How does my purchase help Smiling Dog Coffee partnered organizations?

When you purchase a Smiling Dog Coffee product line, 25% of the proceeds from your order are pooled along with everyone else who purchases from that line. At the beginning of every month we divide the donations up from the pooled purchases and send donations to our partners.

If you purchase our coffees from one of our retailers then the portion of the proceeds will go to the partner organization in that region that you made your retail purchase from.

Our partners use these funds to help feed, get veterinary care and training so they can be placed in loving homes for a second chance at happiness. Many become service dogs for our wounded military veterans. Our funding also helps them rescue more animals from high kill shelters to be cared for and re-homed.


Where do you ship to and how can I save money on shipping?

We currently ship to the United States, Canada and the U.K.. We will be shipping to certain other countries in the near future.

Shipping costs have increased dramatically in the past years and we always look for ways to ship you the best coffees at the best rates. Coffee shipments of under a pound have the option to ship First Class. This is a great option as tracking is included and usually takes the same amount of time for delivery as Priority Mail.
All other packages are shipped Priority Mail and cost is based on your location and weight/size.
The best way to save money with shipping is to take advantage of our Free Priority Mail Shipping when you purchase $49 or more. Often times adding another box/bag of coffee will get you the free shipping and will be almost the same as paying for shipping itself.
Whenever there is a cheaper way to ship or save you money we will always offer that option. We thank you for your understanding and do appreciate all your support to help us with our mission.
