Felix Chien’s Dogs In Need charity program. Felix Chien’s charity program donates a percentage of our month’s sales to an organization dedicated to helping Dogs In Need. The charity that receives our donation changes month to month and varies in location, size and specialty efforts. This program also includes a percentage of our month's sales from our sister brand, Fetcher Bay! While shopping around for something that will make you and your dog happy, you can also feel good knowing that you are helping dogs that are still searching for their forever home or recovering from hardships of their past.
