Americans are facing job losses at unprecedented rates and financial hardship at alarmingly high levels. If ever you were considering an opportunity to make a positive impact for those in dire circumstances – individuals, small businesses, churches, nonprofits, including animal welfare organizations, now is the time.
I'd been wanting a dog for a while, and I'd pretty much decided on a senior dog for several reasons:
1. We have three cats and I thought a younger dog would be too rambunctious for them. 2. We aren't particularly active people, so something a little more mellow would work better 3. I knew they were less likely to get adopted 4. Honestly, I wasn't sure how I would wind up liking the work of a dog, so a two to five year commitment seemed smarter than 15-20.
Throughout the years, there has been a lot of charitable work committed to rescuing and adopting out animals. And with good reason – rescue services will evaluate the potential pet, rehabilitate it if necessary, and provide you with a great companion for life. And let’s face it, there are way too many homeless strays out there that need a good home.
We at BlackMesh love dogs as much as we love hosting nonprofit sites. So when the opportunity came about to help a nonprofit dedicated to bettering the lives of dogs, we couldn’t resist.
Smart Cookie Dog Treats got its start after Ruger, the beloved dog of founders Bri and Scott Bradley, was diagnosed with lymphoma and Bri herself with cancer. The result was a company that makes health-conscious, customizable dog treats. We interview co-founder Bri Bradley.
