I am not sure I know anyone who does not enjoy a cocktail or glass of wine once in a while, and with these brands you can feel good sipping that cocktail knowing that in some way shape or form you are helping animals. We love to profile brands that give back to animals in some way whether it is in donations of money or product – or helping organizations build awareness and educational resources.

So – the next time you need some cocktails, wine or beer for your next event – please give these brands some love! And of course – be careful with alcohol around your pets as they could become very ill if ingested!

Chateau La Paws Wines

Chateau La Paws - Wine That Helps Dogs

SUPPORTS: No-Kill Animal Shelters

This wine raises awareness of shelter dogs in need, and donates proceeds to no-kill animal shelters in the US.


Snow Leopard Vodka

SUPPORTS: Snow Leopards

Snow Leopard Vodka was created with 2 specific purposes, one was to create a great tasting vodka that the world would love and the other was to create a brand that could contribute to saving the endangered snow leopard

They have successfully done both.

Created by Stephen Sparrow, Snow Leopard Vodka was created with a super grain 5 times more expensive than those used in other vodkas called spelt grain. Snow Leopard Vodka proudly donates 15% of their profits to the Snow Leopard Trust which was created in 1981. This nonprofit organization works very hard to protect the snow leopard in its natural habitats throughout Central Asia and works with locals to develop conservation programs.

To date they have successfully donated over $200,000 for the trust! We think we can help them raise a lot more – so go show your support today!

On every bottle you will find their mascot “Phil” a feisty little chihuahua to hit home their animal friendly mission. Nile was inspired to do more because of her growing up in Mexico and seeing all the homeless dogs – but the day she met an injured dog as an adult was the day she knew she needed to make a difference.

She donates 10% of the net proceeds from every bottle sold go to organizations that work to help prevent animal abuse likes the ASPCA, SPCALA and START.

To date, the Naked Turtle in partnership with the Sea Turtle Conservancy have saved over 392,000 turtles! The journey to creating this rum began in St. Croix and their motto for the “naked” part of their brand comes from the fact they never touch the inside of the barrel where the rums are distilled.

The rum makes partnered with the Sea Turtle Conservancy in 2012 to help save baby sea turtles and they have been working together ever since!

Donations are just a small part of what they do – they work together on creating educational programs and awareness to the plight of the sea turtle as well. Every bottle has a small message that states “we support shellbacked buds” and has the Sea Turtle Conservancy logo as well.

    I did not catch the name of the company that produces this sweet red wine. I do know on every bottle there is a picture of a dog looking straight into the camera. And bottle says proceeds go to sheltered animals. I’m trying to find this company because the wine was fabulous! I’m sorry I can’t help you with the name of the company but describing what the labels show might help you. The last bottle I had was a sweet red wine (well it didn’t taste like a dead red wine so I guess this would be sweet? LOL) it had a picture of a pitbull looking at the camera it was cartoon over a real picture. The wine was fabulous I’m desperately trying to locate the company to purchase more by the case. We need to help these animals they didn’t ask to bring them here so it’s our responsibility take care of them.

      Hey Todd! First, thank you for that last line! That is our theory as well! I wish I knew the company you are referring to. The only ones we know of at this time are the ones on this list. There used to be another one on this last that no longer does the wines for dogs thing, so we removed that and I wonder if that was them maybe. If I do happen to find anymore I will definitely add them here! If you find them as well, please let me know so we can get them added! Jill
