Hearts and Bones Rescue is a foster-based organization that has dogs in both Texas and New York. In those locations, they have a network of foster parents and other volunteers to help the dogs in their care find forever homes.
By keeping all the dogs in home environments instead of at shelters, the dogs will feel more comfortable and be more prepared when their forever family comes for them. Their goal is to give every rescue dog the life they truly deserve.
We first heard about this rescue when we came across some news stories about them. The rescue had gained some popularity because they were naming their rescue dogs after real-life heroes amid the coronavirus. Community members could nominate healthcare workers for the incoming rescue dog names.
If a dog at their rescue is named after a hero, they add a little information about that hero in the dog’s bio. I was so interested by this because it’s such a heartwarming and unique way to recognize the amazing people out there. The COVID-19 pandemic is a difficult time for everyone, so it’s important to honor medical workers in any way possible.
From what I can tell, this rescue is a group of truly incredible humans. They want to make a difference for every dog in need, and they won’t rest until every dog finds their forever home. It’s a difficult task, but as long as we keep caring, we can get it done.
Like all rescues and shelters, this organization needs all the help they can get! Please consider donating to help the dogs in their care. Even small donations can make a huge difference.
Do you know of a shelter or rescue that goes above and beyond to save dogs? Do you have a dog with an incredible rescue story? If you answered yes to either of those questions, please contact me to get a special article featured on my blog. Let’s encourage more dog lovers to adopt!
