Recently, the Jersey City-based dog rescue, “See Spot Rescued,” received a $500 Dogly Do Good creativity grant as a result of shelter volunteer Christina Lee and her dog Maggie Munchkin’s creativity within the “Dogly” app.
The grant is made possible by “Dogly,” a free, gamified-for-good photo-sharing app for dog lovers that donates to shelters and rescue organizations across the country. The app is available on iPhone, Android, iPad and Android tablet.
With “Dogly,” the more “loves” a user’s photo gets the more “loves” he or she donates to a specific animal shelter at no personal cost.
Shelters can also create “Dogly” profiles and add to their total when their own posts of adoptable dogs get loves. Through “Dogly’s” partnership with the Petfinder Foundation and alliance with Petfinder.com, users can search more than 10,000 shelters and rescue organizations around the country to select a shelter to benefit.
Monthly grants are given to the shelter with the most “loves” and additional grants are given for creativity four times per month. “See Spot Rescued” is one of “Dogly’s” February creativity grant winners.
“See Spot Rescued” is a non-profit 5013 volunteer based dog rescue organization that focuses on saving dogs from high kill shelters — no matter their age, breed, or health. The rescue strives to make the best possible matches between families and dogs, based on previous history, breed and experience in order to fulfill their mission of finding their dogs a lifetime companion to provide eternal, unconditional love.
All donations help fund medical care, vaccination, transport and care.
This grant will be put towards surgery for Chad Lowe, a 10-12 month old, 20 lb. male with two broken legs.
Chad is still looking for a foster family in the Red Bank area to care for him during his surgery.
