$5 of each pin sale goes to #shadeoutdm!
At Texas Corgi Roundup in November 2019, my tent was across from the Shade Out DM people. I didn’t get a chance to speak to them, but I looked them up after the fact as I kept seeing a corg in a wheel chair prance around in front of their tent 💜
What is DM? DM stands for Degenerative Myelopathy, which would be the canine version of ALS/LouGehrig's Disease.
It affects over 100 dog breeds and is often misunderstood and misdiagnosed. Many people are unaware of this non-curable disease, so I want to help spread awareness, as it CAN be prevented by genetic testing prior to breeding & making well educated decisions.
I'm a huge fan of @wheelchaircorgi (her name is Penny). Give her a follow on IG if you don't already 💜
$5 of each Penny order will go to Shade Out DM, an organization dedicated to spreading awareness of DM in dogs. For more information, please visit www.shadeoutdm.org
This design was inspired by Penny and I wanted to show that just because a dog has DM and uses a wheel chair, doesn’t mean they aren’t happy or can’t do the things they love to do, even if it’s just in a different way (or if they have bad days).
These pins are currently being produced, and I expect them to ship out late this month or early May. I will collect the donation from each pre-order and hold it until I have the pins physically in hand.
Penny is 1.5 inches long with silver plating and two rubber backings.
Please adopt Penny and help spread awareness about DM 💜
Finish: Silver Plating
