This is a case of beer, in cans, with very special labels and brilliant idea by animal shelter volunteer Jerad Ryan to help dogs who have difficulty finding forever homes.
Ryan, who works for a company called Northern Plains Label in North Dakota that produces beer labels, told Food and Wine:
“I approached my boss about donating beer can labels to a brewery willing to feature our dogs. He loved the idea. I asked Fargo Brewing if they would be willing to do this for us and they loved it too. They have gone above and beyond with donating profits and having an event where the public can come and meet our Oneder dogs, as they don’t get to attend events with the other dogs. The response from the community has already been amazing and heartwarming.”

Fargo introduced the new can of its Original Lager this week at an event hosted with the 4 Luv of Dog Rescue, dedicated to the six dogs featured on the labels. The dogs are all ‘Oneders’, which means they struggle to get adopted because they have problems socializing with other dogs.
Unfortunately for Oneders, many families and foster homes already have at least one other animal in their homes, leaving these pups in limbo waiting for a suitable forever home.
“It’s our hope that through this event we can raise a little awareness about these ‘one’derful pooches and hopefully find them homes of their own!” Fargo wrote on Facebook.
The limited-edition beer will available at Fargo’s brewery as long as supplies last. Hopefully, it will help the puppies get adopted!
