Summary

The Pongo Fund is Oregon's Pet Food Bank. Because hungry people have hungry pets. We work for the day when no dog or cat goes hungry or ends up in a shelter simply because their families cannot afford to keep them fed. By providing both emergency pet food supplies and spay-neuter assistance to struggling families, we succeed in reducing shelter populations and keeping people and their pets together.

Challenge

Devastating financial circumstances continue to rip families apart simply because they cannot afford to feed their family pets. Area shelters are overwhelmed with beloved but abandoned animals, all because a family cannot muster the pennies per day to keep them fed. Despite best efforts, their fate is dismal. The pain touches every single family, regardless of where they call home. And during these challenging times, that could be any one of us.

Solution

The Pongo Fund is Oregon's Pet Food Bank. We work tirelessly to save dogs and cats from being surrendered to overcrowded shelters when their families cannot afford to keep them fed. By providing emergency pet food and spay-neuter assistance to anyone in honest need, we succeed in reducing shelter populations and keeping people and their pets together.

Long-Term Impact

We are reducing shelter populations and unnecessary euthanizations while helping families and their pets stay together. Further working to ensure that every family pet has access to humane care and a consistent supply of high quality food.
