Nearly 7 years ago, Hendrick & Co. founder David Hendrickson met a 6-month-old Chihuahua puppy at the local shelter. David soon learned that the puppy had been poisoned via his mother who had ingested household chemicals. William, as he would be called, was not expected to live for long. David adopted William that same day, if only to give him the best last few weeks of his life. Now, William is healthy, happy and the inspiration behind Hendrick & Co.

Wanting to help the same shelters and rescues that saved William, David founded Hendrick & Co. in 2011. What began with a simple idea that one tee shirt can save an animal in need has grown into a powerful movement, with hundreds of products, that support more than 400 local animal shelters, rescues and sanctuaries across the nation.

Every product, from shirts and tanks to bracelets,totes, dog hoodies and leashes, triggers a $10 donation to save animals and support local animal nonprofits.

Based in Anaheim, California, Hendrick & Co. is a vehicle that connects local animal nonprofits with people, from all walks of life, who want to join in our sole mission to save animals in need. Through the sale of every product, Hendrick & Co. has given more than $400,000 to save animals, especially those who have fallen victim to severe abuse, neglect, torture and abandonment.

Saving animals has never looked so good!

David Hendrickson
Chief Animal Saver

Born and raised in Northern San Diego, David Hendrickson is the Chief Animal Saver at Hendrick & Co. His love of animals started early in life when, at the age of 7, his family adopted their first rescue dog. A triplet, David and his brothers frequently volunteered at local animal shelters and grew up with 5 rescues that became a part of his family and a way of life. David soon realized the amazing role local animal shelters and rescue programs play on the front lines of saving animals.

Inspired by his own rescue dog William, David started Hendrick & Co. with the simple idea that a shirt can save an animal in need. Initially partnering with local nonprofits in Southern California, David has expanded the network of nonprofit partners nationally -- now over 300 strong. He makes frequent trips to schools to carry the message of saving animals to a younger generation. And, he has been sought after and featured in the likes of the Los Angeles Times, Entrepreneur Magazine, Fast Company, Modern Dog, Rescue Magazine and NBC.

On top of overseeing the entire Hendrick & Co. operations and strategy, David continues to design the company's shirts and manage The Hendrickson Post, an online news portal for all things animals. In August of 2014, David also launched a new initiative, RescueNav, a map-based application that connects animal-lovers together with rescues and shelters to raise much-needed funds, identify new foster families, encourage pet adoptions and transporters.

David lives in Orange County, California with his three rescue dogs, William, Oliver and Tayler.
