Island Dog Brewing wants to help out old Maine dogs.

 

Island Dog Brewing in South Portland gets its name from the love of the owner's rescue dogs Felix (Puerto Rico) and Mateo (Costa Rica) and the love of the Maine coast. It seemed only fitting when they were approached to raise money for Old Dogs New Digs.

Old Dogs New Digs is NOT a shelter, but a network of volunteers working with shelters in Maine, Colorado, New Mexico and Costa Rica. They are a nonprofit of volunteers, dedicated to helping homeless and displaced senior dogs. They work with shelters and rescues, who have ownership of the dog, to help get the dog into a loving foster or forever home. 100% of the funds raised for Old Dogs New Digs support these sweet older dogs' health and well-being.

Island Dog Brewing and Ampion Renewable Energy, a community solar company, are getting together to raise some funds for these old pups at Old Dog New Digs. If you get solar power through Ampion, they will make a $100 donation to ODND and you will get $100 bucks to Island Dog Brewing.
