The Jamie (Grey/Black)

The Jamie (Grey/Black)

The Jamie | Grey/Black This is our very first mission hat, so we wanted to put the full story of how this “Mission Hat” idea came to light and what cause this hat supports. Back in 2014, I had a friend named Jamie Ailey. He was the most honorable person I have ever met, served in the military, spent time serving our country over seas and was also a firefighter. Well on August 18, 2014 his life was cut short, he passed away suddenly after an accident. He was such a giving person, and so was his wife Monica. They took time out of their normal schedules to also help animals in need and rescue these animals from horrible circumstances. They volunteered their time to help rescue these animals, foster them, and make sure that they found a good loving home. I always strived to be like Jamie and help others as he would, but it wasn’t until my wife and I decided to start this hat company that we came up with the idea to help others in need by introducing our “Mission Hats.” Jamie taught me a lot of things in the short time that I knew him, and a couple of those things was, laugh and smile every chance you got, and to always be humble and lend a hand to whoever needed it.               With that said, our first mission hat is dedicated to Jamie Ailey. The non-profit organization that we are supporting with this hat is his wife’s. The organization is called Animal Investigation & Response. They do really great things for animals in need. Here is an excerpt from their website: “Animal Investigation and Response is a 501(c)(3) animal protection organization that assists law enforcement, animal control agencies and communities with animal abuse related issues such as puppy mills and animal hoarding as well as, disaster relief. Based in Texas, Animal Investigation and Response was formed by two certified animal cruelty investigators who saw a need to help connect agencies with strategies and resources to investigate as well as provide aid for situations that exceed the scope of a community’s reach.” They are just a great non-profit organization that we at Panther City Hat Company truly believe in being animal lovers ourselves. You can find more information on their website at:               So, the design is simple yet, not. It includes a pit-bull on the hat, as Jamie’s “buddy” was a pit-bull named Bailey. We made the pit-bull red to honor his time as a firefighter and the lines next to the words “Hat Co.” are to represent his military service. All of the profits from these hats are donated to Animal Investigations & Response. Please help us give back to this community that we love and care for.
