How Treats Help The treats that we give to shelters do more than just provide a happy and healthy snack for dogs. They also provide a way to increase adoption rates. Animal shelter staff and volunteers use our treats to reward dogs during obedience training to help get them ready for new homes. Dogs that are leash trained and obedient are adopted at a much faster rate. Another key factor for adoption is the interaction between the dog and person looking to adopt during the meet and greet. Dogs that are loving and energetic are usually adopted quickly, however some dogs are more reserved and shy especially around new people. Being able to show the dog that your intentions are good by giving them a treat can be an ice breaker and creates a welcoming atmosphere between a person and dog.
Who we give back to We want to help out as many shelters and rescue organizations as possible. If you work or volunteer at a shelter/rescue organization or just have a shelter in your local area that you would like us to add to our list of recipients send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org We have also made it really easy for our customers to recommend a shelter of their choice when they sign up or gift a treat box(s).
