I am adding to this post due to the fact that after posting it, I received several comments from people (as can be seen below) who had negative shared experiences with the company. Not receiving their paid for products and not being able to successfully communicate with the company are the common themes. As a huge animal lover, I would never knowingly endorse a company that does not have animals’ best interests at heart and that does not treat their customers as they should.
The original post is below but is not necessarily an accurate portrayal of The Buddy Bandana.

So I saw that Buddy Bandanas was looking for brand ambassadors and I was all over it. Was it because I absolutely love the idea of matching my dog? Actually, yes. Because to me, there’s nothing cuter than a dog wearing a bandana, bow tie, or a little outfit. And, you’re telling me that I could have a scrunchie to match?? Shut up and take my money!
And then I looked into the company and I was really all over it.
You see, not only are these bandanas and scrunchies handmade but the company’s mission is to help homeless animals. They have the mission of helping the countless dogs in the shelters. Purchasing these products helps them donate money to dogs in need. There is no bad there.
In their words – “The Buddy Bandana was born in Boston in 2019. Our mission is to spread awareness and raise money for rescue organizations across the country. Each year approximately 1.5 Million shelter animals are euthanized, (670,000 dogs). We pride ourselves on donating to no kill shelters to support and save animals in need.”
This is a cause close to my heart. The overpopulation of animals, specifically dogs, in this case, is both heartbreaking and infuriating. And as the humans, I feel it is our responsibility to do what we can. And, this is a pretty easy way to help. Not to mention an adorable way!
