Help Alpha Paw Feed Shelter Puppies: Every Purchase Counts!
A Helping Hand for the Howlidays
Charity is a very important component of our company. While we enjoy bringing amazing products to your fur babies at home, our work does not stop there. Each year, countless animals end up in shelters and many of these shelters are in short supply of essential items needed to care for them. This year, 2020, will be particularly hard for many pets.
The pandemic and a downturn in the economy has led to many families being pushed on the brink of poverty. Unfortunately, when that happens, pets are usually the first to suffer. At Alpha Paw, we want to ensure that those animals who find themselves in shelters will be cared for.
A Pawfect Pawtnership
Through philanthropic efforts and the generosity of our employees, we give back to the pet community even further. Which is why this new partnership is so important to us. The Greater Good Charities program’s Rescue Bank, partners with pet food manufacturers across the country to deliver pet food to shelters in need. When the dogs have enough to eat, they are more positive, happy, and they increase their chances of getting adopted!
How It Barks
For every ramp sold, Alpha Paw will donate 10 pounds of food to shelter dogs in need. It’s that simple. Your dog will have a ramp it loves, and shelter dogs will be fed for another day. Millions of dogs and cats end up in shelters every year, and more than a million are euthanized. We want to change that.
Why A Greater Good Charities Partnership Is So Important
Every year, approximately 6.5 million animals end up in shelters. A little more than half of those animals are dogs and the other half are cats. Sadly, approximately 1.5 million of those animals will be euthanized. Help us make the lives of these shelter animals a little more comfortable by making sure they have enough to eat. A small amount of food can go a long way. When the animals have enough to eat, they are happier, their attitude is improved, and they increase their chances of being adopted!
Alpha Paw’s Story
So, why are we so passionate about helping shelter animals and making their lives better? Well, here’s our story. Alpha Paw started with a dream. Founder Ramon Van Meer’s son Victor wanted to care for all animals. As soon as victor learned to speak, he wanted a pet, and he wanted to protect them all. His idealistic views were heartwarming and Ramon wanted to find a way to make his dream come true. The years went by and Victor’s passion for helping shelter dogs only deepened. They adopted rescued dogs, and then became rescuers themselves, saving the lives of more than 50 dogs, but Victor knew they could do more.
In 2018, when Victor was 10-years-old, his dream came true. Alpha Paw was born. Victor was ecstatic. For Ramon, a pet owner and animal lover all his life. This was the beginning of an amazing journey. On his own, he and Victor had saved many dogs’ lives, but with Alpha Paw, the opportunities were endless. And, Partnerships with companies like Greater Good Charities is paramount in helping shelter dogs live as comfortably as they can until they find their forever homes.
