Since its inception, 5 By Design has evolved into a mechanism for supporting animal welfare activities around the world.

Originally developed to provide financial support specifically to animal rescue groups in Qatar, we now provides support to a number of different organizations not only in Qatar, but also in the U.S.A. and Canada.

5 By Design’s overarching goal is to save and improve the lives of abandoned animals. Our strategy is to partner with well run, committed animal rescue organizations, with 5 By Design providing financial support while the rescue organization provides the hands-on care for the animals.

About Us

A few years ago we started volunteering at a shelter. We loved being with the animals and other volunteers, but it also saddened us when we were introduced to the rescue world and faced the reality that there is never enough room, never enough fosters and never enough money.

After having lived in Europe, Asia and the Middle East we realized that the problem is always the same. We felt the need to do something and 5 By Design was born, a  tee-shirt design company donating net profits to animal rescue, for animal lovers who want to wear something that will look good, feel good and do good.
