Even Chance Pit Bull Rescue in St. Louis is just one of the many shelters that benefit from food donations through iHeartDogs and Rescue Bank. Good nutrition is important, especially for shelter dogs like Orion:
“We don’t know Orion’s backstory, except that someone found his as a stray, and that he desperately needed our help. The amazing staff at St. Louis County Animal Care & Control introduced us to this sweet boy. As soon as we met him, we knew we needed to help.
“He was completely blind and was in quite a bit of pain. He was scared, confused, and unfortunately, being in a loud shelter intensified his anxieties. He had hair loss and skin infections.
“We are committed to Orion. We immediately got him into a comfortable and quiet home so that he can rest and begin to heal. We put him on the food, Nutro Clean Venison. Thanks to Rescue Bank’s generous supply of such a quality high-end food, Orion’s skin infections, and upset stomach cleared up right away!
“Getting his general health back so quickly allowed him to be in good shape for us to focus on his eye issues and begin to treat them. Though we are unsure of his eyesight prognosis at this time, we know he is healthy and happy! We are so lucky to have access to such quality foods that allow our dogs to be their best!
“Because of Rescue Bank’s food supply, we can focus our small budget on healthcare and training for our dogs. This is imperative for a small rescue like our own to survive.” – Even Chance Pit Bull Rescue
