Valgray & Project Cuddles & Crunchies! A Story To Get Tails Wagging

August 13, 2021

Project Cuddles & Crunchies did it! Valgray successfully facilitated an incredible donation to a wonderful organisation. Your love and support for Valgray is a blessing in more ways than one. Just ask the recipients of Project Cuddles & Crunchies, a Valgray charity initiative.

We have documented our phenomenal experience with the F.A.L.L.E.N. Angels Pet Rescue and a number of their resident doggos who are currently up for adoption. For those who have not yet driven out to the F.A.L.L.E.N. Angels Pet Rescue farm, we're bringing a little piece of the farm to you. So, without further ado, let us jump right in!

When you think of a hero, who comes to mind?

We may have felt like heroes a few weeks ago when we arrived at the F.A.L.L.E.N. Angels Pet Rescue farm with our Project Cuddles & Crunchies donations, but the real heroes are ALL OF YOU!
We would not have been able to give back on the scale that we did if we didn't have your support.

So many of you have faced some very tough financial times over the past year and a half, yet you still managed to support Valgray; which in turn has provided full bellies and warm blankies to hundreds of dogs in need.

Earlier this year, we decided it was time for another blanket drive to help keep some beautiful shelter souls warm during the cold winter months. We asked YOU, our online audience, to recommend a shelter in need.

Clearly, the heavens shone their light on F.A.L.L.E.N. Angels Pet Rescue because we got an overwhelming number of recommendations for this domestic animal rescue charity. 

Let's get to know more about F.A.L.L.E.N. Angels Pet Rescue! As a registered NPO, Fallen Angels focuses on the rescue, rehabilitation and re-homing of domestic animals. Any Forgotten, Abandoned, Lost, Lonely, Emaciated and Neglected animal is a FALLEN Angel and is important to this organisation. F.A.L.L.E.N. Angels Pet Rescue devote its entire existence to living up to its mission… From Torn to Reborn!

Following an outcry for blankets and dry dog food, we launched Project Cuddles & Crunchies to help all the animals in the care of the F.A.L.L.E.N. Angels team. During June and July 2021, we urged you to support us in our pledged to donate a portion of every Valgray sale to the project fund for blankets and food for the fur babies in need.

And support us you DID!

We arrived at F.A.L.L.E.N. Angels Pet Rescue farm on Saturday, 31st July 2021, with an awe-inspiring amount of cosy blankets and dry dog food. This donation was all thanks to every single person who supported us over those past two months. It was also thanks to everyone who came before them, all of you who have helped us grow and enabled us to achieve all the fantastic things we have set our minds to so far.

We cannot say this enough, THANK YOU!

We spent the day on the F.A.L.L.E.N. Angels farm getting to know the fantastic volunteers and the dazzling doggos who currently call the farm home. Luckily, we managed to snap some sweet shots, so you can get to know the pooches too.

At F.A.L.L.E.N. Angels Pet Rescue, the team takes care of more than 200 animals at any given time. The charity relies heavily on the helping hands of volunteers and charitable donations. The property is well-kept, large, and there isn't a single doggo who does not have a space big enough to run around. But, what these fur babies really need is a safe, warm home and a loving family.

This brings us to the next bit of exciting news…

For the remainder of 2021, we are sponsoring a Valgray Collar & Leash Set to every doggo adopted through F.A.L.L.E.N. Angels Pet Rescue. We feel these good bois and girls have suffered enough, and they deserve a little bit of luxury in their lives.

It was simply impossible to feature all the angels at the farm, but these are a few of the beauties we met. There are so many pups at F.A.L.L.E.N. Angels Pet Rescue who are looking for loving homes.

If any of the doggos we have featured above steals your heart, please get in touch with F.A.L.L.E.N. Angels Pet Rescue on the following:

Sometimes when you know, YOU KNOW.

Download an Adoption Application Form and send it through to the F.A.L.L.E.N. Angels Pet Rescue team straight away! Or, if adoption is not an option for you, consider fostering a lonely soul while they look for a forever home. Send through your Foster Application Form when you are ready.

Last but not least, please consider donating to shelters and charities. No matter how small, every little bit helps more than you know. A little spring cleaning moment can really assist a charity. Get rid of old and unused collars, leashes, bowls, beds, blankies, and - heck, even those old toys are a huge help.

Thanks to the success of Project Cuddles & Crunchies, we have more drive than ever before! We want to serve our community not only with premium pet products but also by providing help to shelters that are in desperate need. As a business in the pet industry, we have a duty to take care of our four-legged friends.

A HUGE THANK YOU for the incredible support from each and every one of you. Please keep on supporting small, local businesses through purchases and on social media.

We hope you found this project as inspiring as we have! We would love to draw even more inspo from your fantastic rescue experiences and stories. Start a conversation and share your stories in the comments below, or talk to us on social media.

Collars for all dog sizes!

Valgray is one of the few brands that cater for the truly tiny pooch with our X-Small collars. We also go the extra mile to ensure we cater for the giant breeds with measurements reaching up to 75cm.

Never try to guess your dog's neck size! Avoid disappointment by first making sure you measure your pup’s neck for the most accurate sizing.

Then, refer to our sizing chart below to find the most appropriate collar size for your doggie. Remember to select a collar size that will fit comfortably and allow for movement.

Personal customisation

We try our best to cater to every breed, but some doggos might need a little extra at-home customisation to achieve the perfect fit. Our PVC-coated nylon straps are soft, making adjustments at home very easy. Use a standard leather punching tool to add additional holes, or use a utility knife to trim the length of your collar.
