About Don’t Be Cruel

Is Don’t Be Cruel a non-profit organization?
We currently don’t have a 501c3 designation. However, we are working on it. In the meantime, it’s not going to stop us from donating all our profits to local animal rescue organizations.

Why do you only donate to New York and New Jersey animal shelters and rescues?
We are big believes in starting awareness in your own community. Since we are based in East Rutherford, NJ it’s only logical to start with our surrounding environment to spread the word about adopting pets. Building a strong community will help us spread the word faster. In addition, we do visit these shelters from time to time to see the type of environment the animals are in and to make in-person donations. Don’t fret, we are planning to expand to other states very soon.
