Jill's Next Door has partnered with Ryan Dempsey, owner of Dog Patch SF and the Ropes for Rescues Program. Ropes for Rescues is a rock climbing rope recycling program that refurbishes old ropes into dog leashes benefitting the community, animal rescues, and the environment.

OUR PROGRAM

"Ropes for Rescues" is a recycling program designed to breathe new life into used rock climbing ropes. They refurbish these retired ropes and create beautiful dog leashes, while limiting landfill contribution, and donating to animal rescues.

REPURPOSE

Dog Patch SF collects these donated ropes, washes them in dog friendly soap, and repurposes them into durable, eco-friendly dog leashes. Every leash is hand made in San Francisco with the lowest impact on the environment. 

DONATE

When climbers donate their rope, they choose their favorite animal rescue where 10% of the profits are given directly to the rescue. If the climber doesn’t have a specific rescue in mind, we select one of rescue partners.

Founder Dog Patch SF & Ropes For Rescues

Ryan Dempsey

Ropes for Rescues all began when owner Ryan Dempsey rescued two pups named Rascal and Oona.

As Ryan got to know his new pups, he began making various dog products specific to their unique quirks. His local community noticed his talents, motivating Ryan to launch Dog Patch SF and Ropes for Rescues. Ryan dedicates his life to creating products benefitting the animal rescue community and the environment.

Ryan has donated leashes to over 350 different animal rescues from San Francisco to Ecuador. For a comprehensive list of rescues they have partnered with, visit their Community and Rescues page and website. Learn more
