How far that little candle throws its beams! So shines a good deed in a naughty world. – William Shakespeare
A play on the concepts of light + dark, Light + Bark is a candle company committed to spreading the light of goodness in the world while making the best and safest quality scented soy candles around. In particular, our mission is focused on shedding light on rescue, volunteerism and adoption of rescue + shelter dogs. We support all good deeds and you don’t necessarily need to love dogs to love our candles + let them light up your space (although, we highly recommend it ;)).
Meet the Maker:
Jenni, founder of Light + Bark, is a creative type whose space has always been peppered with candles. She loves the ambiance that a flickering candle creates and the profound way that scent affects our mood + memory.
While volunteering with rescue and shelter dogs and brainstorming non-traditional methods of fundraising as a way to better engage the community to give back, she was inspired to learn to make + sell candles. Her entrepreneurial calling was born. Jenni married her passion with her talents in candle making, branding + marketing and founded the original company DOG Candle Co in 2017, which has evolved to Light + Bark in 2020.
In addition to making premium scented soy candles, Jenni is a rescue dog mom, advocate + volunteer who is always spreading good deeds for dogs.
Light + Bark’s mission takes many forms:
- We donate a portion of our proceeds to the Maricopa County Animal Care & Control shelter via Community Canine Project, a group that Jenni volunteers with. These donations help enrich dogs’ lives while in the shelter environment and help them to get adopted. Think things like enrichment toys, bully sticks, adoption incentives and shelter improvements.
- We use our platforms for talking about rescue, volunteerism + adoption to encourage followers to get inspired + get involved. We want you to have the great feeling of doing good for others, too, and join us in helping our doggo community!
- We regularly donate products and host candle making parties for shelters/rescues for fundraising. Contact us if you are a rescue or shelter looking for fundraising opportunities.. We would love to help!
