A BIGGER IMPACT
in a 2019 Study, Ohio humane societies euthanized over 60 percent of the dogs entering their facilities. almost 6 percent more than the average national figure. Less than 20 percent sterilize prior to adoption, and less than 5 percent of county animal control agencies implant adopted dogs with microchips. We wanted to be a part of the change for the 60+ percent, and be a voice for animals in need all over. We wanted to help decrease these statistics by providing additional support to local humane societies through our rescue, fostering, and adoption program.
When you adopt a Pawsitive Hearts rescue dog, the cost of spay/neuter, vaccinations, and microchipping is included in the adoption price, which can save you some of the stress and up front costs of adding a new member to your family. And also -- Bragging rights of course!
Fostering dogs is, simply put, saving lives. When you become a doggie foster parent, you volunteer to keep a homeless dog in your home temporarily until they go to a forever home. Pawsitive Hearts is entirely run on foster homes, and we couldn't save lives of dogs in need without our amazing fosters! We cover all of the supply and veterinary costs.
With this initiative, our goal is to promote great opportunities for those in need. With access to the right resources, people can become empowered by their own abilities and gain the confidence to fulfill their potential. Learn more about our work by getting in touch with our team today.
What our fosters say about us:
"Pawsitive Hearts is a truly amazing organization. They care so much about their dogs, and would genuinely do everything in their power to ensure that they get to live the lives they deserve! I have fostered with them for about a month, and everyone involved is so helpful and kind. Not to mention, I get to hang out with the best little dog I've ever known!"
