Helping Our Friends at FIDO
We are currently collecting food for our annual pet food drive, benefiting FIDO. In addition to the food we collect, the NWKGC we will be donating and additional $485.00, which are ½ the proceeds from this years online auction.
FIDO is based in Oregon City and is “Dedicated to helping people and their pet companions stay together.” They went throughout the state helping people and their pets during the wildfires and depleted their stock of food and supplies. Our donation will help them this coming winter as they continue their mission of “Providing pet food to ensure that the bond between people and their pet companions is unbroken.” More information can be found at www.fidoanimeals.org
If you have pet food or supplies you would like to donate, please contact us at znanwkgc@gmailcom. We have set up drop off points at Bartur Foods at 915 SE 10th Ave, in Portland, at the Layman’s in Gresham, or at the King’s in Canby
