1/28/14 Videos of Well Fed Shelter Dogs and Cats Helped by RESCUE BANK-The National Pet Food Distribution Program for Animal Rescue Groups and Organizations. You CAN BE Part of the Solution to Find Homeless Cats and Dogs Homes.

This week I have decided to post organizations that help shelter animals by donating food to shelters or to rescues so the rescues can  pull more animals from shelters and give them another chance at a  safe, healthy life with owners who  love and value them. Also I want to post some  rescues and shelters.

 Here is the link to  Rescue Bank with videos of  some of the animals they've helped. If you are  prone  to tears,  these videos might do it. You see the animals  nurtured and cared for and FED and see how they blossom. Isn't that what rescue and shelters need to be about, giving  the animals a safe place to stay while waiting for adoption, helping the dogs and cats be the best they can be ( health and behaviour wise),  doing all they can to find them homes? This does cost money so organizations like Rescue Bank are important to support. Sometimes  the ability of a rescue or shelter  to  provide food for a dog or cat allows  animals who are sick or old or hard to adopt more time to get to safety instead  of euthanization.

"Nutritious pet food is donated when it is nearing the ‘best buy’ date, has minor packaging defects or is being re-branded. Animal rescue groups use the savings from their food budget for more spay/neuter and vet services – increasing adoptions of healthier pets.
Rescue Bank® operates on the national food bank model, accepting food donations from any manufacturer, distributor or retailer. Suppliers such as Pedigree, Nutro, Royal Canin, Purina, DelMonte, Wellness and PupChips notify us that product is available.
Rescue Bank® schedules and pays for the freight to deliver the donation to a regional distribution center where it is picked up by pre-qualified non-profit groups.
With millions of pets in need throughout the country, Rescue Bank® is a reliable partner for converting excess product into goodwill for the donor.
Rescue Bank® is a valued partner for both suppliers and the animal rescue and foster organizations across America."
