Every purchase from the iHeartDogs store provides supports programs like GreaterGood’s RescueBank, providing healthy meals to rescues and shelters across the country. The following is a success story made possible from your support!

Sir Gideon was not always the distinguished, burly pooch he is today. He was found chained to an abandoned porch, weighing in at a death-defying 14 pounds.

Despite his horrifying condition and permanently “grumpy” face, Sir Gideon was a gentleman from the start. His rescuers at All Breed Rescue Angels (ABRA, inc.) fell in love with him instantly.

ABRA, Inc. spent months rebuilding Sir Gideon’s strength and getting him to a healthy weight. They were able to do so with the donated food they received from’s Rescue Bank program.

Today, his former neglect is nothing but a distant memory. Sir Gideon is a much loved and well cared for pet. The family that adopted him adores him, and he is as spoiled as any dog can be.

“We take on many medical cases, and without food donations, our limited resources would have to be spent on food. Thanks to’s Rescue Bank, we can spend more of our donations on medical bills and save more animals.” – All Breed Rescue Angels
