It's that time again. We're full steam ahead for another year of Happy Howlidays.
Since 2006, thanks to the support of community businesses, schools and individuals we have distributed over 153,000 pounds of food and treats to shelters and rescues to serve animals in transition. This year's recipients are listed below with a link to their websites.
Though we once supported 93 donation locations, we've learned to work smarter not harder. Our drive now focuses on pet food distributors, school drives, pet food retailers, veterinary offices and select retail and Heritage Bank locations. See link to the right for donation locations with addresses.
Beneficiaries this year are:
MissPits Rescue www.misspitsrescue.org
Kitsap Humane Society www.kitsap-humane.org
Harbor Association of Volunteers for Animals (HAVA) www.hava-heart.org
When does it start?
Gifts and donations will be accepted between November 1st and December 31st.
What is needed?
Unopened canned or dry dog and cat food, puppy and kitten food, pet infant formula, non-clumping cat litter, leashes, harnesses, beds and blankets, carriers and wire crates, flea treatments, and treats.
How and when will the donations be delivered?
After the donations are collected and sorted, Dugan Foundationwill arrange a time for each of the beneficiaries to pick up the items in Tacoma on the weekend of January 15, 2015. Monetary donations are divided and distributed to the beneficiaries during the month of January. Results, pictures, and details about the event will be posted on Dugan Foundation’s Facebook page. Anyone that wants to help with pick ups or distribution is welcome! Please send us an email
If you are a distributor, school community service coordinator, veterinary office, or other larger donor please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org We'd love to set up a drive in your school, or a pick up at your business.
Thank you for your interest and support!
A special thank you goes out to businesses, schools and individuals who have already agreed to help this year.
