Grounded Sage believes in the power of communities, and that local charities are at the heart of each community. To support the vital work of local charities, Grounded Sage helps out whenever possible. Below is a list of charities, organizations, causes & community events that we've helped with.
WHO WE HELP – ONGOING
- Bullies in Need: All the proceeds from our dog shampoo and Daphne’s Mix go to Bullies in Need to support their work helping “pit bull type” dogs in Ontario who face euthanasia daily due to Ontario’s ban. At Grounded Sage, we love all breeds of dogs and feel the work that organizations such as Bullies in Need provide a much-needed voice for misunderstood “pit bull type” dogs in Ontario.
- Cedar Row Farm Sanctuary: We’re a monthly sponsor of a Cedar Row farm animal. Also, anytime they need us to, we make “piggy” soaps and the proceeds go directly to the sanctuary. Over at Cedar Row, Duff the Goat had been our sponsor animal but with heavy hearts, we heard of his passing. Duff lived at Cedar Row for 7+ years and is dearly missed. Now our monthly donation to Cedar Row goes to the animal that needs it the most that month.
- Second Chance Auction Animal Rescue (SCAAR): We’re a monthly sponsor of SCAAR who’s vital work helps find homes for homeless dogs through a foster home system.
- Rabbit Rescue Inc: We’re a monthly sponsor of Rabbit Rescue Inc, an Ontario based charity that is dedicated to saving rabbits from abandonment, neglect, illness, injury and inhumane conditions.
- Animal Rescue Foundation of Ontario (ARF Ontario): We’re a monthly sponsor of ARF Ontario, a London, Ontario based organization that works with local First Nations areas and rural communities to help find permanent loving homes for unwanted strays.
Lily's Place Animal Sanctuary
Lily's Place Animal Sanctuary is the small (but mighty) animal sanctuary founded by Jamie (the founder of Grounded Sage) and her spouse Tim (of Tamarack Ridge Craftsmen). Proceeds from special release products from Grounded Sage go towards the care of the animals at Lily's Place. Learn more about Lily's Place here.
