Canadian multi-media artist Deborah Groenheyde has had rescue dogs as part of her family for years, and knows first-hand the benefits these relationships bring to both humans and animals. When she started The Hand and Paw Project™ it was always part of her business plan to pay forward the love she’d found from her rescues, and thanks to the overwhelming support of her customers she’s been able to spread that love all over the globe.
Since 2015, with the help of everyone who has bought a piece of Hand and Paw Project™ jewelry, we’ve been able to help organizations in England, Scotland, Thailand, the United States, and at home in Canada. Many of these organizations rely solely on donations, and everyone at the Hand and Paw Project™ is grateful for the opportunity to support them in our shared mission of compassion.
Some of these organizations that benefit: From The Heart Rescue, ARF, BC Guide Dogs, Alberta Guide Dogs, VICD (See Below), Operation Freedom Paws, Paws of Hawaii, Broken Promises Rescue, SPCA, and many others.
Thank you for helping us to continue providing financial support to animals in need.

One of Many Great Stories
"Meet Sarge, my loyal companion and best friend for the past 6.5 years. Sarge is more than just a dog to me, he's a lifesaver.
Sarge is a service dog from VICD SERVICES DOG BC & ALBERTA, a division of BC and Alberta guide dog program.
He's been by my side through thick and thin, helping me reduce and eliminate stress by grounding me, waking me up when I get bad dreams, letting me know when I have low blood sugar, and getting me out of my basement and going out of the house.
Sarge has been a true blessing in my life. He's helped me get out for walks and socializing with the dogs friends, and has truly helped me get my quality of life back.
I wouldn't be here today if it wasn't for Sarge. He's not just a pet, he's a true friend, and I am so grateful for his companionship. Thank you, Sarge, for always being there for me."
