February 2, 2021 (Katy, Texas) – Igloo and the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals® (ASPCA®), the first animal welfare organization in North America, which serves as the nation’s leading voice for animals, have partnered to launch the ASPCA Playmate Collection to raise funds for the ASPCA. Igloo is proud to support the ASPCA and its mission to save lives. The new, limited-edition ASPCA Dogs Playmate Pal and ASPCA Cats Playmate Pal, featuring the rescue pets of Igloo employees, are now available at

“We are thrilled to partner with the remarkable ASPCA organization. Igloo is extremely passionate about supporting the welfare of animals, so it is an honor to support the fight against animal cruelty,” said Brian Garofalow, Chief Marketing Officer at Igloo. “Many of our employees have rescued animals of their own and turning some of them into the stars of the ASPCA Playmate Collection made this partnership even more special.”

The ASPCA was founded on the belief that animals are entitled to kind and respectful treatment at the hands of humans and must be protected under the law. The ASPCA has programs that extend their anti-cruelty mission across the country and are recognized as a national animal welfare organization.

Each 7-quart Playmate (fitting up to nine 12-ounce cans) features Igloo employees’ very own rescued pets on the cooler’s tent top. The ASPCA Dogs Playmate Pal is inspired by the love and loyalty from our canine best friends and will be by your side whenever you need it, while the ASPCA Cats Playmate Pal showcases the mysterious personality and sassiness our feline friends are known for. These pet-inspired coolers will help keep drinks, snacks and treats perfectly chilled for you and your animal friends.

Igloo’s entire ASPCA Playmate Collection can be purchased at, for $39.99 each, while supplies last.

About Igloo: Born from a modest metalworking shop back in 1947, Igloo has been instrumental in redefining how we live, work and play. What began with bringing clean water to the worksite quickly moved into super-functional, best-in-class ice chests. Igloo products made the family outdoor recreation movement of the 20th century possible. Suddenly, taking your kids camping on the weekend became easy and cross-country road trips became a summer vacation staple.

As we approach our next century, Igloo is 1,200 employees strong. We are proud to call—a 1.8-million-square-foot, three-building facility in—Katy, Texas home. With more than 500 products sold at thousands of retailers around the globe, we can confidently call ourselves the number one cooler manufacturer in the world.

And through it all we haven’t lost sight of our original goal—to create products that enable the pursuit of happiness (however you define it). That’s why we’re still working hard every day to innovate, create and make it easier for you to get out, work hard and play even harder.
