Showing Love for Dogs and Dog-Lovers through AKC Humane Fund

Animal Welfare Articles

Carpet One Floor & Home has teamed up with the American Kennel Club (AKC) and supporting the AKC Humane Fund with a $10,000 donation, to show their appreciation for dogs and dog-lovers during their Relax, it’s…Lees Flooring Sale which runs from March 2nd through April 10th.  

Relax, it’s…Lees carpet is one of our most pet-friendly brands. With stain-resistant attributes and an even a 25-year “No Exclusions” stain warranty that covers stains most other stain warranties don’t.  One of the most significant stains covered under this warranty is pet stains.  But, a pet-friendly carpet brand is just one way that Carpet One Floor & Home shows their love for dogs.

Their recent donation to the AKC Humane Fund will help support dogs and the people who love them through grants and scholarships to individuals and organizations who are helping dogs. These include:

Grants for Domestic Violence Shelters that Permit Pets

The AKC Humane Fund gives grants to shelters that house victims of domestic abuse with their pets. Too often, fear for the safety of a beloved pet is enough to keep a victim of domestic violence suffering in a dangerous situation at home. AKC Humane Fund grants help these pet owners find peace and safety and transform their lives.

Rescue Grants

The AKC Humane Fund also provides funding for non-profit rescue organizations to cover the cost of veterinary care and vital supplies needed to help dogs find their forever homes.

Scholarships

The AKC Humane Fund awards thousands of dollars in scholarships every year to students who are pursuing education focusing on the care of pets and the advancement of responsible pet ownership.

At Carpet One Floor & Home, we know that pets are an important part of our lives and we’re excited to be helping out the AKC in their efforts. And don’t forget to check out more tips for pet-friendly floor on AKC’s website.
