We believe that all animals deserve to be treated with respect and compassion.
Our mission is to spread love and compassion for animals. We donate a percentage of our profits to our favourite animal welfare charities and causes.
The Compassion Collective was originally set-up by Anna Celeste Watson and Stu Jones, the co-founders of Compassionate Dorset – a voluntary animal welfare group in the UK – and we are now run by their ethical design studio Boo&Stu.
We create our own range of animal inspired ethical and eco-friendly t-shirts through our Compassionate Tee-Shop, as well as art prints and charity greetings cards sold through Etsy.
We are also currently creating our own free Compassionate Food Guide collaborating with Compassion Dorset and Compassion in World Farming so watch this space…
What We Do
Our Artists & Designers
Boo&Stu are an ethical design studio based in Dorset and the New Forest set-up by the founders of Compassion Collective, partners Anna Celeste Watson and Stu Jones who met completing a BA in Fine Art Painting at Wimbledon School of Art. Their favourite clients include Humane Society International, Cruelty Free International, Lush Cosmetics and Hounds Off. In 2016 Stu illustrated his first children’s book about badgers called The Ones Who Walk Above which has been highly acclaimed by wildlife experts including Chris Packham, Nigel Marven and Dominic Dyer.
“We had no idea when we set-up Compassionate Dorset back in 2009 that we would have achieved so much, be doing what we are doing now and working with so many amazing organisations. It is a real joy and a privilege to be able to use our designs to help animals. We hope you love our artwork as much as we love creating it!”
TinCat are a design studio based in Bristol, and are part of the Compassion Collective having originally won a Compassionate Dorset t-shirt design competition with ‘Born to Roam’ to raise funds for the charity Compassion in World Farming.
“We love the values of Compassionate Dorset / Compassion Collective so were inspired to create something that would help them raise money.”
Sam is an Artist with a BA (Hons) in Typography and Graphic Communication from Reading University and paints using watercolour and pen on paper from her countryside surrounded studio in a little village near Lyme Regis in Dorset.
“I was so chuffed at the thought that one of my paintings [‘Badgers’ – in aid of Dorset for Badger and Bovine Welfare] might do some good in the world that I’ve done another. And if badgers being vaccinated helps protect all the beautiful cows that surround where I live, it seems a win win situation to me.”
Suzy is an Artist living in rural West Cornwall where a variety of non human animals including livestock, pets and wildlife, punctuate her days and inspire her work which she sees as a “Creative Response to the Natural World”.
“I was delighted to be able to donate my images to the Compassion Collective because they support charities that are very close to my heart and can reach a wider audience than I can. It is important for me to use my work wherever possible to support charities, particularly those which focus on animal welfare and protection.”
Jenny is an Illustrator with a BA in Illustration from Falmouth College of Arts in Cornwall, who is part of the Compassion Collective having donated some of her fab pictures to raise funds for British wildlife.

We recently relocated from our HQ in Dorchester, Dorset to near Barton-on-Sea in the beautiful New Forest on the Hampshire/Dorset border (where we often enjoy seeing highland cows, wild ponies, donkeys and foxes roaming free!).
