I Heart Dogs: Buy a Product and Feed Shelter Dogs

Do you like fashion? Do you like dogs? If you answered yes to both of those questions, or even one of them, then you’re going to love the fashion brand “I Heart Dogs”!

The I Heart Dogs fashion brand follows 3 simple words that they run their business by: “Every Dog Matters”. This brand sells everything from cute shirts and jewelry to dog toys and treats. They have a variety of items such as long sleeved shirts, short sleeved shirts, hoodies, hats, gloves, scarfs, rings, necklaces, bracelets, and more! Not only are the shirts super cute and comfortable, but some of them spread awareness about saving and adopting dogs from shelters. If you aren’t into wearing a statement such as this, I Heart Dogs also has shirts that have classic paw print design on them, or a simple outline of a dog. You can even get them personalized!

Do you want to know the best part? With every product that you purchase in the store your purchase funds the delivery of food for shelter dogs! Even if you return an item, the dogs are still going to get their meals.

I looked on the website and found the top selling products that give the most meals to dogs. These are simply an average of how many meals the products will provide for dogs. There are certain products that provide more meals. The great thing is, that under each product, by the price, is how many shelter dogs you will be feeding or other things, such as miles of transport from high risk shelters to safety.

1) Shirts feed 7 shelter dogs

2) Hoodies feed 15 shelter dogs

3) Mugs feed 5 shelter dogs

4) Pillows feed 5 shelter dogs

5) Posters feed 7 shelter dogs

6) Totes feed 7 shelter dogs

7) Jewelry feeds 10 shelter dogs

So, what are you waiting for? If you love dogs, or even if you don’t but want to play an active part in you community, then go to the website and start your shopping! In 2016, I Heart Dogs donated over 6 million meals to shelters. You can add to the number for this year after all dogs are a man’s best friend - who am I kidding, they are a woman’s best friend too! The dog you see in the pictures is my dog Cutch! He is 3 and is a teddy bear puppy which is a mix between a Bichon-frise and a Shih-tzu.
