Three Dog Bakery launched its annual "Feed a Dog Food Drive" on May 1 to help local dogs in need. Participating Three Dog Bakery stores across the US, Canada and Hong Kong are holding food drives to help feed dogs in their local communities, and the drive will run the entire month of May.
“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.
New shelter data casts doubt on whether the pet population and pet ownership are truly growing.
While the pandemic caused unprecedented suffering worldwide in 2020, the disruptions to dogs, cats and other pets adoption numbers may normalize in 2021.
