When you buy products from the iHeartDogs store, part of that profit is donated to Greater Good Charities so they can help animals in need. Greater Good Charities supports a variety of organizations through its GOODS Program, which donates food and other essential supplies to rescues and shelters. Those crucial donations often save lives!

Route 66 Pet Rescue in Tulsa, Oklahoma, is one of many animal organizations that benefit from the GOODS Program. They’re a small rescue that cares for about 30 animals at a time. Without food donations, they wouldn’t be able to support that many animals in need.

“We rescue dogs off the streets and do everything in our power to make their future brighter,” Route 66 wrote. “We are a no kill rescue and take our dogs back no matter what if it doesn’t work with their new family. Once in our rescue, no matter their journey, when they leave us they will always be in our family.”

Many of the dogs that enter Route 66 Pet Rescue are so malnourished they look like walking skeletons. So, the rescue makes sure their bellies are always full. Some of the dogs have also never felt the loving touch of a human before, so the rescue gives them plenty of affection to help them prepare for their forever homes.

Your Donations Save Lives

Greater Good Charities’ GOODS Program provides healthy dog food to the dogs at the rescue. With plenty of food available to these canines, the rescue can focus on other areas of their care, such as their medical needs. Thus, Route 66 can successfully help every dog regain their strength, health, and energy.

Since Route 66 doesn’t have to worry about food donations, they’re also able to spend more time focusing on the specific needs of each dog. Whenever a pair of bonded dogs arrive at their rescue, they do everything they can to keep them together.

Happy dogs at rescue

“Most of our dogs were starving, in need of vetting and a lot of love. Food donations help us provide them good quality food to regain their strength and health,” Route 66 wrote.

Every time you make a purchase in the iHeartDogs store, you help feed dogs like these formerly malnourished pups at Route 66. These food donations allow the rescue to keep helping dogs in need, saving lives in the process. So, thank you to all the heroes who have bought products to benefit rescue dogs!
