I hinted in my previous blog post that big things were coming down the pipe for hART Sense Design. Now, one of those big things is here! As the 2016 holiday season starts getting into gear, we are partnering with Above & Beyond English Setter Rescue to save some canine lives and help English Setters get home for Christmas. Whether a Setter or some other breed is your favorite, read on if you are a true dog lover.
There are many dogs in this country who, through no fault of their own, find themselves homeless, neglected, or abused. There are also many different dog rescue organizations that attempt to alleviate this problem. Among them, Above & Beyond English Setter Rescue truly lives up to its name. From an extremely involved Board of Directors - all volunteers who wear multiple hats in the organization, over the team of volunteer Fosters and Transporters, to even licensed practicing Veterinarians, this 501c3 non-profit goes above and beyond for every Setter they rescue. Even though Setters are their priority, every now and then, a mixed breed or a different purebred canine ends up being a grateful recipient of their generosity. As just one example of what is being offered to these dogs to give them a chance at a better life, take a look at the "Florida Five" (now down to Four as one has already been adopted), five English Setters recently rescued from a hoarding situation in Florida.
As you may or may not know, our late Studio Security Manager, Wild Gage Louie, the fastest tail wag in the West, was originally adopted from Above & Beyond English Setter Rescue. He too went through the grueling heartworm treatment as a young pup rescued in North Carolina. Then, when he got a clean bill of health, he was transported to us by a dedicated team of volunteer drivers all the way to Kansas, where we lived at the time. That is why, in his honor and his memory, we support Above & Beyond ESR.
Now, this is where YOU, our readers and dog lovers, come in. Now through December 15th, for every order from our online shop received during the fundraiser period, hART Sense Design will be donating 30% to A&B ESR to further the cause of Setter rescue. But that's not all!

For most people on this side of the Big Pond, October is the month of tricks and treats. In hART Sense Design studio, on the other hand, there are no tricks - only treats. That said, this week, we have several treats for you, our faithful readers.
First, you get a sneak peek at three new designs that just arrived in our shop: two one-off leather and copper necklaces and a new pair of copper dipped aspen leaf earrings for our Copper River collection. This earring style is a very limited edition, so if they rock your boat, better hurry and grab them before they are all gone.
Next, we have an exciting partnership announcement to make. At the end of this month and through most of the holiday season, we will be partnering with Above & Beyond English Setter Rescue to aid their fundraising efforts.
As you may or may not know, our dearly departed Studio Security Manager, Gage the English Setter, was adopted from Above & Beyond back in 2008. Ever since, we have supported this worthy non-profit both financially and through fostering and helping with transports. This season, we are going a step further and donating a percentage of our holiday sales to this worthy cause. Watch our home page, our blog, and social media for the official announcement later this month. You will be able to enjoy a special discount through mid-December while at the same time supporting rescue and re-homing of English Setters in need through your purchases from our shop. What a great way to get your holiday gift shopping done and at the same time, feel good about supporting a worthy cause!
Last but not least, if you have read this far, we have a special treat for you. This weekend only (October 8th and 9th), get an early start on your holiday shopping with our Flash Sale! Shop online and receive 25% discount when you enter coupon code QUARTERNDIME in the appropriate box at checkout. Discount applies to any and all items currently in stock, including new designs. Sale ends promptly at 11:59 pm MST on Sunday, October 9th.
Have a great weekend!
