Spread the love

Calling All Animal Lovers

BOBS from SKECHERS has partnered with national animal rescue organization Best Friends Animal Society to transport 25 dogs from Houston that were affected by Hurricane Harvey. The dogs traveled on the BOBS from SKECHERS Roving Rescue bus, a school bus that has been converted to transport pets exclusively.

Visitors met Hurricane Harvey animals at the Best Friends Pet Adoption Center in New York City while previewing BOBS newest Spring collection, which included the BOBS for Dogs styles. “We love finding new ways to make a difference, and the Roving Rescue bus has given other communities a chance to directly support Houston by adopting these pets and relieving Houston’s local animal shelter and pet adoption organizations,” said Robert Greenberg, CEO of SKECHERS. “We believe this is just the beginning of the transport and adoption bus. Through this vehicle, we will spread the word about Best Friends’ movement and our charitable shoe program, BOBS for Dogs, both of which are helping to save shelter animals. And given the incredible response, we’re confident that many of the dogs that survived Hurricane Harvey will find their forever homes by the year’s end.”

“To achieve our mission of getting the country to no-kill by 2025, we have to work together. This tour was a great example of the teamwork that will help us Save Them All!” said Elizabeth Jensen, Northeast Regional Director, Best Friends Animal Society – New York. The Roving Rescue bus is scheduled to travel to the West Coast for future Best Friends transport and adoption needs. SKECHERS stores will be holding a register roundup through November 15 to raise money for this mission. SKECHERS has already donated $10,000 to Best Friends’ Hurricane Harvey relief efforts, in addition to helping families who were devastated by the Hurricane, donating thousands of new footwear, socks, apparel, and SKECHERS Kids lunchboxes and backpacks.

For each pair of BOBS from SKECHERS sold in the United States, twenty-five cents is donated to Best Friends to help dogs and cats in America’s shelters. SKECHERS has committed to donating at least $3 million dollars to Best Friends.
