2014 Pounds for Pets Challenge

November 26, 2014

Your Dog Tired Parent Association presents the 2014 Pounds for Pets Classroom Challenge. Each year we collect donations to purchase dog and cat food for local are food banks. Many families in our community are in need of assistance to put food on their tables. We often don’t stop to think that these families may include pets who are also going hungry. We identified this need a few years ago and now annually collect donations to provide much needed pet food to these families.

Your donations help us purchase wholesale dog and cat food at a discounted rate to share with pets in need. Kimberly McCourtney, Alaska Garden & Pet representative and Dog Tired client, has arranged for the Iams/Eukanuba Corporation to donate one bag of cat or dog food for every five bags we purchase, stretching your donation dollar even further. Our goal is to raise enough to continue this program past the holidays. Donations accepted in the lobby of Dog Tired or by calling us at (907) 334-6962. Donations can also be mailed to Dog Tired Doggie Daycare 310 E. Fireweed Lane, Anchorage, AK 99503. Cash, checks and credit cards accepted. Please tell your friends, every donation counts – together we can make a difference in the lives of Anchorage’s furry friends.
