GiftBasketsPlus.com Partners with Dog Rescue to Help Raise Donations
According to the Humane Society of the United States, pet overpopulation in the United States is a massive problem, with an estimated 6-8 million dogs and cats in shelter care every year, of which approximately 3-4 million are euthanized. Various organizations have been created to protect the rights and give shelter to these neglected animals, but more help is needed. This is where rescue groups play an important role in the fight to end the pet overpopulation problem. These amazing volunteer groups, driven solely by their love for the animals, are on the front lines of this issue on a daily basis.

The actual number of rescue groups that exist is very difficult to ascertain, but larger organized groups can help place hundreds of dogs and cats in a year. These rescue groups survive on donations from loyal followers and countless hours put in by volunteers. Often the animals taken in have suffered years of abuse or neglect and are in dire need of medical care. Once the dog or cat enters the care of the rescue, they are provided with full medical care, are spayed/ neutered, so that they will not continue to contribute to the overpopulation problem and are given the love and attention that most have never experienced. The animals are then placed into a loving foster home while they wait for a permanent home. The process to help these animals find loving homes requires vast amounts of donations, both money and human hours.
Big Fluffy Dog Rescue based in Tennessee is a GiftBasketsPlus.com staff favorite. The tireless efforts and compassion that this group provides to unwanted and neglected animals is amazing. It was a difficult decision for the staff to pick just one rescue to start a donation program with, but plans are being made to partner with more rescues in the future. The staff is hoping for the success of this partnership to not only raise awareness of animal overpopulation but also help raise donations that the animals desperately need.
