" My Best Friend's Bowl "

Keeping Every Bowl Full

Donations Needed

We need your help. Since the beginning of 2014 our cost for purchasing food from a supplier rose a whopping 30% and just this week the cost is now 70% higher at $17.00 per bag. We had been paying $13.00 this year and last year was $10.00. We have to purchase cat food and are in need of some monetary donations or just a donation of cat food. Lots of it. We are able to buy 1,000lbs right now. That is only a 6 week supply.

We are turning to you for help. Donate food or make a monetary donation and we will be able to continue feeding the pets. This is a link to our donation page. You will also find locations where you can drop off food.

We don’t want this to happen.

Third Annual Super Bowl Sunday Food Drive

IMG_8040 smallOnce again, with the help of Laurie Sekeres and Ganley Subaru, we will hold our third annual “Stuff the Subaru” food drive on Sunday, February 2nd from 10am until 1:30pm Lakewood High School, 14100 Franklin Boulevard, Lakewood.

The game kicks off at 6:25pm so you have plenty of time to swing by and drop off your tax deductible donation.

Dry dog is most needed at this time, as well as 1 gallon zip-lock bags. Wet food is also appreciated, but not as crucial.

Help us make this our biggest collection ever! Hope to see you there.

H20 Kids at the Westerly

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.
