Changing Lives One Story At A Time®

Chicken Soup for the Soul is a socially conscious company dedicated to improving the world around us. We give back a portion of all our revenues to causes ranging from animal adoption in the United States to fighting poverty in less developed parts of the world. All of our efforts support our mission to share happiness, inspiration and wellness through everything we do.

Pet Adoption Programs

We also donate Chicken Soup for the Soul pet food to rescue shelters and to new pet owners to encourage adoptions. Learn more.
