In this world of rising costs, covering the bills is getting harder and harder for many families. And sadly, when the cost of living becomes too great, some families have to give up the dogs and cats they love because they can no longer afford their care. Piper is one dog who found herself in such a predicament, and though saying goodbye was sad, her family surrendered her the right way, giving her to a dedicated rescue rather than turning her loose on the streets.

This is how Piper arrived in the care of Pawsibilities Are Endless in Windsor, Missouri. And while her forever wasn’t destined to be with her first family, the animal lovers of Pawsibilities made sure this sweet pup found the happily ever after she was meant for. But they couldn’t have done it without you.

Saving Them By Shopping

Like everything else, the price of pet food and veterinary care is climbing, and animal rescue groups are often left scrambling to find ways to feed the animals and pay the bills. That’s where you come in, dog lover!

When you buy from iHeartDogs, you’re empowering our partnership with Greater Good Charities because every purchase funds meals and other necessities for dogs in need. The GOODS Program, a pet food distribution initiative in the Greater Good Charities family, has been keeping hungry bellies full for over a decade. And to date, the GOODS program has delivered over 578 million meals to shelters and rescues across the country. That’s more than 6,000 truckloads delivered to hungry animals!

These much-needed donations help shelters like Pawsibilities Are Endless feed dogs like Piper. And in turn, these tireless rescue workers and volunteers can concentrate on healing medical issues so the animals in their care can just focus on getting ready for their forever homes.

“Pawsibilities appreciates the food and additional supplies donated to the GOODS Program so we can concentrate more on medical needs of the rescue,” explained Pawsibilities Are Endless.

And thanks to you, Piper the pup is one of those success stories, with Pawsibilities sharing, “She was adopted and was an immediate fit in her new family.”
