Let us tell you a story...

First, There Was a Woman

Originally from Nova Scotia but raised in Toronto, Lisa has always been a creative person. She thought: “There’s nothing more fascinating than a simple idea in my head transforming into the pattern, the shape, the product!” So, she went to a fashion design school to pursue her dreams.

Do you know the feeling when the life makes you put the biggest dreams on hold? After a divorce, Lisa had to focus on working full-time while raising two kids on her own and she always had some side hustle to support her family...

And Then, There Was a Dog

One day Lisa’s daughter brought home a dog. A tiny, white, playful Maltipoo. They named him Dallas, and shortly after Lisa realized that Dallas was that precious puzzle her heart has been missing.

Lisa: “It was Dallas’ graduation day from the obedience training school, and I couldn’t find anything fashionable and adorable enough for him to wear. So, I sat down and made a collar and a bow tie for him from scratch. The set was a hit! And that’s how it all began…

Finally, There Is Always a Cause

Today, Paws for a Kaause is the ethical brand on a mission to celebrate creativity and offer up something new and exciting in the pet collar industry.

As a single mom and a pet lover, Kauuse’s founder Lisa chooses to donate part of all proceeds to two Canadian charities: Single Moms in Progress & Guardian’s Best for animal rescues. This way, each beautiful item you purchase at Kaause is a step forward to a happier life of a mother and a pet in need.

That's how we do it:


We handpick high quality fabrics. Always durable and soft, 100% cotton.

Customized design

Our small Canadian team uses your pet’s measurements, name, and favourite print. 

Voila, there you have it

Now your pooch is a real fashionista with a golden heart! Part of Kaause’s proceeds always go to Canadian charities.

Whether you’re looking for a handmade bow tie, comfortable collar, leash, or a stylish bandana, we have something unique for your pet!
