Found My Animal

Adjustable The Abaco Ombre Rope Dog Leash

Hand dyed and crafted in a studio in New York, these leashes are hand-spliced to withstand hundreds of pounds of pull with the ends then "whipped" (an old nautical term) for additional durability. Fixed on the ends are solid brass lockable carabiners designed to allow additional safety for rescue pups big and small.

Nothing ages more beautifully than marine-grade rope and solid brass hardware. 

Wear this leash multiple ways- here are a few examples:

1. Hands-free, around the waist

2. Make a handle by clipping to the O-rings

3. Walk two dogs and form a handle with a simple knot in the center

It all started on a neighborhood walk in Brooklyn in 2006, Bethany Obrecht and her rescue dog - a handsome chihuahua named Walter - crossed paths with Anna Conway and her pooch - another rescue chihuahua named Walter! With so much in common, the two “Walters” and their Moms became fast friends - and together they would change the lives of many more rescue animals.

With a penchant for crafts, and inspiration from a fisherman in the family, the two designed and created their first leashes made with marine-grade rope, brass, and waxed canvas.

Made beautifully with 3 strand, hand spliced, whipped rope, they were an instant hit. Indeed, so many people stopped them in the street to admire their unique nautical leads, that the women decided to share them with others - and within a short time a new business, called Found My Animal was born.

Unique to each leash is a simple, numbered brass tag that reads “FOUND”. A simple message that reflects the company mission to promote animal adoption in a very direct way, by letting your pet wear your values.

To date, more than 117,000 of these numbered leashes have been sold. A whole line of pet products and accessories soon followed:
collars, harnesses, beds, bowls, and fashions for all your pets including cats, dogs, horses and even goats. See their full line of “accessories for adopted animals and their people” at www.foundmyanimal.com.

Part of the proceeds from their sales go to support animal welfare and rescue organizations with a whole section of their website dedicated to helping facilitate direct pet adoptions. Found My Animal …compassionate people, making beautiful artisan products with a meaningful purpose and message … all thanks to Walter!
