Story & Mission
Princess Theodora and her foundation invite you to ‘Save a Soul’. Will You Lend a Paw?
Princess Theodora von Auersperg had not given much thought to the plight of our furrier friends, until upon a chance visit at a local animal agency a woman grasped her arm and pleaded, “Please, you must save a soul today.” At that very moment a pair of curious green eyes wrapped in a coat of soft black fur and a gentle soul pierced the heart of a princess.
Prince was the first of six feline friends that now enjoy the warmth and compassion of Theodora and her husband Michel. The mission of The Princess Theodora Foundation - 'Save a Soul' - is to offer resource for the care and feeding of animals, by offering ten percent of Princess Theodora's net proceeds from her product sales and all net proceeds from the foundation's fund raising events and promotions toward charities that support the humane treatment of animals and animal rescue operations.
“We all are put here for a higher purpose, and ours is to help provide care for creatures that cannot care for themselves.” -- Princess Theodora von Auersperg
The motivation behind our cause is purely a loving one and comes straight from our heart. All we care about is to raise more awareness about the importance of humane treatment, respect, care and love toward all animals and the many blessings that come with inviting and making them part of our lives. Animal rescue, prevention of animal abuse and animal neglect are our top priorities. We do not pursue at all any specific agenda to convert mankind to a vegetarian or vegan diet, neither do we condemn people wearing furs or leather goods. Nobody is perfect. All it matters is that you have your heart in the right place.
Meet Some of Our Friends
One agency that has particularly caught the attention of Princess Theodora is “Hope for Life Rescue” in Virginia Beach, Virginia. For more than 7 years, this “urban sanctuary” for abandoned, abused, neglected and left-behind-street animals, has offered a safe, compassionate, and loving place for animals desperately in need of a home and people who will love them. With no set adoption fee, this non-profit organization operates on donations, used to insure all their animals come with complete medical package which includes all tests, shots, and spay/neuter.

Please Join Us
Hearts just naturally open up to whole new dimensions of love and joy when animals are brought into the home. Their unconditional love brings us closer to nature and what really matters in life. These little angels – healers here on earth – are here to mend the human heart with their love and companionship.
This compassion is not necessarily universal, and is why we’re trying to help those that help these creatures get fed, find shelter, and find the love they richly deserve.
They need our help, and we hope that you will join us in our efforts.
