Love & Pawsitivity was started with the mission to create a company that spreads love and supports positive thoughts, actions, and ideas through the quirky lens of love for our fur-babies. Our pup reminds us daily that dogs can be great teachers; they love unconditionally.
So in order to continue supporting what we believe in, we have decided to create an ongoing list of Black-Owned Pet Businesses, that we can all support - now and always. We ended up with a list so big we had to break it into 3 posts. This one is the pet clothes, toys, and accessories edition!
If you have the ability to, buy from these businesses.
If you can't, here are a few ways you can support them for free:
- Follow them on social media and engage with their account. Like, comment, & share their content.
- Talk about them in your social media - a simple Instagram story or post can make a difference.
- Share these businesses with friends and families outside of just social media. I bet someone you know may need something they're selling or are providing.
- Visit their website and sign up for their newsletters.
- When it makes sense, let them know you support them.
There are literally hundreds of businesses out there, and this list only scratches the surface. But we hope it helps you started on your search for new businesses to work with. And now onto these wonderful businesses:
