The Good Dog Food Bowl (TGDFB) came into existence in 2004 when I became aware of the alarming number of family pets that were being given up permanently due to a temporary financial hardship their owners were going through. I felt the need to act, to help keep these pets where they belonged...with their families!
The intent behind TGDFB is to help pet families in the greater Phoenix, AZ metropolitan area be able to keep their beloved pets in their home and NOT relinquished to an already overburdened shelter or rescue system due to the temporary inability to purchase dog food for their pet(s). Sometimes a family needs help just one time...just one bag of dog food can keep that dog in their home where we want them to be. Sometimes it's a bit longer, and that's okay. We also can assist with other basic necessities that may be needed (puppy pads, collars/leads, crates, bedding, etc) as long as we have some on hand. We are here to help our pet loving community the best that we can. If help is required for an extended period of time and we can't meet the family's needs, TGDFB can offer a list of resources for further assistance.
The Good Dog Food Bowl is a not for profit organization that relies solely on the kindness and generosity of our compassionate donors and volunteers to help local pet families in need.
