As sick and tiny puppies, Bill and Ted didn’t have a very excellent start to life. Born to a family struggling to make ends meet, they could barely afford to feed the furry ones they already had. They would have to let the puppies go.

Before their adventure of life could truly begin, Bill and Ted found themselves destined for a high-kill shelter. But that’s when Friends with Four Paws in Oklahoma stepped in and saved these sweet pups from a sad ending. And you were a huge part in saving Bill and Ted from that fate simply because you shop with iHeartDogs.

Saving Them All, Big and Small

When you buy from iHeartDogs, you’re empowering our partnership with Greater Good Charities because every purchase funds meals and other necessities for dogs in need. The GOODS Program, a pet food distribution initiative in the Greater Good Charities family, has been keeping hungry bellies full for over a decade. And to date, the GOODS program has delivered over 578 million meals to shelters and rescues across the country. That’s more than 6,000 truckloads delivered to hungry animals!

These much-needed donations help shelters like Friends with Four Paws care for puppies like Bill and Ted, who weren’t well when they came into rescue care. The little sweethearts were battling mites, missing fur, and in desperate need of fattening up. Those donations from the GOODS program were just the ticket.

“The GOODS Program helps provide all the puppy food we need to make sure these pups were able to gain the weight they needed. And the good quality food also contributed towards healthy guts and skin/coat,” shared Friends with Four Paws.

Four Paws also received flea and tick prevention from the GOODS Program, and this necessity for dogs helped Bill and Ted shed the mites that were causing them hair loss and irritation. All the food, care, and love these puppies received in foster care have made them shine!

“Their ailments have been healed, they have picked up a healthy amount of weight and they now know what it feels like not to want for anything.”
