Feeding Shelter Dogs Program

UPDATE: 434,973 Meals Provided for Shelter Dogs in April!

iHeartDogs.com is excited to announce that your purchases now help provide food to shelters across the United States! With each purchase of a product on our website, you’ll be providing a specific number of daily meals to shelter dogs through our partnership with Rescue Bank®.

Rescue Bank® supports freight-paid deliveries to smaller, less visible non-profits that have limited access to resources. They operate on the national food bank model, accepting food donations from many manufacturers, distributors or retailers. Rescue Bank® then schedules and pays for the freight to deliver the donation to a regional distribution center where it is picked up by pre-qualified non-profit groups.

For each product you purchase in the iHeartDogs.com store, your purchase will fund the delivery of food for shelter dogs! The following table shows how each product makes an impact:

Product Purchased # of Shelter Dogs Fed
Shirts 7
Hoodies 15
Mugs 5
Pillows 5
Posters 7
Totes 7
Jewelry 10

Frequently Asked Questoons

YES! We are going to still make sure the dogs get their meals even if you return the item. That’s our pledge to them and we take on that cost personally.
