good WORKS

Designed to provide support to community-based organizations that help people become more self-sufficient and that enrich their lives.

Sonya Mackintosh believes in giving back to her community. That's why smARTWORKS, Inc. contributes to the local economy in ways specifically pertaining to animal rights, cultural organizations and health issues that are close to her.

How it Works

Each season a selection of styles and an organization are paired. 15% of the sales of those items will be donated to the organization. All goodWORKS items will have a * next to its color option.

This Season's Selection

This season's selection, available from November 2018 - March 2019, will benefit Big Fluffy Dog Rescue.

Big Fluffy Dog Rescue

Big Fluffy Dog Rescue is a 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to helping giant breed and mixed breed dogs in need. Their dogs come in to rescue for many different reasons. Many were abandoned at high kill shelters. Some were turned in by owners who could not properly care for them and still others are failed livestock guardian dogs. Regardless of their origins, their goal for every dog we have is the same: a safe, happy home where each dog is a well-loved member of the family.

Sonya has chosen Big Fluffy Dog Rescue because the newest addition to her family came from there! Sonya has traditionally raised Labradors but recently began researching smaller breeds with longer lifespans after the passing of one of her beloved Labs. Sonya chanced upon a picture of Ellie online, and her heart skipped a beat. Ellie looked just like the dogs that Sonya's grandmother, Gwen Mackintosh, had raised and registered with The Kennel Club: the Lancashire Heeler.

Ellie had been surrendered to the Rescue due to "difficult" behavior issues. Sonya applied through Big Fluffy Dog Rescue to adopt Ellie and was impressed with the professionalism of their service. It's clear that they LOVE their dogs and value placing them in a home that would be their best match above all.

When Ellie came to live with Sonya's family, she had Ellie's DNA tested. The results put Ellie's behavior into perfect perspective. Part Working Kelpie, known for its unlimited energy, and part American Eskimo Dog, noted for its quick and clever mind, Ellie is a bundle of energy with a keen intelligence. In other words, she's always ready to play, explore, get to work, and even rustle up some trouble if she can with her best friend, Tessa! She brings joy to Sonya's home and the smARTWORKS studio. Thank you Big Fluffy Dogs!
