We Exist To Help Dogs In Need
Mess Less Pet was founded purely as a means to help animals in need. From every purchase, a percentage of the proceeds are given to organizations who actively save, restore and make broken lives whole again. We believe that love and compassion can come from anywhere, from anyone and at anytime. It's not important how great or small, but simply that it's given at all.
By choosing Yipper Snappers, you're not just giving your best friend a healthy treat, you're uniting in a common goal to give back love and compassion to those that need it most. Together, we can make a difference in so many lives. Whether it's helping a puppy find a forever home or rescuing a precious soul from abuse – your purchase makes a difference.
