When you purchase products from the iHeartDogs store, a portion of those proceeds are donated to Greater Good Charities. Through Greater Good’s Rescue Bank program, shelter dogs can get healthy meals so the rescues can save their funds for medical costs and other care requirements. Donna is just one of the many dogs that Greater Good Charities has had an impact on!
Bexata Animal Sanctuary, Inc., a Greyhound rescue in San Antonio, cared for Donna the Greyhound. She initially came from a Greyhound training farm. Poor Donna had a lot of health problems, including skin problems and intestinal issues. The shelter didn’t have the funds to give her a diet to help with those conditions, so Rescue Bank stepped in to save the day.
Donna’s Second Chance
Rescue Bank supplied Donna a special food for her health concerns, which also helped keep her coat and teeth healthy. Not only did they supply food to the dogs, but the rescue also received chew treats, comforters, and dog beds. Thus, the donations not only helped Donna and the other dogs survive, but they also thrived!
“On my website for my rescue there’s an adopted greyhounds page, and I’d say that most of them were able to thrive here based upon the goods received through Rescue Bank. That doesn’t just mean survive but thrive,” Bexata Animal Sanctuary, Inc. wrote. “2020 was not a great year for greyhound adoptions due to COVID-19, so we were extremely fortunate to be recipients of the Rescue Bank donations.”
With Donna’s food taken care of, the rescue was able to focus on her spaying, rehabbing, and socializing. Now, a couple gave her a loving home, and she’s living her best life. The animal sanctuary misses her and will welcome her back if ever needed, but they’re so grateful that she has found a forever family. And Donna seems so happy to be with them!
Every time you purchase something from the iHeartDogs store, Greater Good’s Rescue Bank provides meals for dogs like Donna. Every item bought could make a difference for a dog without a home. So, thank you to all the incredible heroes who have purchased products to help dogs in need!
