Keeping Every Bowl Full
The Friends of the Lakewood Dog Park have invited us to be the recipient of donations collected at the 2013 Santa Paws event, Sunday November 24th from 12-4 pm at Pet’s General Store 16821 Madison Avenue in Lakewood. You can bring pet food or make a $6.00 donation and receive one of our key chains. We will have our unique dog or cat related key chains available for a $6.00 donation. Each one is handmade by our director and no two are alike. They are colorful, loaded with lampwork beads, crystals and the tiny charms. Here is an assortment of the charms used and an example of each. Great stocking stuffers for the holidays or just because you want one. Help us keep the bowls full by purchasing one for you and maybe a friend too!
We were fortunate to collect $465.00 this year from the generous supporters at Yappy Hour!!!!! Thank you to everyone that came out!!
We’re so excited to be invited to Yappy Hour, Thursday August 22, 5-8pm!!!
My Best Friend’s Bowl will be featured at Yappy Hour out under the tents on the corner of West 110th and Clifton Blvd. They are just over 2 years old and are already giving out over 450 lbs of food weekly to owners in need. Their mission is to help owners in need with pet food to help maintain the pet’s health, keep the pets with their loved ones instead of being surrendered or being set free to fend for themselves. Use the link above to find out more about this needed service.
Our friends at Nature’s Bin will be on hand with awesome food fare from their newly built kitchen facilities in Lakewood Ohio. Pet-Tique is sponsoring the usual beer, wine and water options. Use the link to visit their website.
The tents will be out, so for a $5 donation to My Best friends Bowl you can enjoy a great Cleveland evening outside! We will have raffle baskets as well to help raise money for this great cause.
There will be a Donation Stack which will be a stack of selected foods that are 15% if you buy it to donate it to My Best Friends Bowl.Read More

On Monday August 5th, the residents of The Westerly Apartments enjoyed the 6 students and their counselor who joined them in a “Mass Bagging” event for My Best Friend’s Bowl. The students and the residents weighed dog and cat food, packaged and labeled 640 pounds total. It was quite an undertaking and they accomplished the job in less than 2 hours and with little or no spillage!
We’d like to thank Sarah, the H20 counselor and the kids, who will be entering 6th grade this fall around Lakewood: Emily, Maddy, Esther, Joey, Kyle and Sean for helping us out with this project. They all said they would like to do it again and we’re sure the residents would love to have them again. Thanks to out to Jackie, Aileen, Brenda, Irene and Johnnie from the Westerly for helping out and for hosting us.
On Thursday, May 23rd, the students of LCA held a fundraiser for My Best Friend’s Bowl. The student council and their advisor Mr. Tabar came up with the idea of “Dress Like Your Favorite Animal Day” Students paid $2.00 to dress up for the day and raised $211.60 for us. This will help us purchase 1,000 pounds of dog or cat food and feed 100 dogs or 263 cats!
Mr. Tabar also took some photos of the students. We think they had a great time and we KNOW they did a great jobfor us. Thanks so much kids and Mr. Tabar! Click the photos for a larger view.
My Best Friend’s Bowl is so excited to announce we have received a $1600.00 grant from the ASPCA to purchase food!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We will be taking a road trip soon. This will purchase 8000lbs of food and feed hundreds of pets in need.
Included in our grant are funds for the Waterloo Alley Cat Project in the Collinwood neighborhood on the east side. We were paired when we both applied for funding and it was recognized that we have a resource that could help them! The group feeds and tends to stray or feral cats, trapping them to have them neutered or spayed and releasing them. We will be picking up 2,000 of cat food to drop to them soon.
Thank you ASPCA, we are very thankful for your generosity and grateful that you recognize all our hard work that helps our community and beyond!Read More
