I’d rather be with my dog

I’ve been seeing posts about an organization called “I’d rather be with my dog”. To be honest, I thought it was rather tongue in cheek, but then one day I decided to look it up. https://idratherbewithmydog.net/. This is an organization selling dog-themed clothing and every support helps support animal rescue. 5 – 10% of their proceeds go to animal rescue. In addition to their general dog rescue, they rescue beagles from animal testing and 100% of the funds donated from that branch of I’d Rather Be With My Dog go to beagle rescue and care.

I’d Rather Be With My Dog is more than company, it’s a life style brand for people who are truly “obsessed” with their dogs. They have customers from all over the world who buy their gear. People truly feel the IRBWMD love in all corners of the world. And it doesn’t have to equate to a love of dogs, either. You can desire love and compassion for all living creatures and know that by supporting this cause you are helping to make a better life for dogs everywhere.

They donate to different causes, everything from rescues, to canine cancer awareness, or military dogs overseas who need our help. Every time you purchase something from their site you have a direct impact on an animal in need.

I’d rather be with my dog was started by a musician, a rock’ n ‘roller to be precise. He was sitting at his computer one evening, struggling to put words to a particular riff, and then he noticed his faithful dog Oggy, sitting next to him, staring into his eyes. His love life was not going too well at that time, so he was inspired to write his song about how he’d rather be with his faithful dog than anyone, so, lo and behold, the song was born.

Recently they saved 4,000 beagles from a life worse than death in animal testing situations. If you would like adoption/foster information for these dogs, contact Kindness Ranch, Priceless Pet. Homeward Trails or Triangle Beagle Rescue.

I’d rather be with my dog is also looking for donations of soft blankets, towels and toys. If you have some to give, either contact the above shelters or your local shelters.

Thanks for stopping by.
