CANIDAE has been a huge supporter of The Pongo Fund Pet Food Bank since 2009, when their initial donation of $125,000 worth of premium pet food helped this very important charity open their doors. Larry Chusid founded The Pongo Fund Pet Food Bank to help people feed their beloved pets, so the animals can remain with the family instead of being surrendered to a shelter. Although many who receive the lifesaving pet food from The Pongo Fund never imagined they’d ever be unable to feed their pet without help, it can and does happen to all walks of life.
To date, The Pongo Fund Pet Food Bank has provided meals for over 50,000 hungry animals throughout Oregon & Southwest Washington. Now it's our turn to give back to Larry and The Pongo Fund, and I'm asking for your help.
The Pongo Fund is entered in the Chase Community Giving contest for a share of $5 million in grants to the winning charities. A win for The Pongo Fund would come at a very good time, because the charity was recently forced out of their building after it was severely damaged by rain and slated for demolition. The pet food bank has located a new home, but will now have to pay rent and restock the warehouse.
CANIDAE will continue to lend a hand with donations of their premium pet food and treats, but it takes more than one company to keep Larry's lifesaving work going. Winning $50,000 would go a long way in helping The Pongo Fund get back on their feet so they can continue to feed pets in need.

I know how much Larry will appreciate your help, but more importantly, your vote can help save the life of a hungry dog or cat waiting for a meal and you will be helping to keep a pet with the family who loves them. A child doesn't understand the complexities of a family budget. We do, and with a simple vote we can help a pet do what they do best – give unconditional love to their family.
Please vote today – the contest ends on September 19th!
