About Mission Driven

Mission Driven helps long-term shelter pets find forever homes while creating unique apparel and goods for dog and cat lovers.

Scott spends seven days a week visiting local and rural animal shelters to meet and get to know their longest-term residents. He starts slowly by talking to them and offering treats, and day by day gains a little more trust so he can walk them, play with them, and show them that he can be trusted.

He then shares their story on social media with photographs and videos to get them adopted by the perfect family. If the dog requires medical attention, as they often do, he raises money for their treatment. While visiting the long-term shelter dogs, he doesn't forget to get 30 ice cream treats for all the other dogs in the shelter.

The sale of our apparel and goods helps fund the animal rescue work Scott does every day.
