THE STORY BEHIND THE RED COLLAR NAME

IN HONOR OF ELLIE

ELLIE WAS LEE’S YELLOW LABRADOR AND VALENTINE (BORN ON FEB. 14, 2005 / DIED ON AUG. 1, 2017). AFTER HER PASSING, LEE WAS INSPIRED TO MAKE A FEW CHANGES TO HIS LIFE, INCLUDING SELLING HIS HOUSE, QUITTING HIS CORPORATE JOB, AND FOUNDING RED COLLAR MARKETING TO ALWAYS REMEMBER AND BE INSPIRED BY ELLIE’S SPIRIT OF LIVING BOLDLY AND DOING GOOD. 

AND HER RED COLLAR

ELLIE’S RED COLLAR WAS ONE OF HER DEFINING FEATURES. NO OTHER COLOR SUITED HER, BUT RED. WE BELIEVE ALL BRANDS HAVE THAT DEFINING FEATURE–LIKE ELLIE’S RED COLLAR–THAT DEFINES WHO THEY ARE AND TRULY SETS THEM APART FROM THEIR COMPETITION. LET US HELP YOU FIND YOUR ‘RED COLLAR’!
