The Hound Haus not only provides tasty treat boxes for you and your dog, but we also provide special boxes full of dog essentials to homeless or struggling dog owners. We think that supporting people to be able to provide for their dogs helps the owners and the dogs therefore reduces the demands on animal shelters.
There are some negative responses around homeless people taking on dogs, as they are not thought to be in a stable condition to look after the animal. However homelessness is not a choice and there are hundreds of situations that can lead to someone being in this situation. In some cases people have lost everything but have kept their loyal pet with them throughout the ordeal. Separating a dog and its owner is very stressful, not only for the owner, but for the dog too as strong bonds can be made, especially in testing situations.
Homelessness is also a very isolating and scary situation to find yourself in and having a dog can not only be a means of comfort, but also great friendship and security.
Our boxes try to ensure dogs are being looked after well; they contain a selection of food, blankets, coats, leads, grooming essentials, worming and flea information and products as well as treats, chews and toys to keep the dogs stimulated. The packs are distributed through our Helping Hounds project where dog owners are also given vet advice and referral opportunities, mental health support and advice on housing and work options available to them.
There are hundreds of worthwhile causes supporting animal shelters, rescue and shelter staff and the dogs themselves in a bid to ease the problem. The Hound Haus aims to help dogs and struggling owners before the drastic last resort of giving a dog away. This means that hopefully dogs can avoid ending up in an animal shelter and although for some this leads to a happy new home, for many it can unfortunately mean the end. There are obviously some cases of animal cruelty where rightfully the dog would be taken away, but there are also many cases where an owner and dog have a strong loving bond but the strain of looking after a dog financially is taking its toll.
Our support boxes not only mean that the dog can be provided for, but can also relieve a considerable amount of stress from both the dog and its owner’s lives. In demanding financial situations knowing their dog is being cared for can make a big difference.
We add variety to dog’s lives by supplying a range of healthy treats and toys for them to enjoy.
We aim to help dogs and see they are taken care of, so hopefully they don’t end up separated from their owners in shelters.
We also give something back to dogs less fortunate; we provide a special dog box to a homeless or struggling dog owner for their dog to enjoy.
