What do coffee and rescuing dogs have in common? Surprisingly, much more than you might think.
In fact, at Grounds & Hounds, we believe coffee and dogs go hand in hand, which is why we created this article — to cover all of the beautiful similarities between the two. So, if you can’t get enough of your furry little friend and you never miss a day without your morning cup, then read on.
1. Both Make You Feel Great
A morning pick-me-up of freshly brewed coffee and saving a life are one and the same. Don’t believe us? Not only do they both make you feel amazing, but drinking coffee and rescuing dogs both release dopamine in your brain in the same way. This feel-good chemical plays an important role in the brain’s reward system, which is all the more reason to drink coffee and spend time with your fur baby!
2. Both Have A Positive Impact on the World
Did you know that drinking coffee can help do good in the world, just like volunteering with rescue dogs does? And no, we don’t just mean because coffee puts you in a great mood and gets you ready to take on the day. What we’re referring to is the fact that 20 percent of all Grounds & Hounds coffee is donated to animal rescue, which helps rescue dogs find a forever home. So, when you buy coffee that supports dogs, you’re creating a positive impact on the world.
3. They Both Wake You Up
Any dog mom or dad knows that a rescue pup will wake you up in the same way that your morning cup of coffee does. Whether it be sloppy puppy kisses or caffeine, they both help you start the day off right.
4. Incredible Health Benefits
Not only does coffee make you feel smarter, it actually comes with plenty of evidence-based health benefits. Caffeine contains essential nutrients, boosts fat burning, protects your liver, as well as reduces the risk for Parkinson’s and type 2 diabetes. When it comes to the health benefits of dogs — well, we certainly don’t need statistics for that one, but they reduce depression and anxiety, reduce stress, boost exercise, and even improve cardiovascular health. If that’s not a good enough reason to adopt a rescue dog then we don’t know what is!
5. They’re Both Man’s Best Friend
Nobody will love you as much or be as loyal as your rescue dog. Well, besides a cup of coffee, that is. You know you can count on coffee to be there to give you a boost anytime you’re feeling down. Your little brown friend had your back during those long, sleepless college days that never seemed to end. And your morning brew is practically as good as therapy. The truth is, there is no replacement for man’s best friend, but coffee sure comes close.
There’s Nothing Better Than Coffee That Supports Dogs
Who wouldn’t want to slow down and start their day with their pup and favorite beverage? There’s no better feeling, especially when you’re enjoying a cup of coffee that supports dogs. Name a better duo — we dare you. To see for yourself, order your Grounds & Hounds coffee today!
