"The money donated from this t-shirt sale will not only help pay for the medical care of our dogs, but it will also go towards our other monthly costs including dog food and flea and heartworm preventative."

"We're thrilled to support such a worthy organization like Abandoned Angels," said Bailey Schroeder, co-founder and CEO of SocialPakt.
