Hooray For The Underdog - Cards For A Cause

On a post-Thanksgiving shopping excursion, we discovered a marvelous line of cards called Hooray For The Underdog and the concept couldn't be better. Husband and wife team Joe Grisham and Janet Healey are professional photographers in Dallas who are passionate about dogs. Although their coprorate clinets include JC Penny, Neiman Marcus, and PetSmart, Healey and Grisham have found numerous ways to support animal welfare. In Dallas, they have designed bus ads to promote pet adoptions and banners encouraging mandatory spay and neuter legislation.

Hooray For The Underdog is a fetching collection of notecards, journals, buttons, folders, and notepads featuring all kinds of adorable rescue dogs. The back of the cards feature additional information about the canine models. Bibi and Buster are pictured above and according to their profile they "Did not fit their human's busy work schedule" and their special power is "Making laundry fun by stealing stuff and running full speed throughout the house."

Gracie (shown below) was the "last of a litter from a cardboard box in a grocery store parking lot." In addition to looking irresistable in a sombrero, her special power is being a "Rottweiler wannabe and part time desperado. If you need a fearless guard dog, she's your hombre."

Individual cards are $3.00 and 10% of the proceeds benefit animal rescue organizations. Check them out if you haven't already!
