THE RESCUE TINS STORY
Rescue Tins is a small business with a big dream- to help support those who aid and assist companion animals in need of rescue, shelter, medical care, and rehoming. So we donate a portion of all of our proceeds to animal shelters and rescues across America.
Our company was originally founded in 2018 as a candle shop by Amy, a biologist and writer turned entrepreneur. Her great loves in life are her family, all creatures great and small, music, exploring nature, collecting cookbooks and bird feeders, and cooking- which she loves because it is chemistry you can eat!
Wayne is Amy’s husband and co-founder, whose endless encouragement and superlative problem solving skills round out their team in great form. He shares Amy’s love of nature and all critters. He lists his loves as roaming the great outdoors, canoeing and hiking, metal detection, fishing, and serving as taste-tester extraordinaire for Amy’s edible chemistry experiments!
Amy and Wayne live on a beautiful acre in the Heart of Hoosierland, Indiana with their dogs Lola, Luke and Angus, their cat Jackie Jackson, a bunch of freshwater fish, and a huge menagerie of outside critter-neighbors including squirrels, song birds, hummingbirds and cardinals, frogs and toads, small friendly snakes, four species of woodpeckers, raccoons, broad winged hawks and bald eagles, and the occasional fox. A true bit of paradise!
