Three Dog Bakery, producer of all-natural oven baked treats and food for dogs sold through pet-friendly bakery boutiques, launched its annual Feed a Dog Food Drive to help local dogs in need. Participating Three Dog Bakery stores across the United States, Canada, and Hong Kong are holding food drives to help feed dogs in their local communities.
Three Dog Bakery was founded out of love and the desire for all dogs to live long, healthy and happy lives. One of the goals of the Three Dog Bakery is to support dogs in need. In keeping with that mission, participating Three Dog Bakery stores around the world have partnered with local animal rescue organizations to feed shelter dogs. The dog food drive kicks off May 1, 2014, and will run for the entire month.
"This is a wonderful event that we are proud to support every year," said Jamie Wiebrecht, director of franchise operations. "There are many phenomenal organizations that are dedicated to serving homeless and neglected animals. We are extremely happy that we can play a role in raising awareness about shelter dogs while helping to provide thousands of pounds of food. Our hope is that the Three Dog Bakery food will help these organizations continue to make a difference for animals in their area."
Since the inception of Three Dog Bakery's Feed a Dog Food Drive in 2011, more than 50,000 pounds of dog food has been donated to dogs in need. In addition to the contributions collected in the bakeries, Three Dog Bakery headquarters will donate up to 500 pounds of additional food and treats to the three bakeries with the most donations.
