The ASPCA reports more than three million dogs enter U.S. shelters every year. Forty-eight percent of those dogs find forever homes through adoption. But for twenty percent of shelter dogs, there is no happy ending, only the sad reality of being euthanized. For some dogs, this is a humane ending to their suffering. For others, it comes down to overpopulation.
But when we all work together, we can reduce the overcrowding in shelters and help adoptable dogs find happy lives instead of lonely ends. Emmie and Blaze are two sweet Labradors who got their chance thanks to kind hearts coming together with the purpose of saving lives. And you are a huge part of this miracle because you shop with iHeartDogs!
Partnership For Good
Shopping with iHeartDogs means feeding hungry dogs because part of every purchase you make donates money to rescues and shelters working hard to care for dogs and puppies in need, all thanks to a partnership between iHeartDogs and Greater Good Charities. This purpose-driven family of charities devotes their efforts to improve not only our lives but the lives of animals too. And one of the best ways to serve animals in need is by filling their food bowls and giving them the comfort of a full belly. And the Rescue Bank, a pet food distribution initiative developed by Greater Good Charities, has been keeping hungry bellies full for over a decade.
To date, the Rescue Bank has delivered over 275 million meals to shelters and rescues across the country. And with your help, we can make that number grow by funding more of these much-needed donations to shelters and rescues.
Two Forever Homes for Two Good Dogs
Because A Lab for Life Rescue in Newalla, Oklahoma, receives food donations from the Rescue Bank, they’re able to save adoptable dogs from being euthanized and then help them find their forever homes. As two dogs rescued from a death sentence, Emmie and her brother Blaze are so thankful for the rescue, the Rescue Bank, and you because now they know the joy of a loving family.
“Emmie’s pawrents said she is an absolute delight and is amazing with her human, big sister,” A Lab for Life shared.
“Emmie likes to explore in the woods behind her house, outdoor dining, and just being a love bug to her family. Emmie also has a cousin she gets to play with.”
And Blaze has found his happiness too! Now, he has a home where he can play with sticks and leaves until his heart’s content.
Couldn’t Happen Without You
But none of this joy would be possible without help, with A Lab for Life explaining, “The Rescue Bank has helped the rescue tremendously. It has allowed us to help save more dogs from the high-kill shelters in Oklahoma and find them loving homes that they deserve.”
To Rescue Bank and you, this dedicated dog rescue says, “Thank you!”
