Clogs for The Dogs

Clogs for The Dogs

March 17, 2021

             We understand the importance of footwear and the feelings of happiness that come with finding a new pair of shoes that fit just right. But what if that little spark of joy could extend beyond you? What if your purchase meant having a positive impact in someone else's life? What if that someone was a little, furry friend?

Orthoquest’s Quest for Kindness, is excited to announce the launch of our newest community campaign, “Clogs for The Dogs” in support of the BC SPCA. From now until the end of the year, we are donating 10% of every Dansko sale to the BC SPCA. That means $10 for every $100 you spend goes directly to help our local shelter.

Clogs for the Dogs

A Brief History About Dansko

Founded in 1990 by Mandy Cabot and Peter Kjellerup, Dansko’s mission is to improve the quality of people’s lives through great products, sincere passion and a commitment to a better tomorrow. Former horse trainers, Mandy and Peter sought the perfect “barn shoe.” They found it in a in a tiny shop in Europe - the traditional clog. They returned with suitcases filled with clogs for family and friends, and soon started selling them from the back of their station wagon. Word of the clogs comfort traveled quickly, and Dansko (meaning “Danish shoe”) was born.

Dansko isn't just passionate about their shoes though, they are also passionate about people and giving back to their community. Every employee is allotted 20 hours of paid time off per year to volunteer, which adds up to more than 1,000 hours devoted to helping local organizations. Their helping hands have planted trees and painted playgrounds; cleaned up highways and built houses; constructed oyster reefs and cooked meals for needy families. Not only do they pay their employees to volunteer, they also donate the equivalent of what they were paid for their volunteer hours to the organizations they help.

"We’re passionate about leaving the world a better place than we found it. If that means building another house, pass us the hammer and nails; if it means cooking another meal, hand us an apron!" – Dansko

Why the BC SPCA?

If you have ever been to our store (or follow us on social media), you know that our team is filled with animal lovers, in fact we even have two greater dogs who ‘work’ at the store Monday through Friday. Since the foundation of our company in 2007, Orthoquest and Kelowna Kinesiology have been proud sponsors for the BC SPCA, sponsoring their annual gala and volunteering at the local shelter on the weekends.

BC SPCA Volunteering

The British Columbia Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (BC SPCA) is a non-profit animal welfare organization which advocates for animal protection legislation, operates animal shelters, and runs educational workshops and public awareness programs throughout British Columbia. Their mission is to protect and enhance the quality of life for domestic, farm and wild animals in British Columbia. Every year the BC SPCA assist more than 97,109 animals in need and are funded by fellow animal lovers. They are the largest animal welfare organization of their kind in North America and the largest sheltering society in the world (with over 44 locations in BC).
