Castelli Cycling and Animal Rescue Project Team Up


Welcome to The Rescue Project, a collective effort to support animal rescue through the powerful and close-knit community of endurance athletes.

No matter where you live, ride, train, or race, you can be a part of The Rescue Project’s mission while supporting your local animal rescue organization of choice.

Supporting The Rescue Project is simple: Purchase high quality custom threads by Castelli and American Apparel from this website. When you make your purchase, you will have the option to indicate the animal rescue of your choice and we will donate the profit from your purchase to that rescue group. Expect to see several fresh designs per year, with the first set coming out in early 2014.

I created The Rescue Project in 2013 but it is made successful with the support of my wide network of dog and cat-loving athlete friends…and their friends. 

I have spent the last several years racing mountain bikes all over the country, while also in graduate school.  During this time, I have remained active in dog rescue (specifically the Southeast German Shorthaired Pointer Rescue Group).  With two senior GSPs of my own, work, and travel, it became hard to foster new dogs but I always felt the need to do more to support rescue efforts.     

One day, the light bulb turned on and The Rescue Project was formed.  This is not a solo mission.  The Rescue Project brings all of us athletes who want to help save more animals together so we can make a real difference.  Purchasing and wearing the best quality clothing and designs AND supporting your local rescue organization of choice?  I think it’s a win-win idea.  I hope you do, too.
