‘Project Doggie Jacket’ is a Special Fundraiser for Animal Rescue Charities in BC. Welcome Everyone!

For each Goochie Poochie doggie jacket purchased through, $5 will be donated to us!

Critteraid was approached to be involved in this awesome fundraising project by animal lovers and compulsive fundraisers Helen Siwak & Vlassis Xanthopoulos from Kitsilano Kitty’s Closet and their friend Noelle King from Noelle’s Pet Love in Vancouver, BC. Even their doggie model is a rescue! Her name is Rue.

After scooping up 1,200 doggie jackets online for literally pennies on the dollar, Helen & Vlassis decided that the time is perfect for a new fundraiser that would support any animal rescue group in BC that wanted to come on board.

Please support our continued action by going to – scroll down the page to “Browse by Category”, and select Project Doggie Jacket. There are two styles – trench coat and rain hoodie – available in multiple colours. Depending on size – XS to Large – the prices are $8-$15. Cute, functional and definitely affordable! $5 from each sale goes directly to us. Make sure when you ‘Check Out’ indicate in the Comments Box the name of our rescue so that we get our $5 donation.

Our fundraising goal with this doggie jacket project is $1,000 so we need to push and get 200 doggie jackets onto the backs of our furry friends to keep them warm and dry this fall. Please share this page with everyone you know that loves animals or is a shopaholic with lots of doggie friends!

Here is the link to the Facebook Event

If you have any questions about the jackets, shipping, etc. contact Helen directly at to get the answers you need.

All orders will be mailed (shipping costs will be calculated by the website) unless weekend pick-up arrangements are made. Helen & Vlassis live in Kitsilano, just off West 4th and Balsam. Please indicate in the comments section that you would like to pick-up your order and they will email you with a pick-up date. Pick-up’s can be paid in advance with PayPal or onsite with cash.

All online orders are payable with your PayPal account, Visa or Mastercard.

Thank you so much for being an animal lover and supporting our cause!

Best wishes,
