Kibble Pet Food Banks in the news
October The Kibble Pet Food Bank Network turns five years old! We have helped more than 21,000 animals since we started, keeping many of them out of overburdened shelters.
Thank you to Global Pet Foods for their generous donations of cat and dog food to our Saint John and Oromocto Kibble Pet Food Banks. These bags will assist pet owners facing economic challenges and provide a viable option to surrendering or abandoning their animals.
As of May, the Kibble Pet Food Bank Network has fed more than 7,000 animals through our eight pet food banks.
As of January, 2011, the Kibble Pet Food Bank Network has helped 5,000 pets and livestock and provided more than 25,000 bowls of food.
Monday, Oct. 4, marks the second anniversary of the Kibble Pet Food Bank Network. Thanks to the tireless support of people like you, we have been able to help more than 3,300 animals in the last year, and nearly 4,500 pets since we began our mission in 2008. By providing information, supplies and pet food to pet owners in need, we're able to help keep pets with their families in times of financial challenge, fire or other emergency. This year's total represents an average of more than 250 animals helped each month, and three times the number of pets and livestock helped in our first year.
This amazing success of Atlantic Canada's first pet food bank network is made possible by the hard work of our six partner outlets, our dedicated volunteers, and you, our generous donors! THANK YOU for all you do to keep New Brunswick pet food bowls full and pets where they are loved.
Thank you to everyone who has gotten behind the NBSPCA Fur Safety campaign! Your generous sponsorship is helping us equip New Brunswick fire departments with life-saving pet oxygen mask kits as we work to keep pets safe from emergencies.
Anyone interested in sponsoring the $100 kits is asked to contact the NBSPCA at (506) 458-8208. Donations can be sent by cheque made out to the New Brunswick SPCA, with a note the funds are for the Fur Safety campaign. Please mail the cheque to the New Brunswick SPCA office at PO Box 1412, Stn. A, Fredericton, NB E3B 5A3.
The Kibble Pet Food Bank Network is pleased and proud to welcome the Woodstock Food Bank and the Victoria County SPCA to its organization.
The Kibble Pet Food Bank Network concludes its first calendar year with a total 1,135 cats and dogs helped through our four venues. That's equal to 2.5 TONNES OF FOOD and 16 TIMES the number of animals we helped in our first month! Dozens of horses, cattle and other livestock our NBSPCA animal protection officers helped make the total even higher.
It's through your tireless support and generous donations we are keeping pets in their homes and saving more from being abandoned to fend for themselves. THANK YOU, and here's looking forward to helping even more animals in 2010.
Oromocto SPCA marks a good year and its becoming the fourth member of the Kibble Pet Food Bank network.
One year after it launched, the Kibble Pet Food Bank Network is serving 12 times its original numbers. Through its four outlets, the network now provides pet food to 140 cats and dogs monthly. This is up from the original dozen being helped from one outlet. Demand for services continues to rise as word of what we are doing spreads and the economy takes its toll on pet owners. THANK YOU to everyone who helps make this service possible!
The Kibble Pet Food Bank Network is six months old! Since the NBSPCA launched this initiative in October, we have grown to three outlets in southern New Brunswick, with more to come provincewide. An average 60 cats and dogs a month benefit from this project! Pet food is distributed in partnership with the Sussex Sharing Club, the Hampton Food Basket and Mobile 1 in Moncton.
Thanks to your generous support, pet parents facing financial challenges are able to feed and care for their animals. As many people depend on their pets for companionship, the relief of knowing their four-footed family members have food means a lot. This keeps pets out of overburdened animal shelters, and reduces the stress on the pets and their owners that surrendering them would mean. Thanks again for all your support!
Oct 4, 2008 First Kibble Pet Food Bank opens in partnership with the Sussex Sharing Club.
