National Adopt a Shelter Dog Month

Dog shelters and rescues are an important part of the Earth Rated community, and they’re facing more pressure than ever to accommodate an increase in surrendered animals. In honour of National Adopt A Shelter Dog Month, we welcomed our followers to nominate a shelter or rescue for a chance to receive a donation of foster kits from us.

Our kits included lavender-scented poop bags, a poop bag dispenser, and a chic branded bandana.⁠ The goal was to inspire people around us to be a part of the giving experience.

We’re proud to share that we received over 730 nominations and were able to give away 80 cases of foster kits (that’s 1,200 units) to deserving shelters!

Congratulations to our 2022 winners
