In support of National Pet Day, Funko has announced a partnership with the ASPCA as part of its philanthropic initiative, Pops! With Purpose. The partnership brings movie pets to Pop! form to raise funds for the ASPCA, the longest-standing animal welfare organization in North America. 

Fans can contribute to the charitable cause by taking home Pops! With Purpose figures of movie pets like Einstein from Universal Pictures and Amblin Entertainment’s “Back to the Future” and Toto from “The Wizard of Oz.” 

Beginning with the ASPCA, Pops! With Purpose will now live exclusively on Funko’s direct-to-consumer channels and Funko will donate $10 for each Pop! sold. 

“The ASPCA does such important work in their fight to prevent cruelty to animals, which is a cause near and dear to the hearts of many of our employees,” says Andrew Perlmutter, chief executive officer, Funko. “When fans purchase their favorite Pops! With Purpose pet figures, they’re displaying not only their fandom but their desire to help the ASPCA in their anti-cruelty mission, which we’re honored to be a part of.” 

“We are thankful for Funko’s support of our efforts to protect and care for animals across the country,” says Rebecca Frommer, director, cause partnerships and events, ASPCA. “For every Pops! With Purpose ASPCA figurine purchased, the ASPCA will receive a donation to support our commitment to helping vulnerable animals in need.” 

The Pops! With Purpose ASPCA figurines will be available for pre-order on October 4.  

Each Pop! sold from the collection will feature a designated sticker and box art.
