What is Pup Package?
Pup Package started in 2016 as just an idea to help provide basis essentials to local foster and rescues in San Diego, CA. Since the start of our journey, we have been able to donate above & beyond the original anticipated amount of Signature Pup Packages to over 15 rescues in 5 states throughout US and we’re only getting started!
What is one of your success stories?
One of our most exciting success stories happened in August 2017. One of the first rescues we donated our signature pup packages to reached back out to us saying they are rescuing 12 dogs and are in need of the basics. They immediately thought of us and of course, we were able to help! Our intention is for rescues and fosters to contact us if they’re in need of the basic essentials (leash, collar, towel, etc) and they can remain focused on increasing the rate of adoptions. Having the ability to help a “return rescue” was so humbling and fulfilling to our growing organization!
What’s your best rescue tip?
The greatest rescue tip we have to share: don’t force yourself in a dog’s space. Often times they are scared, confused, worried, or stressed. As a lover of all dogs – you need to make sure you recognize the signs and provide space for the dog as needed. This helps set them up for success and provides the comfort & safety to adjust while transitioning toward a furever home!
What is your greatest need?
Pup Package is always accepting new or gently used items to put into the signature packages. Such as:
- Blankets & towels
- Collars & leashes (all sizes)
- Dog treats & food (unopened)
- Waste bags
- Flea & tick medicine (unused)
- Shampoo, brushes, anything for bath time!
- Kennels & crates (all sizes, in working condition)
- Dog beds (new or gently used)
Why does “Too Licky” support Pup Package?
We chose Pup Package to be one our supported charities because we believe in the work they’re doing to support fosters and rescues. After what we have learned from shelter volunteers and after having a foster dog of our own, there is a HUGE need for essentials. These shelters need all the support they can get and having a resource like Pup Package is invaluable. Not to mention, the founder has a deep passion for rescues with oodles of energy to make a huge impact!
