There's long been the idea of "paying it forward." It means when something kind is done for you, you're responsible for passing on that good deed and helping someone else. Rather than "paying them back" for their kindness, you "pay it forward" to someone else.
But "paying it forward" isn't something we usually see from shelters, who are already daily serving their communities. That's why we were so surprised and awed at what happened with our July Dogly grant winner, K9 Paw Print Rescue.
The Dogly app lets users view shelter animals from around the US and vote to give needy shelters a monthly grant, and right now winning shelters also receive two Petcube Cameras to stream their adoptable dogs. K9 Paw Print Rescue decided to take their doing good one step (or paw) further.
In the spirit of dogs helping dogs, K9PPR donated one of their Petcubes, along with extra doggy sweaters and jackets to the Pug Hollow Sanctuary. K9PPR actually discovered Pug Hollow on Dogly and immediately fell in love with their mission to support seniors.
Some of the pups K9PPR plans on helping with its grant include (in clockwise order) Chai, who will receive treatment for skin and immune issues, Daisy, who will receive orthopedic surgery, Calypso, who will get assistance with trauma requiring amputation, and Birch, who will have treatment for an eye ulcer and skin infection.
Feeling inspired to do some good of your own? Another $1,000 grant and two more Petcubes will be donated to the shelter with the most loves at the end of August.
