5 Rescue Shelters That Are Finding Dogs Love And Furever Homes
We've met a lot of amazing organizations and non-profits over the years, especially ones that do amazing things to help shelter dogs, who are close to euthanasia, find love and forever homes. Some of these organizations are small and community based, while others cover a larger regional or national footprint. No matter their size, what they do to support these dogs is nothing short of inspirational.
Today, HooplaHa would like to shine a spotlight on 5 very special groups that have made a tremendous difference in saving lives, giving love, and finding shelter dogs furever homes.
1) Snuggle Delivery
Enlist the services of Snuggle Delivery! The Humane Society of Broward County in Fort Lauderdale, FL started a program where for a small donation to the organization, they will load up a van filled with adorably adoptable puppies to your office or work place for a few hours of cuddle time!
2) Animal Care Centers of NYC (ACC)
The ACC is one of the largest animal welfare organizations in the country, taking in more than 35,000 animals each year. They help all types of animals (cats, dogs, rabbits, reptiles, birds, and farm animals) with all types of needs (homeless, abandoned, injured or sick). ACC is the only 501(c)(3) nonprofit in NYC with this unique responsibility.
3) Rescue Road Trip
There is an abundance of shelter dogs in the deep south. That's why Greg Mahle founded a transport service called Rescue Road Trip to relieve these unwanted dogs from their death sentence and ship them north to the arms of loving and eager canine owners. The trip starts on Tuesdays in Ohio, goes south of the Mason Dixon Line to retrieve the dogs and then circles back up north for joyful reunions later in the week.
4) Humane Society of Utah
Have you ever found it difficult to connect with a pet in a dog shelter? They are loud places where lots of animals are jumping, barking, and competing for your attention. That's why the Humane Society of Utah decided to give each dog its individual chance to shine in front of the lights of their staff photographer, Guinnever Shuster, to show off its unique personality.
5) Tracy's Dogs
Tracy's Dogs is a not-for-profit National Rescue & Transport Initiative for shelter dogs. The focus of the program is to rescue and rehabilitate dogs with pending euthanasia dates residing in kill shelters with the hope of putting them up for adoption to find forever homes!

Art classes allow young people to express themselves in important ways. Unfortunately, arts education is disappearing from schools in America; since 2008, 80% of school districts have cut funding for art programs. Simultaneously, student creativity scores have dropped. Fortunately, there are people and groups out there fighting to keep arts education present and vibrant in schools across the country.
Tennis is a popular and fun pastime, in that it requires mental focus and athletic ability. But due to the cost of equipment and court time, lots of kids never get the chance to try their hand at the sport. Leaders of the Junior Tennis Champion Center (JTCC) recognized this cost challenge, and decided to do something to change it. In 2009, JTCC launched a Community Outreach initiative, with the goal of introducing underserved kids in Prince George's County, MD, and Washington, DC to tennis. And the program has become an indisputable success.
