Chommies for dogs*

Dogs make lives better. And there are some incredible people dedicated to making dogs’ lives better. 

Our Chommies for life* programme supports them in the important work they do. 

We’ve started in our own backyard by partnering with local animal welfare organisations and community projects in Cape Town and the surrounds.

The Underdog Project

A registered Non-Profit and Public Benefit Organisation, The Underdog Project works with vulnerable children and dogs in Cape Town. In their mutually-beneficial workshops, at-risk youth learn life skills through therapeutic, animal-assisted activities that simultaneously socialise and train shelter dogs for a better chance of being re-homed.

10% of the proceeds from our Mount Nelson x Chommies collaboration are donated to The Underdog Project. All donations from Chommies support the Peer Leader Programme which teaches leadership qualities and prepares their young participants for their transition into the workforce. Visit their website if you’d like to learn more or support them directly. 

Sidewalk Specials

Sidewalk Specials is a dog rescue organisation in De Doorns in the Cape Winelands that helps township-based families care for their pets through free vet care, sterilisation and dog kennels. 

Each sale from our Rainbow Collection provides a De Doorns dog with a much-needed clinic visit which includes sterilisation and vetting.

Adora-Bull Terrier Rescue and Rehabilitation

Adora-Bull Terrier Rescue and Rehabilitation is a non-profit organisation based in Gauteng, South Africa, which facilitates the rescue, rehabilitation and rehoming of Bull Terrier dogs countrywide.

Taking one of our Do Good Dogs home means supporting a good cause with all profits going towards the funding of a satellite shelter for dogs in need in the Cape.

Each Do Good Dog is handmade from yarn offcuts by the Chommies knitters. Leather leftovers from our production studio are repurposed to make each a miniature Chommies collar that show these puppies they belong. These scruffy, fuzzy Chommies mohair mutts are available to purchase and adopt from EBONY/CURATED (Franschhoek) and Chommies' retail stores. They’re a lovable, ragtag litter, each with their own quirks, colours and character—just like real rescues.
