I don’t learn about you, however my first response was “Awww.” Founding father of nonprofit Operation ResCUTE Laurie Brown-Nagin discovered a strategy to combine adorableness with serving to rescue canines. The nonprofit affords this line of too-cute stuffed canines together with their very own books based mostly on an actual canine’s precise rescue story. Focused towards kids ages three and up, the mission is “to show empathy to the youthful era and encourage them to drive the choice to undertake a rescue canine or cat for his or her subsequent pet.”
Laurie’s first rescue canine, Jingles, was — and continues to be — her muse. “Simply figuring out there are greater than 6.5 million canines and cats coming into shelters every year and roughly solely 30% getting adopted, I knew it was time to dedicate my efforts to serving to different pets like Jingles discover their loving houses,” she explains. “It’s so rewarding to know you may make a distinction on this world and provides these great animals the love they so deserve! That’s the reason 100% of our income go on to shelters to assist in their adoption efforts.”
Clearly, Operation ResCUTE is off to a terrific begin. So, what’s subsequent within the plan? “If we create the attention and get folks on board to assist save these animals, I hope to broaden the ResCUTE line to incorporate the tales of extra rescue canines and cats,” Laurie says. “As well as, I’m hoping to create one other media car for ResCUTES, which might contain movie and/or tv programming. The extra the message can develop, the better the variety of animals we might help save. We have now to be the voice for these animals left behind and alter their lives forthe higher.” Every stuffed canine and ebook retails for $22.95.
