Our Story

Hendrick & Co. was founded in 2011 simply to save animals in need. With every shirt, hoodie, bracelet or dog accessory purchased, Hendrick & Co. delivers a $10 donation to save animals. More than 600 rescues, shelters and sanctuaries in the U.S. and Canada have partnered with Hendrick & Co. and to date, Hendrick & Co. has donated more than $1 million. 

"I started Hendrick & Co. for one reason only – to save animals in need. And, it begins with you. Only together can we save those who have been abused, those who need a voice and those who just need love."

- David Hendrickson, H&C Founder


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 Hendrickson founded Hendrick & Co. in 2011. What began with a simple idea that one rescue tee can save an animal in need has grown into a powerful movement, with hundreds of products, that support more than 600 local animal shelters, rescues and sanctuaries across the nation.

Every product, from rescue tees and tanks to bracelets,totes, dog hoodies and leashes, triggers a $10 donation to save animals and support local animal rescues and shelters.

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 purchase of human and animal apparel and accessories, Hendrick & Co. has given more than $1 million to save animals, especially those who have fallen victim to severe abuse, neglect, torture and abandonment.

Saving animals has never looked so good! Gifts that give back and gifts that save animals is at the heart of what we do.
