I love animal rescue groups. Unfortunately, they are chronically overbooked, understaffed, and seriously underfinanced. And so, many of them come to Through a Dog’s Ear for donations of music for their facilities, foster homes, and to be sent home with adopted dogs. The clinically tested music helps increase adoption rates and provides an ease of adjustment into their forever homes.
My desire to help improve the lives of dogs worldwide takes precedence over almost everything else in my life, except for taking care of my own dogs. My passion can be contagious, and sometimes, quite honestly, it’s completely out of balance. The proof of watching how sound therapy calms dogs, and particularly helps improve adoption rates in shelters and rescue organizations worldwide, keeps my passion alive. In the video above, watch the dogs at the Santa Fe Animal Shelter and Humane Society relax while listening to Through a Dog’s Ear.
While Through a Dog’s Ear has donated thousands of CDs to shelters and rescues, we are having a difficult time keeping up with the demands. We have a matching campaign running until August 23. For every Through a Dog’s Ear CD purchased on our website, we’ll donate a CD to a rescue org on our waiting list that will be sent home with a new adopter.
It never ceases to amaze me how passionate Care2 members are about helping animals in need. Do you do volunteer work to help homeless animals? Or maybe it’s become your profession? Thanks for sharing your story in a comment below.
