Thanks To You, These Shelter Pets Get Their Own Place To Play
Part of each sale through the iHeartDogs store is donated to Greater Good, which helps support various charities like Rescue Rebuild. Thanks to customers like you, happy endings, like the one below, are made possible.
Adoption rates increase by as much as 25% when animals have dedicated areas to run and play. This allows pets to be themselves as they wait for their forever homes, showing potential adopters their happy, relaxed, and playful sides!
These areas were a huge part of Rescue Rebuild’s latest mission at Special Pals in Houston, Texas, a shelter that takes in hundreds of dogs and cats yearly. They also offer low-cost or free services for community members, and provide free education for new adopters.
When the Rescue Rebuild team completed work at Special Pals, there was a stress-free space away from the loud noises and daily hustle and bustle of shelter life. Spaces like these result in much, much lower stress and anxiety levels among the animals, greatly increasing their chances of a quick adoption.
And of course Rescue Rebuild was determined to do something special for the cats whose previous space was the shelter’s lobby, with cages lining each wall. Now these great kitties spend hours running, jumping, playing, and just being cats in their new Cattie Shack!
Rescue Rebuild feels honored to have helped a shelter as great as Special Pals. Now it’s on to the next build!
