Tote Tails - Personalized Pet Themed Gifts for Animal Lovers
Tote Tails is a brand name line of personalizable and customizable pet themed gifts and accessories. Our customers can create their very own personalized pet themed tote bags and throw pillows online, or at the special events and farmers markets that we attend throughout the Northern California region.
The idea for this company came about as three friends, Amitie, Devin and Jack, were figuring out how they could best contribute to the animal welfare organizations which they held dear, while at the same time capitalizing on their town going bag-less.
Tote Tails has partnered with the SPCA and Humane Society and has pledged to donate 10% of every purchase to these wonderful organizations! These donations will go towards supporting local animal shelters and raising awareness for shelter adoptions. By purchasing these fun and interactive bags you're not only helping the environment, you're helping save a life as well.
