Neeko's Animal Welfare Foundation


How It Works

Neeko's Animal Welfare Foundation is a private philanthropic fund established by the Dans as a means of supporting an important cause they both care deeply about - helping animals.

In addition to the Dans' contributions, all proceeds from merchandise sales, and generous donations from friends, family, and supporters of the cause go directly into the fund.

Neeko's Foundation then issues grants to Canadian charities championing animal welfare efforts.

How It Started

Named after our adorable pup Neeko, we could think of no better way to share our love of animals than to start a Foundation in his honour. We believe all dogs, cats, cows, and otherwise are capable of feelings and emotions just like people. Neeko reminds us of that every single day.
