Change Lives with Rescue Roast & Marley's Mutts!

June 01, 2021 2 min read

 

Some of you may remember that back in 2019, we teamed up with Marley’s Mutts to help out their Pawsitive Change Program. One of earliest Rescue Roast partners, that program was an amazing success, raising almost $10,000. Well, we’re back at it again: Marley’s Mutts is our Rescue Roast partner through July 15th, where our goal is to help them expand the capabilities of the Pawsitive Change Program.

Marley's Mutts' Pawsitive Change is an initiative that pairs rescue pups with non-violent inmates to undergo a supervised 14 week training program. At the end of the program, the rehabilitated pups are evaluated, given a "good canine citizen" certification and made available for adoption.

Pawsitive Change isn’t just amazing for the dogs that need a home. It is a really transformative program for the inmates who work with these pups.  That's part of what excites us so much about working with Marley's Mutts. The funds from Rescue Roast will make an impact on not just rescue pups, but also people.

And our impact this time will be about expanding the capabilities of Pawsitive Change. Marley's Mutts want to take the best of the Pawsitive Change dog graduates and train them to be Emotional Support Animals.  They will be collaborating with another nonprofit whose focus is with military veterans.   Dogs coming out of prison that are assessed as eligible as Emotional Support Animals will be adopted to a veteran in need, free of charge.

The funds from Rescue Roast will help cover the housing and adoption costs of these dogs. Funds will also be used to pay for certification and trainers for the Emotional Support program.

Through July 15th, 100% of the profits from Rescue Roast will go to Marley’s Mutts, helping them take the Pawsitive Change Program to the next level. Please pick up a bag so we can help this incredible group rehabilitate pups and people.
