Rescue Dogs Take Some Photos

July 27, 2020

Nathanael Strickland launched his dog gear brand, Boston Made, with a mission to give back.

A Chattanooga native is using his dog gear and fashion business to give a little love to rescue animals.

Over the weekend, the brand featured pups from McKamey Animal Center in a photoshoot.
After losing his emotional support dog, Boston, Nathanael Strickland found a way to keep loving on animals.

“I just want to offer good quality dog coats and a unique shopping experience in honor of my dog, Boston,” he said.

Strickland launched his dog gear brand, Boston Made, with a mission to give back. This weekend, he held a photoshoot at McKamey, making their rescues star models.

“I just want to show people that there are rescue animals out there that do need adoption and I want to feature these rescue animals on our website,” he said.

Strickland also donated 50 harnesses to the shelter for walks and hikes with the pups. For him, it’s good business to do good for others.
“That’s always going to be the backbone of who I am and who Boston Made is,” he said. “We are committed to giving back a portion of our profit back to nonprofit animal rescues such as McKamey.”
Above everything, Strickland wants people to remember even though the dogs look like pro models now, they’re still looking for forever homes.
Boston Made is opening up a brick and mortar soon on Cherokee Boulevard.
