Busch have come forward with a proposition.

For those who aren't aware, Anheuser-Busch is a brewing company here in America providing us with all of our beer needs.

It seems that Busch are passionate about more than just beer.

The company has just unveiled an incentive to encourage people to adopt during these difficult times.

It's a pretty irresistible offer...

From now until April 22, the beer brand will give a free 3 month supply of drinks to those who adopt or foster a dog through Midwest Animal Rescue & Services (MARS).

Busch launched this incentive as a response to numerous shelters closing due to the pandemic.

They are also donating $25,000 to MARS to help find animals loving homes across the country.

Social distancing has taken its toll...

"During these uncertain and lonelier times, people need an escape: cue the cute puppy memes and photos," said a spokesperson for Busch in a statement. "But as much as we need those cute puppy pics to help get us through social distancing, it’s actually them who need us."

Dogs are the perfect companions during these uncertain times...

"Social distancing is better with a furry friend by your side and a cold beer in your hand," they then added.
