100% of net proceeds support Cedar Valley-based P.E.T.P.A.L.S., an organization arranging volunteers with well-behaved, fun-loving canine-friends to visit hospitals, adult day care centers, nursing homes, preschools, group homes, and college campuses.
Designed to be pawsitively the best!
Unlike traditional square and triangle bandanas, these are specially cut so it's easier to tie and stay in place.
And like most "Iowa love" apparel and goods, these bandanas are Made in Iowa. They are hand cut and stitched in Waterloo and the "Iowa love" Symbol is hand applied in Cedar Falls by volunteers of P.E.T.P.A.L.S.!
Oh, and how cute! The "Iowa love" Symbol features a doggie paw print! Awww.

About "Iowa love"
Our Symbol says it all. . . Is it "Iowa" or is it "love"? It's both!
“Iowa love” is a mission-driven apparel & goods brand supporting a community of folks that love their hometown, small businesses, artisans, and nonprofits.
This is accomplished by partnering with Iowa-based vendors and artisans to create apparel and gifts featuring the "Iowa love" Symbol.
"Iowa love" apparel and goods are brought to communities statewide through a network of locally owned “Hometown Retail Partners."
50% of quarterly profits donated to causes and nonprofits throughout Iowa.
P.E.T. P.A.L.S. was organized in June 1983 in cooperation with the Cedar Bend Humane Society (formerly the Black Hawk Humane Society). P.E.T. P.A.L.S. is an all-volunteer Animal-Assisted Therapy and activities program. Trained volunteers log 10,000+ hours annually, visiting with the residents of public and private care facilities, hospitals, adult day care centers, group homes, schools, day cares and individuals within the Black Hawk County area. The animal partners in P.E.T. P.A.L.S. are personal pets of the volunteers. The pets are screened for health, temperament, and suitability as a “therapy” dog, cat, or other domestic species.
P.E.T. P.A.L.S. volunteers are assigned to either a “team” which visits a facility on a regular basis or an individual. The “teams” are guided by the social worker or activity director within the facility they are visiting. Other volunteers work individually on a case by case basis.
P.E.T. P.A.L.S. has provided a model for other animal-assisted therapy programs and continues to serve as a state-wide resource center. It offers guidelines and current information concerning issues about animal-assisted therapy, the human-companion animal bond, specific programs, and provides guest speakers on these topics.
