Get ready to be impressed by passionate pet entrepreneurs Beau Singer and Branden Waltz. Their mission to create pet products that help dog shelters is something we at Dogster can fully get behind.
The duo have been friends since high school and have always felt the entrepreneurial mindset. Thus, Devoted Dog Bowl was born in Charleston, South Carolina, where they both attend college studying business.
“We sell customizable products based around mainly dogs and cats as well,” Branden explains. “We donate 10% of all sales and 100% of all donations to animal shelters. At the end of each month we gather up the total donation and vlog us hand delivering the money to these shelters.”
Devoted Dog Bowl creates custom premium bowls, which include a large stainless-steel bowl they describe as “very similar to Yeti’s bowl,” also a small ceramic bowl with a wooden stand and a small and large travel bowl.
“The way some animals get treated breaks our hearts,” explains Branden, “so we want to do whatever we can to help benefit the lives of pets. Devoted Dog Bowl will make a difference for pets no matter what it takes!” Beau and Branden have had pets all of their lives. Beau has two Redbone Coonhounds, Penny and Copper, and Branden has a Ragdoll cat named Monte.
The two have expanded the business into decorative license plates, decals, leashes and a mystery box with chew toys and other goodies in order to raise sales to have bigger donations. “The short-term goal is to donate as much money as possible and benefit as many dogs and shelters that we can. Our long-term goal is to help change every kill shelter to a no-kill shelter and help create an easier and a more inviting adoption process.”
