Our mission at Petguide has always been to focus on all things pet-related; we want to make sure you’re in the know about everything that makes your pet’s (and your) life better. We partner with organizations who have that same mission, and we’re thrilled to announce one of our newest partners: iHeartDogs!

Why have we partnered with iHeartDogs? Obviously, because they love dogs and so do we! But, we also love their focus not on just all things purposed just for your dog, but for dogs in general, especially those who are in the most need of help.

iHeartDogs’s commitment to impactful giving for the welfare of dogs is what we love to see in pet organizations. Every iHeartDogs product purchased provides a specific donation benefiting one of several different dog-focused give-back programs vital to the welfare of dogs. For instance, their Pets & Vets program gives back to pair companion dogs with military veterans who suffer from emotional and physical injuries sustained during service. They feed shelter dogs through their Feeding Shelter Dogs program and they keep shelter dogs warm through Give Warmth.

They help give dogs on high-kill shelter lists a second chance through their Second Chance, and allow shelter dogs a better opportunity of being adopted by giving toys and letting prospective parents see them play with their Project Play program. There are so many different ways that iHeartDogs gives to dogs (and their humans) in need, and we can’t ever speak highly enough of that commitment.

We also love that iHeartDogs gets involved in communities. Like us, they know that healthy and productive animal welfare efforts happen when communities feel like they’re part of a bigger picture and iHeartDogs goes above and beyond in the various community opportunities they engage in across the United States. Whether it’s updating shelters for the hundreds of dogs who will enter the gates or focusing on individual dogs who’ve been traumatized but are given a second chance in life, iHeartDogs puts skin in the game, and actions behind words. How can you not want to be part of that?

But mostly? We love that iHeartDogs was inspired by a rescued Siberian Husky named Splash, after his human Justin Palmer realized that his Facebook page “I Love Dogs” spoke to the hordes of us who also loved dogs. He and his co-founder, Army veteran Marshall Morris put their combined love and passion for supporting shelter dogs and veterans into a fantastic line of unique products that are designed to give back and make your dog’s life better. They advocate adoption before shopping, giving quality products that benefit dogs and believe that every dog matters in this world.

Every dog. They say they ‘fight like hell’ to battle the health crisis facing dogs–obesity, disease, dental health and homelessness, and we love their passion for doing so.

And we love how each of us can be part of their efforts in very simple, but impactful ways.

Check them out and feel good knowing you’re helping dogs and veterans in the process!
