Our Mission & About Us
The ATA Mission: Raise Funds And Awareness While Providing Support For Animal Welfare Organizations.
Arm The Animals was born from tragedy in 2010 as an attempt to express the inexpressible. Created following the untimely death of our founders sister who was a lifelong animal advocate and “pet parent” to a dozen rescues, Arm The Animals would serve as a living tribute and means of carrying on a legacy that was ended too soon.
Over the past 8+ years, ATA has worked with 150+ animal welfare organizations providing donation funds, supplying low-cost website development, graphics and marketing services in order to help other organizations increase their impact.
ATA is the epitome of a "Mom & Pop" business; everything is done by hand with a small, dedicated team that loves what they do. The company runs like a family business and strives to make a work environment where everyone is happy, stable and motivated.
The company founders believe ALL animal welfare organizations are ultimately striving toward the same goal, so providing assistance to them can do nothing but more good.
The Bobcat fire came within 3/4 mile of our office and we saw bears, coyotes, bobcats & more fleeing through the streets of Arcadia, CA. We created this design and donated all of the net proceeds at a total of $22,000 to Pasadena Humane, Oregon Humane & ifaw.org!
|We created 2 special shirts to support animals effected by the wildfires in Australia. To date, we have raised and donated over $20,000 to WIRES who manage rescues of all types at all times.
We supporting several charities, including Dallas Dog RRR & Austin Pets Alive to help animals effected by Hurricane Harvey. This campaign generated over $6,000 from the sales of our Let's Return Their Loyalty design!
ATA works with Wildlife SOS and initially created designs to help fund the new life of Raju the elephant who cried tears upon being rescued. The campaign which started with a T-shirt carried on for several years and lead to substantial growth for Wildlife SOS as an organization online.
We currently serve as Wildlife SOSs official apparel company and their items continue to generate direct donations from sales on a monthly basis.
ATA raised/donated $13,000 for the ZCTF following the brutal murder of Cecil the lion by donating all of the proceeds from their now famous "Earth Day Lion" design. The outrage this crime caused was palpable and is still burning to this day. The ZCTF is carrying on with their great work in spite of tremendous hardships and ATA is proud to be their partner.
ATA also assisted Southern California Bulldog Rescue in raising over $35,000 by donating from each sale of their Bulldog Blade design to Kiki the bulldog, who gave it her all for nearly a year, but ultimately succumbed to her injuries.
|ATA came to the aid of Red & Quail: Two Pit Bulls that sustained multiple rattlesnake bites to the face and head while defending their family on a walk. Both dog were in critical condition and required over $12,000 of medical treatment. ATA donated $5 from every pit bull tee sold for two complete weeks and helped the family hit their goal of $12,000 to cover medical expenses.
ATA is not a non-profit organization, it is a regular apparel business that has made "giving back" a core goal of the company. The group consists of regular, down-to-earth people who love animals, care about the world around them and want to make a difference with their lives.
Here are just just a few of the other organizations we have supported with our work.
