If you've been on our Facebook or Instagram you've probably seen our posts about these wonderful Non-Profit Bandanas! When we decided to open Bark & Ophie we knew we were always going to do this project of supporting local non-profits, and planned on rolling it out this Fall. We had 6 local non-profits apply, and we are thrilled with the results of how they turned out! Below is information about each non-profit and a picture beautifully modeled by my Barkley and his friend, Buddy (the golden)! Choose which one you want or get them all! They're going quick though! When you purchase one $5 goes back to that organization!
Have a boy but like the pink bandana? Who cares! All puppy genders are welcome to support any organization and rock the colors!

Paige has always had a passion for animals and it only kept growing as she got older! As Paige & her husband grew their animal family (3 dogs and 4 cats to be exact), Paige was always trying to find quality, sustainable, and adorable products for her pets. From it all came, Bark & Ophie! She's learned so much from her favorite dog trainer friend, Elle Bee, and from experience of having good and bad days with all those crazy pets running around!
