Thanks to the Thundershirt Co., Las Lomas K9 Rescue & Adoption Foundation Inc. of Floresville and Tracy’s Dogs of La Vernia and Floresville have received grants of Thundershirts, innovative jackets that use gentle pressure to calm dogs and ease their anxiety. The company has partnered with the Foundation to donate Thundershirts to adoption organizations across the country. All recipients are members of, the largest online database of homeless pets.

The goal of the grant program is to reduce the stress and anxiety in shelter dogs, in turn making them more adoptable and better able to find their forever homes. In 80 percent of dogs that wear Thundershirts, owners find their pets are less fearful of thunder, have less separation and travel anxiety, hyperactivity, and leash pulling, and more.

“Since Thundershirt was founded in 2009, we’ve been committed to supporting animal shelters and rescue groups nationwide,” said Phil Blizzard, founder of Thundershirt Co. “The Foundation does incredible work and we are proud of this partnership as we continue our mission of bringing relief to the millions of dogs affected by anxiety and fear issues.”

The Foun-dation, a nonprofit public charity, helps homeless pets by saving lives through adoptions, helping shelters prepare for and recover from disaster, and working to make sure animal-welfare organizations across the country are more sustainable. Its mission is to ensure no adoptable pet is euthanized for lack of a home.

Since 2003, the foundation has provided more than $20 million in grants to animal-welfare organizations and member shelters and rescue groups.
