Franchising with a Purpose: Camp Bow Wow's Commitment to Rescue and Adoption

In the vast world of franchising, it is not often that you come across a brand that truly embodies a sense of purpose beyond profitability. However, Camp Bow Wow, a leading pet care franchise in North America, has established itself as a shining example of a company that goes above and beyond for a cause close to many of our hearts: pet rescue and adoption.

At the core of Camp Bow Wow's business model is the belief that all dogs deserve love, care, and a forever home. With over 200 franchise locations across the United States and Canada, they have created a network that not only provides exceptional pet care services but also actively contributes to the welfare and well-being of dogs in need.

One of the most notable initiatives by Camp Bow Wow is its partnership with local rescues and animal shelters. These partnerships play a vital role in connecting dogs in need with potential adopters. By providing a platform for adoption events, Camp Bow Wow serves as a hub for finding forever homes for countless dogs.

Annual Mars Pet Adoption Weekend

One of the most significant events in Camp Bow Wow's philanthropic calendar is the Mars Adoption Week. Mars Petcare, the parent company of Camp Bow Wow, is committed to making a positive impact on the lives of pets in need. Working in conjunction with local rescues, Mars Adoption Week sees designated Camp Bow Wow locations hosting adoption events on a larger scale, taking place simultaneously across the country. This collaborative effort creates a significant impact, raising awareness and increasing the chances of finding forever homes for deserving dogs. Mars, in association with Royal Canin and Camp Bow Wow committed up to $100,000 to cover adoption fees, in addition to another $50,000 from the non-profit Pedigree Foundation.

Camp Bow Wow’s Aulti-Mutt Auction

The Aulti-Mitt Auction is another annual fundraising event supported by Camp Bow Wow. In the run-up to the event, the Camp Bow Wow community mobilizes to gather an impressive array of items, trips, and unique experiences that will be featured in fundraising auctions. The selection of premium auction prizes not only helps to generate excitement but also serves as a powerful fundraising tool to support the initiative. Additionally, Camp Bow Wow utilizes its extensive network to solicit donations from other businesses and brands that share their passion for pet rescue and adoption. In 2023, $18,000 was raised through the Ulti-mutt auction for The Bow Wow Buddies Foundation.

Camp Bow Wow's Dedication to Pet Rescue and Adoption

Camp Bow Wow's dedication to pet rescue and adoption does not stop at hosting adoption events. The franchise also actively promotes responsible pet ownership and pet education within the communities they serve. From The Camp Bow Wow Buddies Foundation® to advocating for pet safety and training, Camp Bow Wow Camp Owners and staff members work diligently to make a difference in the lives of not just the dogs in their care but also in the broader pet community.

By partnering with local rescues, hosting adoption events, and advocating for responsible pet ownership, Camp Bow Wow has become a compassionate leader in the industry, setting a remarkable example of how a franchise can truly make an impact.
