Donate Food to Shelter Dogs with a Click

I spoke with Anthony this morning and asked him about his desire to help shelter animals. Anthony told me about Daisy, his Yellow Lab that his family adopted from a shelter. Since starting his company three years ago, he regularly donates to shelters and also to dogs in need of food after catastrophic events. They donated 15 thousand pounds of food to dogs affected by Hurricane Ike in Houston. When the recession hit Illinois, his company teamed with Wellness and donated 25,000 pounds of dog food to people that otherwise couldnít afford to keep their pets. Keeping dogs out of shelters in the first place is a personal mission of his. Anthony shared that the challenging work people do for shelters and rescue organizations often goes unnoticed. He couldnít imagine having to deal with life and death issues for dogs daily. Donating dog food is the least he feels he can do. Itís important that all of his donations are really not about his company, but that itís about the dogs. He wants the focus to stay with the pets in need.

When I first looked at the K9Cuisine Facebook page on October 27, I noticed about 2,500 fans. Four days to reach 5,000 fans so that 5,000 lbs. of high quality dog food could be donated to shelters and rescues. Thatís a stretch, I thought, but possible. When I spoke to Anthony on the morning of October 28, I asked him how many fans he had when he started this initiative. His answer: 230 on October 1st. Wow, that was a much lower number than I expected to hear. At the time of this writing on October 28, there are 3,514 fans. Letís help K9 Cuisine reach 5,000 fans by the end of the day on October 31. When you click here and ďLikeĒ their Facebook page, you will help provide 21,551 cups of organic, grain free dog food to shelters. Thatís an awful lot of tail wagging during 21,551 meals delivered to dogs. Anthony isn’t kidding when he says his company is “Delivering Love, One Bag at a Time.”

What do you do that helps improve the lives of animals, whether it’s your own or animals looking for their forever homes? Thanks for posting your comments below.
