Fargo Brewing Company in North Dakota created a six-pack of beers each featuring adorable photos of “harder to place” dogs to help them get adopted. They partnered with a local rescue group called 4 Luv of Dog Rescue who has named these dogs “one-der dogs” because they usually can’t live with other animals thus making them harder to find homes for. The brewery held a special event where they sold the packs for $9 each and they will remain available throughout the week. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to 4 Luv of Dogs rescue.
This effort comes in the wake of many shelters across the country being at capacity. To encourage adoption, some have actually decreased their adoption fees. Recently, Lizzo brought shelter puppies on stage and urged her audience to adopt.
These before and after photos make it clear that adoption is life-saving and a far better option than purchasing puppies from pet stores or breeders. Many dogs in pet stores come from terrible puppy mills where they are traumatized, abused, repeatedly bred, and murdered. Some even use gas chambers as a horrific method for euthanasia.
