2011 Pet Food Drive Totals

We wish to say

to everyone who supported and donated to our
2011 Hungry Bowl Pet Food Drive
for the Iron County Animal Shelters.

We picked up a total of 1,946 pounds of pet food 
from the boxes that we had located at
Urban Dawgs
CAL Ranch
and Cedar Veterinary Hospital

More donations were made directly to the animal shelters and Cedar Animal Rescuebringing our totals to well over 2,000 pounds of pet food. The following animal shelters are NO-KILL SHELTERS and are sharing the pet food with each other.

Where Did The Donated Pet Food Go?

We have been told by our pet food drop off locations for the Hungry Bowl Pet Food Drive that there have been a lot of donations.  The problem is that no one from D&B's Pet Sitting has gotten those donations.  Someone has been picking these donations up and NOT delivering them to D&B's or to the shelter recipients due to receive the donations (Iron County Animal Shelter, Cedar Animal Rescue, Enoch and Parowan Animal Shelters).  Anyone else, not associated with one of these shelters is not authorized to take the pet food.

There was an undetermined amount of food delivered directly to the shelters by people donating as well as monies that were given in the form of gift cards to help them out.
