When you purchase items from the iHeartDogs store, part of that profit goes to Greater Good Charities, an organization that helps a variety of dogs in need. Greater Good Charities’ GOODS Program donates healthy meals and other essential supplies to shelters and rescues. Lola is one of the many dogs who now have a better life because of those donations.

Lola is a Husky/Shepherd mix that was found with her brother right before Christmas of 2022. The two of them were only tiny puppies at the time, and they were huddled together during an extreme cold spell. A kind lady picked the puppies up and brought them to her home while she searched for their owners.

After two days in the woman’s care, the puppies seemed to be fighting for their lives. No one had come forward to claim them, so the woman reached out to Route 66 Pet Rescue of Tulsa, OK. The puppies had the canine flu and were extremely ill, but the rescue quickly stepped in to help in any way possible.

Lola and her brother spent several weeks at the rescue as they recovered. Lola’s brother got adopted shortly after, leaving poor Lola all alone. However, the rescue refused to let the fragile puppy feel sad, so they spoiled her as much as they could.

Lola Gets Pampered

Without her brother around, Lola was feeling a little down. But then, she discovered all the luxuries of being a dog, including toys, walks, and delicious food. Soon, she was having the time of her life at the rescue because of all the amazing supplies that were donated.

“This girl loves to play and with the generosity of the GOODS Program, we were able to let her play with several toys and she had a blast. Then, styling in her new collar and leash, one of our junior volunteers took her for a walk. I do believe Lola strutted past the other dogs showing off her new accessories,” Route 66 Pet Rescue wrote. “She had a blast deciding which bowl would become her new food bowl and she of course picked the biggest one. We appreciate amazing donations like this and the huge smile it puts on their face.”
