Three Dog Bakery has 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 kicked off May 1, and will run for the entire month.
“This is a wonderful event that we are proud to support every year,” said Jamie Wiebrecht, executive vice president of franchise operations and client experience. “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.”
According to the Humane Society of the United States, 6-8 million animals in the U.S. go into shelters each year. Consequently, there is always a need for more food. Every dollar raised will feed a shelter dog one meal. The Three Dog Bakery Feed a Dog Food Drive gives the community an easy way to support local dogs in need. All they have to do is make a donation at their local Three Dog Bakery, and the bakery will do the rest.
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.
