Handcrafted in Brooklyn – you’ll love these marine-grade rope leads from Found My Animal


Bright and early one late August morning.
One week until we launch Scratch.
In struts Vinnie, a beautiful German Shepherd.

Once we got over the big fella’s good looks, our eyes turned to his bright red lead. In a sign that fashion designers are bored of humans and have moved on to better creatures, we discovered that it was straight out of Brooklyn.

Found My Animal started twelve years ago and the brand’s trademark nautical aesthetic has taken off, with stockists around the world. More than that, you get a sense that the founders don’t care so much about making a profit as increasing awareness of the need for adoption.

Every Found My Animal lead and collar is stamped FOUND tag to celebrate adoption awareness.

Beyond the mission, their products are top notch. You’ll find a wide range of colours – many of which are hand dyed in their Brooklyn studio. The rope is material that can hold hundreds of KGs. The metal is solid brass too.

You’ll find plenty of carefully crafted colours and leather finishes in the range

Why we love Found My Animal

  • Their leather is domestically sourced (they’re US-based)
  • Their rope is marine grade. Even the most energetic big dog is no match for Found My Animal
  • They use their social media to share dogs for adoption, not just to sell products.
  • Found My Animal products are beautiful and thoughtfully designed
  • Attached to each collar is a stamped FOUND tag to celebrate adoption awareness.
