New York, NY, September 07, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Danbury Animal Welfare Society (DAWS) has been named the September 2012 beneficiary for Rescue Chocolate, the vegan chocolate company which donates 100% of its profits to various animal rescue organizations.
DAWS is a volunteer-powered non-profit organization dedicated to improving the lives of animals in the local community and beyond.
Toward that end, the group promotes responsible pet guardianship, stages educational programs, shelters homeless companion animals, and puts on regular adoption events. Hundreds of homeless or abused dogs and cats have been rescued by DAWS so far this year.
Rescue Chocolate founder Sarah Gross said DAWS is just the kind of group her company looks for when trying to decide on a beneficiary for the monthly profits. “They aren’t as famous as the big national groups like the Humane Society, but they are in the trenches doing the real work of saving the lives of animals,” Gross said. “I’m happy and honored to be able to contribute in my small way.”
Her company offers a product line of kosher and vegan chocolate bars and truffles. Each flavor is named after an issue important in the animal rescue world. For example, there are bars called Peanut Butter Pit Bull, Pick Me Pepper, Foster-iffic Peppermint, The Fix, and Mission Feral Fig.
Gross cautions that while sales ultimately benefit the animals, her chocolate products are only for human consumption.
The chocolate company was founded in January 2010. Products are sold in retail outlets around the country as well as online. To learn more about Rescue Chocolate or to order products benefiting DAWS, visit www.RescueChocolate.com. For more information on DAWS, visitwww.daws.org.
