Playing Matchmaker: Finding Your Furry Best Friend with Ruffwear

If you’ve been paying attention over the years, you know that Cairn HQ can often have just as many dogs as humans in attendance on any given workday. Ask just about any member of the Cairn Crew and they’ll tell you that their dog is their best adventure buddy. That’s why Ruffwear’s RAD Adoption Program warms our heart and makes us proud to be neighbors and partners with a brand that truly embodies its mission.

Ruffwear's mission is to build performance dog gear to enhance and inspire exploration for outdoor adventurers and their human companions. But what about all of the four-legged friends out there that are seeking adventure, but haven't found their human companion yet? Ruffwear, with the help of Best Friends Animal Society, launched the Ruffwear RAD Adoption Program to help connect active dogs seeking fresh air with active people in need of an outdoor adventure partner. Basically, Ruffwear helps play matchmaker between Ruffwear fans looking for their new best friend and active dogs hand-selected by Best Friends Animal Society.

Even better? Ruffwear will cover all adoption fees and air travel expenses for dogs adopted through the RAD Adoption Program, as well as provide them with new collars and leashes! Is it time for you to meet your best friend? Learn more about the program by visiting:
