," Carson declared. "That coffee's been sitting around, waiting for you to visit. Our beans are roasted on-demand and shipped immediately. There's no experience quite like opening one of our bags and smelling coffee at the peak of freshness. If you've never experienced it, you'll notice the difference immediately. And I think you'll feel good about it, because it's coffee with a purpose."
With the addition of the Pitbull Coffee Company brand, Carson's business — which also owns Doberman, Golden Retriever, German Shepherd, Boxer, Labrador Retriever, Rottweiler and Great Dane coffee brands — will provide significant financial support to approximately 60 rescues and no-kill shelters, nationwide. The company also offers branded apparel, tumblers, and even a few items for Pitbulls, themselves, at pitbullcoffeecompany.com. Twenty percent of the profit in every purchase will be set aside and provided to what Carson refers to as his company's "shelter partners," quarterly.
Carson says he and his family were inspired to start the company by their own dogs, by their son's volunteerism at a Honolulu-based Humane Society, and by Carson's sister's involvement in a Colorado-based rescue organization.
"We just looked at our relationships with our animals, the home life we provide for them and the love they give back to us, and we think every dog deserves to have that," Carson added. "One Pitbull abandoned in one shelter is too many — and, unfortunately, there are thousands abandoned each year. We think we can do something about that."
It's worth noting that no one working at Carson's company takes a salary from any of the existing coffee brands or Pitbull Coffee Company. Both are managed by a staff of volunteers who work together at Carson's Cleveland-based advertising agency.
"Twenty percent of the profit in every sale goes to our rescue partners, and the rest will go back into the business to make it sustainable," Carson explained. "We want this company to be around and able to help for the long term. So we're contributing our time to ensure its success.
“The concept is simple: Drink coffee. Save dogs," Carson concluded.
