Our Story

Perks for Paws Collective blends the joy of a good cup of coffee or tea, with the light of a great smelling candle with the satisfaction of making a positive change in the lives of foster animals. Perks for Paws Collective was created and founded by Nicole and her family. Nicole has been a foster mom to countless dogs, cats and other small animals over the past 10 years. Nicole envisioned a way to connect coffee, tea and candle enthusiasts and animal lovers alike. She is passionate about bringing people together by sharing the stories of real fosters and offering great products.

Our local, expert roaster works diligently to create a curated selection of high-quality coffee blends, carefully sourced from sustainable forms. But our commitment goes beyond just great coffee, tea and candles. A portion of all proceeds from every purchase goes directly towards supporting foster animals through various partnerships with Illinois-based rescue organizations.

We invite you to join us in fostering hope, one cup or candle at a time!
