National Feed a Rescue Pet Week: Feed 3 Million Rescues!

July 24th – 30th is National Feed a Rescue Pet Week
Help us meet our goal to provide 3 million meals to hungry rescue pets around the country! When you #Give10, YOU provide 400 meals to an animal in need.

One of the biggest expenses for shelters and rescue groups is feeding animals in their care. For many rescues, after food costs, they have little or nothing left in their budget for medical treatment, vaccines, or other adoption programs. That’s where GreaterGood’s Rescue Bank program comes in—we ship donated food to rescue groups around the country to make sure their animals are fed, and that they have extra money in their budget to help pets in desperate need—pets like Pluto (featured in the video below).

When Pluto was abandoned at Born Free Pet Shelter in Southern Florida, his back legs were paralyzed. He had to drag the rear half of his body across the ground, and people said he would never walk again. However, Alicia, the shelter director, didn’t want to give up on Pluto. Luckily, the shelter saves about $3,000 monthly thanks to Rescue Bank food donations, and Alicia was able to use those savings on a special treatment for Pluto, giving him his legs back. This miracle would not have been possible without your support.

Rescue pets like Pluto need your help. July is one of the busiest months of the year for many shelters and rescues, and more animals mean more hungry bellies. Help celebrate National Feed a Rescue Pet Week by making a tax-deductible gift. Just $10 ships 400 meals, and 100% of your donation goes to help.
