World by the Tail, Inc., donates a portion of our annual income to non-profit organizations. At the end of each year, staff members choose animal-related organizations and donations are made in their names by World by the Tail. Occasionally, we also donate ClayPaws® Kits and other goods and services to animal-related fundraisers and local schools.


Here are the highlights of our philanthropy efforts in 2018:
