It's the most wonderful time of the year... Christmas in July! This year, we're using the "holiday" as an excuse to make a toy donation to one of our partner rescues, Wags & Walks. Of course, this is all possible through your purchases and continued support of the Grounds & Hounds mission.
Every year around Christmas, Grounds & Hounds donates 10,000 dog toys to rescues and shelters across the country. It's one of our favorite programs, as it offers needed enrichment for pups waiting for their forever homes. Toys can help shelter dogs relieve stress, thereby reducing unwanted behaviors and making them stronger candidates for adoption.
So, with that in mind, we decided to get a head start on the holidays with this surprise pop in to Wags & Walks. And while Christmas in July may be the perfect reason to gift your local shelter with whatever they may need right now, you really don't need the holiday as an excuse. The rescue could always use your help throughout the year, whether through donations or volunteering.
Thank you again for making moments like these possible. And Merry Christmas... in July!
The holiday season is a time for love, family, and comfort. Unfortunately, countless pups must spend the holidays alone in the shelter simply waiting for the perfect family to give them a second chance.
Three Percent. That is the survival rate of a shelter dog in Puerto Rico. It’s a grim fate for a “Sato,” the name commonly used to refer to homeless dogs in Puerto Rico and astonishingly, there are estimated to be as many as 500,000 of these Sato pups.
To help provide comfort and love to pups waiting to be saved, we're providing as many blankets as possible to our shelter partners coast to coast. For every blanket sold this season, we're donating a blanket to a rescue pup waiting on a forever family.
