Did you know that since 2011, there are one million FEWER animals entering shelters each year and euthanasia rates have decreased by 75% over the past decade?!
This week we’re celebrating Dog Day, which is the perfect excuse to celebrate all of the amazing pups in our lives. But the day has an extra special meaning for us here at Grounds & Hounds, as the celebration also highlights the importance and impact of animal rescue.
Promoting adoption has been a core focus of our mission since we launched and It’s amazing to see how the collective efforts in the rescue world are helping so many amazing pups.
But, we know the fight isn’t over yet… not until the number of dogs in shelters is zero.
Whether it’s by volunteering in your shelter, fostering a pup in need or simply buying our coffee, we hope you’ll join us saving lives 365 days a year!
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.
