Atomic Dog is one of our favorite lines of apparel (for humans), launched last year, by Sara Laskow who lives in LA with her husband, young daughter and two dogs – Maggie and Salty.
Inspired by a friend who runs t-shirt company Rescue Strong, Sara launched Atomic Dog as a way to be able to support rescue organizations after she had her daughter, Molly, and couldn’t be as hands-on. A portion of all proceeds go to various rescue organizations close to Sara’s heart.
“We donate 50% of all proceeds from the Corgi shirts to Queen’s Best Stumpy Dog Rescue. Not only am I obsessed with Corgis, but they really do amazing work and take in dogs with serious issues that don’t have a great chance at adoption. A lot of people purchase Corgis because they’re so cute, but they don’t do their research, and when they end up with a dog with behavioral, or severe medical issues, they dump or surrender them. QBSDR is always there to pick up the pieces; they do such an amazing
job with these dogs and they love them like they are their own." AWWW, who doesn't love Corgi butts?
“I’m a huge “Hamildork” (I love Hamilton, the musical) and when I saw the touring production in LA, I had come to find the person who plays Laurens/Phillip Hamilton. I knew he had a Golden Retriever so I waited for him after the show and gave him a Stay Golden shirt and told him what the company was working towards. He shared it on Instagram and I’ve seen him wearing the shirt on a few of his Insta-stories, which makes
me happy. Lin Manuel Miranda is my next goal!”
All dogs should be happy dogs
