How do you entertain a dog who had surgery and needs to rest? With lots of yummy chew snacks that keep them still but also entertained! Rescue dogs like Zipper wouldn’t have these stimulating necessities to aid in their healing without your help funding the chewy fun!

When you shop with iHeartDogs, every single purchase provides donations for canines in need. Whether you purchase a cute dog shirt for yourself or supplements for your dog, that cart full of goodies gives compassion. Through our partnership with Greater Good Charities, we ensure shelter dogs receive food and other necessities while waiting for their forever home. To date, the GOODS Program has delivered over 578 million meals to shelters and rescues nationwide. That’s more than 6,000 truckloads delivered to hungry animals. Talk about a ton of kibble, wet food, and chew snacks! And Zipper sure is happy about those deliveries.

Zipping Her Way To Happiness With Good Chews

Zipper is currently recuperating from leg surgery at Friends of Detroit Animal Care and Control. And the dedicated dog lovers who work and volunteer there reported this pup cutie gets bored not being able to go on long walks while she’s still on exercise restriction. But when they give her something to chew on, they can see her doggy spirits brighten.

“Zipper is so much happier enjoying long lasting chews like Oinkies from Hartz to keep her busy while she heals,” shared Friends of Detroit.

And it’s not just Zipper who loves to see the donations rolling in. All the animals in care with the Friends of Detroit know the joy of a full belly thanks to the teamwork of so many who care about those with paws.

”Our dogs and cats at Detroit Animal Care and Control love the treats and food we get from the GOODS program to supplement what the city shelter provides. We don’t know what we’d do without these donations!”

But the donation magic couldn’t happen without you, dog lover. So, get to shopping; we’ve got more dogs to save!
