This story really does give me the feels this beautiful Friday afternoon and it just gives me all of the warm fuzzy feelings! I knew I had to share this story when a good friend of mine, Rob, sent it to me! A brewery in North Dakota found a cool way to help sheltered dogs get adopted quicker!
From Greater Good:
Rescue dogs sometimes stay at the pound for far too long. If a local brewery in Fargo, North Dakota has their way, however, that will change. They are now using their beer cans to feature dogs up for adoption to help them find forever homes.
Fargo Brewing Company, in a partnership with a local rescue group,4 Luv of Dog Rescueare making it happen. They are naming those animals ‘One-der’.
“Our One-der dogs are dogs that will live their best life in a home by themselves and there’s no other pets,” Jerad Ryan, volunteer at 4 Luv of Dog, told CNN affiliateKVRR. “So, they can be a little bit tougher to find homes for, foster homes, that type of thing.”
Shelters in the United States are struggling at near capacity levels. As a result, many animal shelters are taking drastic measures. This includes a reduction in adoption fees at two animal shelters in Atlanta, known as theLifeLine Animal Project.
“Just last week, 358 animals entered our Dekalb County Animal Services and Fulton County Animal Services shelters,” the grouppostedon Facebook on October 29. “This week, 123 animals have arrived so far.”
I have to say, THAT is pretty clever! Especially when most states have been shut down because of the COVID-19 pandemic, it's been hard to get pets adopted and I think this was BRILLIANT! If you're in the market to adopt, get out there and adopt your FURRY FRIEND!
