Every time you shop at the iHeartDogs store, part of that profit goes to Greater Good Charities. Greater Good Charities supports lots of animals in need, especially through their GOODS Program, which donates food and other essential supplies to shelters and rescues. Many dogs, such as Barbie, now have better lives thanks to these life-changing donations.

Barbie was brought to Rescue Pets of Florida as a stray, but her rescuers quickly realized there was more to her story. Based on her injuries, it looked like Barbie had been hit by a car in the past, requiring a long road to recovery. The rescue gave her a comfortable place to rest while she healed.

“She’s very sweet and adores being with people and giving them gentle kisses,” Rescue Pets of Florida wrote. “She’s looking for a family that will love her forever and never leave her again on the streets.”

Barbie is Safe Now

Now that Barbie is safe at the shelter, she has come out of her shell a lot and grown stronger. She happily welcomed the new toy donations, which she plays with regularly and likes to keep to herself whenever possible.

The GOODS Program donates more than just toys; donations include whatever the shelter dogs need most. For many animal rescue organizations, that includes healthy food and treats. With food and other essential supplies out of the way, the rescue can focus its funds on other areas, such as medical care for injured dogs like Barbie.

“This has been incredible for all the rescues in the Tampa Bay area,” wrote Rescue Pets of Florida.

Every time you shop at the iHeartDogs store, you’re helping dogs like Barbie get a second chance at life. Even small purchases can help keep dogs healthy and content. So, thank you to all the heroes who have bought products to help dogs in need.
