Meet the Models.


Introducing “Hoodies for Humans & Dogs” campaign, our partnership with A Purposeful Rescue, a 501c3 nonprofit organization that saves overlooked dogs from high-kill shelters – dogs they refer to as “magical unicorns” because they’re older or unconventional-looking. And during the month of December, 15% of proceeds from our hoodie sales will be donated to A Purposeful Rescue.


Meet Alice

This 10-year-old Lab/Chow Chow mix is a mellow senior gal looking for a retirement home. She loves everyone she meets (except for cats).  

Meet Aurora

Aurora is an 8-year-old Cockapoo mix with a gentle soul who is sight impaired but has endless love to give. 

Meet Gilbert

This 7-year-old American Staffordshire Terrier is a big softy who loves other dogs of all sizes. His minor arthritis doesn’t slow him down; he’s an exceptional wiggler and a superior nap partner.

Meet Delta

She’s a small 15-year-old lady with a pep in her step who is quiet in the house and makes for an easy, loving companion.

Meet Cheryl

After an eye operation, this delightful 10-year-old Poodle-Bichon Frise mix is recovering beautifully, and is good with both cats and dogs.

Meet PacMan

Described by his friends as the “life of the party,” this 6-year-old Shih Tzu is healing nicely from some health issues and will make a terrific companion for a family.

Meet Prue

An 8-year-old Australian Cattle dog, Prue is loyal and smart as a whip. After a tough time at the shelter, she’s bounced back in a major way and is ready to live her best life.

Meet Two Teef Keef

She’s coming in at 6 years old at 4 pounds with 2 teeth, but this lovable Miniature Poodle is a heavy hitter in the love department. You haven’t lived till you’ve seen her signature trick: a handstand pee.

Meet Magda

This 12-year-old Cocker Spaniel may have been mistreated by her previous family, but everything changed when she met her fairy dog mothers at A Purposeful Rescue. This little lady deserves a forever home.


American Apparel has always championed dog adoption and it is our goal to spread the word about these amazing animals that so deserve a loving and safe home.
