Today’s Solutions: September 25, 2022

About 3.3 million dogs enter US animal shelters every year. And while some are adopted, many others are left behind.

In an effort to change that, a Florida brewery is working to help dogs find their forever homes – by putting their faces on beer cans. Motorworks Brewing has released a special four-pack of one of its flagship beers this month featuring adoptable dogs from a local animal shelter.

The brewery introduced the beer at its January “Yappy Hour” last weekend – a monthly event to raise funds for local animal charities. The pups featured on the beer cans, as well as several other adoptable dogs, were at the event to show off their wagging tails in person. Some even found their forever home.

In addition to helping find new homes for dogs, beer sales were also high, with the proceeds going to benefit the local organization, Shelter Manatee, and its efforts to build a brand new facility for animals in need.
