By the time we reached the end date, we had over 500 likes! So true to our word, we picked up 500 POUNDS -- yep, thirteen 40-pound bags -- of dog food for the pups at The ANNA Shelter.
One of the coolest things about donating this food is that not only will it feed the pups during their temporary stay at the shelter, The ANNA Shelter also has teamed up with Erie Animal Network to combine their pet food banks to help pet owners in need.
We knew we wanted to donate food that we would feed to our own pups, so we checked in at one of Tess & Ed's favorite places -- Mud Puppies. We went with Victor Dog Foods, a brand that we have been contemplating switching the pooches over to for a few months ago. Kim so very graciously gave us a HUGE discount to help make this possible.
It felt to great being able to support the organizations that support the Erie animal community.
Oh, and we had the pleasure to meet this little lady yesterday. Meet Sapphire. Like a few of the dogs that have been shared this past week, Sapphire isn't doing so hot in the kennel situation. She would much rather be spending her time being a part of a family. Within her kennel, she is visibly sad. But as soon as she is out and has some human contact, she's a totally different dog. Any Erie peeps looking to adopt a new best friend, this is one you want to check out!!
Thank you so much to everyone who made this donation possible -- especially all of YOU that liked our page!!
