A Love Note Valentine Giveaway

Love Note apparel line

I love stories of people following their passions. That’s the story behind Love Note, a very tiny fashion line based in the Kansas City area. In this post, Love Note founder Jessica Thomas talks about how the brand supports her love of dogs and design.

How did you get involved in animal welfare?

I have been a dog lover my whole life. I am currently 26 years old, engaged to be married in September and a proud dog mom! I have been working with dogs at a pet resort for almost 5 years. I rescued my first dog of my own in May of 2009. In the last year or so I started fostering with a rescue group one of my co-workers runs.

How did Love Note begin?

Love Note began in September of 2011. I had been thinking about starting my own clothing line for a while but I wanted it to be something different than every other line you see out there. So then I had the thought, why not give a portion of proceeds to animal rescue? That way it combines my love for fashion with my love for animals!

I instantly started researching ways to make my dream a reality. Once I had designs made and shirts ordered I gathered up a group of amazing friends and held a photo shoot! It was a blast! The first line of shirts released in October 2011.

Who creates the designs for Love Note products?

I create all of the designs for Love Note myself. I usually ask my fiancé for his opinion on everything though! All of the marketing, designing, ordering, etc. are all done by me!

What else should people know about Love Note?

Love Note shirts are all printed on American Apparel, which makes them all super comfortable! A portion of proceeds from every item purchased goes directly to animal rescue, specifically Love Note’s partner rescue, Friends of Parkville Animal Shelter (FOPAS).

You can find out more about FOPAS on their Facebook page or on their website, www.parkvilleshelter.com.

Who is the special dog in your life?

There are four special dogs in my life! My first dog I ever owned myself is Lyric, a longhaired Chihuahua who is almost 5-1/2 years old! I then rescued Solo, my almost 4-year-old Border Collie mix from FOPAS.

Love Note Chorus dog


Chorus came into my life as a stray that was found on the side of the road. I’m not sure what breed he is but he definitely has some terrier in him. He’s about 5 years old. Last is my sweet little Aria, a 2-year-old Maltipoo. I also have a cat named Treble, who is 1, and thinks she is a dog. 🙂

What are you giving your dogs for Valentine’s Day?

For Valentine’s Day this year my fiancé and I may be having our engagement pictures done, so the dogs will get a full day outside at the lake (which is one of their favorite spots)!

I live with two formerly wayward dogs. I care deeply about the environment, and I think gardening is a revolutionary act.

  1. LOVE NOTE LOVE! I love the tote! Would be perfect when I load up leash,harness, cookies, toys, and of course poo bags, when going to adoption events!

  2. First, I already LOVE Wayward Dogs on Facebook. 🙂

    Second, LOVE NOTE LOVE: It’s a two-way tie for my favorite product! I love the 2012 V-neck AND the Love Note Tee (the Cranberry colored one).

    Third, I’m getting all geared up for Valentine’s day now. I’m starting to get great ideas for my friends.

  3. LOVE NOTE LOVE! I adore that grey v-neck with the olive branch laurels on it. And now that I am a bona fide coffee drinker, I would love to show my doggy love at the office with that coffee cup (and the stickers)! 🙂

  4. LOVE NOTE LOVE! I’m in love with their v-neck shirt! So super cute! I also really love the coffee mug! Woo!

  5. LOVE NOTE LOVE! I love the cranberry colored t-shirt (in fact I may buy it right now), but most of all that a portion of proceeds go to rescue!!!! Woot!

  12. LOVE NOTE LOVE! I seriously can’t decide between the “Love Note Tee” and the “For The Dogs Tee” I love them both a lot! That travel mug would get a lot of use too!

    I’m ALL about animal rescue and I plan to adopt a rescue animal as soon as I can. Unfortunately that’ll be about a year from now since the apartments I’ll be moving in to don’t alow animals (except for cats, which I’m really allergic to) so I’ll have to wait. My grandma is also big into rescue aniamls. The seven dogs she currently has were all rescues, and all her pets before these were rescues as well! My papa rescued a white dog and I’ve rescued my own fair share of animals in the past few years!
