Rottweiler Hearts Rescue is thrilled to announce that the Petco Foundation has given us a generous grant to help with veterinary care of our foster care dogs. Thank you Petco Foundation!
Rottweiler Hearts Rescue is pleased to announce that we are the recipient of a generous donation of Thundershirts from the Petfinder Foundation. Thundershirts are an effective way to reduce anxiety in dogs without the use of medication and can be used for multiple reasons (fear, stress, thunderstorms, travel, separation, etc.)
Dogs coming to RHR straight from the shelter can have unknown histories, scars of abuse, medical issues, and phobias that take time to work through, and therefore sometimes have a hard time adapting to foster life in a family setting. This grant will enable us to have another avenue for comforting these dogs during their transitional period (and longer if needed).
Rottweiler Hearts Rescue would like to formally thank the Petfinder Foundation and Thundershirt, and recommends anyone interested in learning more about the product check out their website 'How it Works'.
Rottweiler Hearts Rescue is pleased to announce that we are the recipient of a $500 grant from the Blessings Project Foundation. These funds are in support of our low cost Vaccine and Microchip Clinics. The grant will be used to purchase the rabies vaccines for our upcoming clinics. Rottweiler Hearts Rescue offers our sincerest gratitude to the Blessings Project Foundation. The Blessings Project Foundation award project-specific grants to grassroots initiatives on the basis of their potential to positively impact social, humanitarian, and environmental challenges.
Rottweiler Hearts Rescue is pleased to announce that we are a recipient of a $1500 Build-A-Bear Bearemy's Kennel Pals Grant! A HUGE thank you to Build-A-Bear. This grant will give RHR the ability to provide basic veterinary care, vaccinations, spay/neuters, etc to incoming RHR foster dogs. The grant money can also be used for veterinarian recommended procedures and treatments such as mange, ringworm and heartworm treatment, surgeries, x-rays, etc.
The Build-A-Bear Workshop Bear Hugs Foundation is committed to making life more bearable for children, families and pets, in need of a helping paw. With the sale of each full-sized Bearemy’s Kennel Pals® friend -- a collection of Build‑A‑Bear Workshop® plush dogs -- one dollar is donated to domestic pet programs including local animal shelters, stray pet rescue and rehabilitation organizations, and pet education programs around the country. These funds are available to qualified non-profit organizations in the United States and Canada. Visit www.buildabear.com for more information.
RHR is off to a great start to the new year with the receipt of our second grant of 2013, this one from the Greg Biffle Foundation. We want to send out a huge THANK YOU to the Greg Biffle Foundation for their donation to help RHR continue our efforts. As stated on their website, "The Greg Biffle Foundation was founded in 2005 by Greg and Nicole Biffle to create awareness and serve as advocates to improve the well-being of animals by engaging the power and passion of the motor sports industry.
Since its creation, The Greg Biffle Foundation has awarded grants to over 500 humane societies and animal shelters from coast to coast. Representing the best interests of the animals and using the full potential of each participant's involvement is the purpose for the Greg Biffle Foundation. Our mission is specifically intended to demonstrate our focus. Through partnerships and activities to come, we intend to draw together the best efforts of all animal lovers.
Greg and Nicole have three dogs – Foster and his daughter Gracie, a pair of Boxers who are very familiar to race fans across the country. Foster even graced the front of a Milk Bones box in 2004. The latest addition is Savannah, who was rescued from a Georgia shelter. The Biffle’s have fostered several dogs that have since been placed in loving homes." We are so excited to receive recognition and support from such a prominent figure as well as a fellow dog lover.
