We believe that kindness goes a long way and it is our responsibility to lead by example.
Love for all living things
WHO WE ARE
RESQ/CO was born out of the particular circumstance of it’s founder, Genny Davila whose life was radically changed when she was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis which eventually forced her to leave her fast-paced career as an Art Director in the action sports industry. With new found time on her hands and her dog moose (who proved to be instrumental in her treatment and recovery) by her side, Genny got involved in local animal rescue organizations. She learned of the magnitude of shelter over-population and soon became a regular foster parent for shelter animals that needed homes. Eager to stay busy, creative and maintain her independence she turned to the things she loved: her dog and good design. She found her inspiration after many days spent seaside watching Moose and countless other dogs enjoy the fresh air and freedom. Utilizing her skills developed from years as a designer and combining them with her passion for helping animals, she drew from old techniques and fabrications used in boating and ranching and transformed them into quality, hand-made goods for dogs.
WHAT WE DO
The RESQ/CO brand maintains a steadfast commitment to solid construction and american made integrity. Drawing inspiration everywhere from dog beach to the horse stables, our products were designed with the discerning sea, horse and dog lover in mind who values craftsmanship & quality above all else. We utilize materials that will withstand the elements, evade corrosion and last the test of time. As a brand, through our actions, voice and product, we aspire to bring awareness and love to both animals and people in need.
WHAT WE BELIEVE
During the initial years of her diagnosis with MS, our founder often turned to the MS Society for knowledge and support. The experiences, love and support she received from the foundation solidified her belief in how special and life-changing organizations of this type are to people’s lives. As RESQ/CO has grown, we have and will continue to make an effort to give back and bring awareness to the communities, people and organizations who strive endlessly to help both people and animals alike. We believe that kindness goes a long way and it is our responsibility to lead by example.
