A North Dakota brewery is helping local pups find their forever homes by featuring their faces on the front of its beer cans.
Partnering with the rescue organization 4 Luv of Dog Rescue, Fargo Brewing Company hopes that adding the dog’s mugs will help these harder-to-adopt pups get noticed. The dogs featured have a hard time socializing, so they don’t do well at adoption events. Hopefully, the cans will change that.
Jerad Ryan, a volunteer with 4 Luv of Dog, says the partnership between the brewery and the non-profit was his idea.
“Our wonder dogs are dogs that will live their best life in a home by themselves and there’s no other pets,” Ryan said. “They can be a little bit tougher to find homes for, foster homes, that type of thing. We are featuring those dogs in a can and bringing them here, so the public can meet them,” he added.
“The harder-to-adopt dogs sometimes labeled as ‘Oneder dogs’ have always had a special place in my heart,” shelter volunteer Jerad Ryan told the outlet. “My first three-and-a-half years volunteering at the shelter I would spend extra time with the dogs that had been there long-term mostly due to the fact they don’t do well living with any other dogs. Many of our foster homes already have a resident dog or two so it is difficult to find these particular dogs a forever home.”
Fargo Brewing will hold a beer release during which four of the dogs from the cans will stop by the brewery. The brewery also plans to donate any profits from the limited release to the rescue organization.
Please adopt shelter pets. And if you can, please consider adopting a senior pet. Seniors already know so much and their hearts are open to love. with more to give back than you ever imagined! There is nothing I love more than a “senior” dog or cat! They are some of the best pets you can invite into your life.
Anyone who believes that money can not buy you happiness has never paid an adoption fee!
