Woof Gang Bakery partners with animal welfare organizations to host adoption events, donate pet food and supplies, provide grooming services and raise funds.
This past year, animal rescue organizations received donations from Woof Gang Bakery and its customers, including 43,000 total pounds of pet food along with a mixture of pet grooming services, treats, toys and accessories, according to a press release and infographic from Woof Gang. That’s enough food to feed 236 beagles for a year. That much food could fill 100 bathtubs and would weigh as much as four elephants. US$54,000 was raised in donations, enough to spay or neuter 540 dogs or cats. That same amount could buy enough tennis balls to wrap around Disneyland three times. Grooming service donations equaled more than $12,500, which equates to 20,000 clipped claws, 1,250 pets’ teeth brushed or 277 poodles groomed.
In cooperation with pet rescue groups, Woof Gang Bakery aims to increase awareness of adoptable animals and their need for a second chance. In-store adoption events have helped match hundreds of pets with loving families, with more than 500 dogs and cats finding homes this past year.
