The best part is that designer-publisher Jes McKay Gilmore, who has taken pictures at several wildlife sanctuaries and volunteered at various animal shelters, donates 10 percent of her profits to support small nonprofits helping animals. "Even a small amount helps, and if each of us can help one animal, we can change the world," Jes says. "Many people aren't aware that a third of dogs in shelters are purebred or just how many of them are waiting. Each of these animals is an individual. My goal is making animal rescue personal." 

Her cool, quirky cards achieve that goal with style to spare. Get 'em here
