IdealCharities is an IdealTraits employee-driven charitable fund, used to support charities and organizations important to our employees. Participating employees vote on a charity to support each quarter of the year. K-9 Stray Rescue League was suggested to the IdealCharities team by Sales Representative, Shane Kerchen.

The K-9 Stray Rescue League is on a mission to rescue as many “well-tempered, adoptable dogs as possible from county shelters’ euthanasia lists and owner surrenders, provide a humane environment for rescued dogs until permanent homes are found, and educate the public on responsible pet ownership.” The rescue vets new owners, provides education on the best ways to responsibly care for your new pet, and even accepts owner surrenders when necessary to ensure these animals have the opportunity to receive the love and care that they deserve. K-9 Stray Rescue League is a state and federally-licensed non-profit organization that is managed, maintained, and staffed by a team of dedicated volunteers. They say completing their mission is not a paycheck, but a passion for each and every volunteer.
Why did you feel it was important for IdealCharities to support Be the Match?
K9 Stray is a rescue shelter for dogs throughout Oakland County, MI. They rescue as many adoptable dogs as possible from county shelters’ euthanasia lists and owner surrenders. They provide a safe environment for all the dogs until they find their permanent homes and educate the public on responsible pet ownership along the way! I’m a massive dog lover so any opportunity I have to help any pup out, I’m going to do so! Whatever the reason may be, unfortunately, there are some dogs who are surrendered; having a safe place for them to be sheltered until they find their forever homes, is so important! K9 Stray is giving dogs a new “leash” on life!
