Hendrick Boards Skateboarding With a Mission to Save Animals
The Hendrick Boards story began in 2011, when David Hendrickson, volunteering at a local animal shelter, saw a 5 pound chi-mix carried into the shelter. The puppy had been poisoned via his mother’s milk after she had ingested household chemicals. William, as the pup would later be called, was not expected to live past a few months. Hearing this, David started the adoption process that same day and eventually nursed William back to health.
Inseparable, David and William are often found skateboarding along the beaches of Orange County.

Combining his love of art and skateboarding with his passion for animals, David founded Hendrick Boards and created collections of skateboards and apparel to give back to animal shelters and pet adoption programs across the nation – helping animals, like William, find loving homes.
The Hendrick Boards’ vision is:
“to see a world where every animal has a loving, caring and respectful environment.”
The Hendrick Boards’ mission is:
“to create innovative ways to connect consumers with local animal causes, while building awareness, increasing funding and enhancing engagement.”
Today, with every purchase one makes with Hendrick Boards, 20% to 40% of the purchase price goes to animal shelters and rescues throughout the nation. For every $10 raised, together they we can feed a large shelter animal for an entire month. For every $50, they can take a stray animal off the streets and into a loving home.
