Rock & Rawhide - The Process

As you know, we do a lot of product reviews and as a result we do end up with a lot of extra things we wouldn't necessarily use for ourselves or use as a giveaway.

A while back, we had collected a pile of doggie products to give to a shelter. We called around to see what shelter we could donate too, but the ones we spoke with were quite picky with what they would accept...which totally shocked us! We thought they would be happy to accept dog product donations.

Alas, when we were recently at our vet (Seaport Animal Hospital) for a routine checkup, we saw a bin for donations to Rock & Rawhide.

Rock & Rawhide's mission is to increase adoptions and quality of life of dogs and cats in shelters, by providing distraction therapy and noise/stress reduction through the donations of toys, tough chew items, Kongs, Nylabones, rope toys, bones, rawhides, blankets and more. If a dog is chewing, it’s not barking! Less noise = less stress. In turn, dogs can pass their evaluations at shelters, and show more of their personality, making them more adoptable.

What's great is that Rock & Rawhide collects the donated items and distributes them to adoption shelters based on need. For us this was the perfect solution! We can give back to shelters and also be more environmentally friendly by not tossing out dog products we don't need.

  1. That's a great organization. I also have tons of stuff from time to time that we don't use. I will look them up and see if there is a Rock & Rawhide near me. Usually I take things to my vet or people I know that have dogs who are struggling financially. Good to know post - well written,
