Sponsor A Shelter Dog With dogIDs

Note: This post is sponsored by dogIDs.

I have an easy way to make a difference for homeless dogs!

Through the Sponsor.Dog program at dogIDs, you can choose a product to send directly to a specific dog in need.

Pick a dog, pick a product and send it to a homeless dog!

Sponsor Dog with dogIDs

The program is similar to a gift registry.

Under each shelter dog’s profile, there are several items listed for donation based on the needs and personality of that unique dog. You simply select an item and purchase it for the shelter or rescue dog. Once an item is purchased, it will be indicated as so.

A percentage of the proceeds from your purchase will also go to the rescue or shelter hosting the adoptable dog. Once a dog is adopted, a new shelter dog will take his place.

dogIDs is a family-owned business based in Fargo, N.D., that specializes in personalized dog products such as collars, leashes and ID tags.

I thought it would be so nice if we could order all the items on the list for one of the dogs for adoption.

Here is Mr. Zang, a 10-year-old Rottweiler/mastiff mix for adoption with Rocket Dog Rescue in San Francisco. He is one of the participants in the Sponsor.Dog program.

From Rocket Dog rescue:

“Being picked up after wandering the streets as a stray and being taken to an overcrowded shelter at 10 years of age wasn’t looking so good for cool old Mr. Zang. He has been some places in his life and seen some things, but … waiting in that shelter … he started to get a little scared … Luckily, Rocket Dog Rescue just happened to be there to swoop in and rescue him!”

It’s a great way to help a dog in need

The Sponsor.Dog program features adoptable dogs located at shelters around the United States, and you can search by your region here.

The folks at dogIDs believe every dog deserves to be happy, and even if you can’t adopt a dog at the moment, you can still help.

Hi there, we have a couple of really great shelters in the Detroit area, the Detroit Pit Crew Dog Rescue and the Detroit Dog Rescue. Would you consider offering the Sponsor a Shelter Dog with IDS to those rescues as well?
