Supporting local businesses is high on the priority list for those of us at GDU. But knowing we have the most AMAZING small business supporting US, THAT is beyond incredible.

The Bagel Ladies craft intensely delicious Bagels, which they sell online and at the Charlottesville City Market. But apart from the yummy goodness they provide, they ALSO selflessly create and sell Compassion Bracelets, and Donate 100%. (Yes 100 Percent!) of the proceeds to The Green Dogs Unleashed Mission! They spend countless hours building these perfect little jewelry gems, all for the good of the animals. We are so thankful to have them as friends, as GDU family, and as such amazing supporters in our network. Please check out the Compassion Bracelets, and try their scrumptious bagels while you are visiting their site!
