For every purchase of our 'Adopt Love' 4oz. travel candle, Big Moon Beeswax donates an 'Adopt Love' 4oz. travel candle to the animal rescues we work with listed below. These animal rescues use the candles for fundraising events and receive 100% of the sale of each candle.
Your thoughtful purchase of our 'Adopt Love' travel candles is an easy way to light up a life of an animal in need of rescuing, fostering and forever homes. What a beautiful way to shine your light in this world!
Each time we reach 120 'Adopt Love' candle contributions, we ship a case of candles to the chosen shelter or rescue. If you would like your shelter or rescue to be considered for our 'Adopt Love' candles, please tell us in the notes section of your candle purchase. If we have enough interest, we will contact them about a donation.

Back in November, 2013, there was a German Shepherd known as "Kennel #A1286989" at a high-kill animal shelter in Southern California. He was scheduled for euthanasia due to his numerous orthopedic issues even though he was only one year old. The German Shepherd Rescue of Orange County was unable to pull this pup out of the high-kill shelter because his medical needs far outweighed their financial ability to help him. Such a heartbreaking choice for a rescue that is dedicated to saving German Shepherds! Fortunately for Kennel #A1286989, a lot of caring people on the Facebook group, The German Shepherd Dog Community posted about him and he was adopted by the owner of Big Moon Beeswax (me) at the eleventh hour. Unlike many other dogs in high-kill shelters, this pup got his happy ending and now goes by the name of "Rogue." As Rogue's human, it's a lot easier calling him "Rogue" than Kennel #A1286989! Even though the German Shepherd Rescue of Orange County wasn't in a position to pull Rogue out of that high-kill shelter, they have been responsible for saving countless German Shepherds over the years! I personally know a number of people that have cherished canine family members saved through the GSROC and some of them volunteer for the rescue too. I am very particular about where my donation dollars go to as I want to see my hard-earned money in the right hands.
I want my money to actually go towards doing something good and not administrative fees and salaries etc. Every penny that is donated to the German Shepherd Rescue of Orange County actually goes to saving a German Shepherd from a high-kill shelter. It goes for the adoption costs the rescue incurs when they remove a dog from the high-kill shelter. The money goes for medical care and food for each dog while it is being fostered and waits for its forever home. Stay tuned for the Adopt Love Travel Candle that will be available from GSROC!
