We were once again thrilled to be invited by The Preston and Steve Show to participate in WMMR’s Camp Out For Hunger! The week long event was held at Xfinity Live in Philadelphia and as in years past, our supporters and fans didn’t let us down!
It’s such an honor to be involved in this huge event which allows us to stock the food pantry at the city’s intake shelter. Without the donations we receive through Camp Out For Hunger, we would not be able to support our rescue partners or help feed the pets of the city’s neediest residents. The donations we receive allow us to help families who might not otherwise be able to keep their pets fed and help to lower surrender rates due to the costs associated with having pets.
This year, thanks to our fans and supporters, donations increased tremendously at our off-site drop-off locations and thanks to Pet Valu and Pet360, we literally saw food come in by the truckload! We couldn’t do this without the support of each and every one of you and are especially grateful for our corporate partners.
Thank you so much to everyone at The Preston and Steve Show for having us. We look forward to Camp Out For Hunger every year and seeing so many people come out and support Philly’s homeless pets. We value your support of our mission more than you could ever know!
From the bottom of our furry little hearts, we THANK YOU!
It is our favorite time of the year! This is Philadoptables’ fourth year collecting donated pet food with WMMR’s The Preston & Steve Show! This week- long on-site collection event features Philly’s favorite radio personalities living in RVs in a parking lot. This event has been collecting people food Philabundance for years and the guys saw the need to feed Philly’s homeless and hungry animals as well. Donated food to Philadoptables will be distributed to people in need, wonderful foster parents from Philly’s animal control shelter, ACCT Philly, and the amazing rescue partners who take animals from that shelter. RIGHT NOW folks like you are setting up pet food drives in their offices, retail locations, churches and schools. We will provide you with a letter explaining the event and posters to get you started. All collections must be dropped off to us by Friday, November 29th OR at the event Monday, December 2-Friday Dec 6 at Xfinity Live’s parking lot. Want to help? Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or you can find out more on our Facebook page!
If at first you don’t succeed…oh wait- we DID succeed and we are gonna do it again! Last year Philadoptables, with your help, constructed a giant doggie play yard at ACCT Philly. Our next project, starting in approx two weeks is twice as nice! TWO more new doggie play yards where dogs can run, jump, and play. Once that is done we will be moving to the other side of the building to replace the three damaged smaller dog runs with brand new safe fencing. All of this does not come cheap. We worked hard to win a grant from the cool people at Animal Farm Foundation but we are still $6,000 short of our construction goal.
We are currently looking for friends who would be willing to sponsor a run, which will help us to offset the costs of some of the fencing, fence inserts, benches and other necessities. Your generous donation will earn you a beautiful plaque with your name on a run of your choice, a special acknowledgment on our social media pages and a beautiful framed picture of a Philly shelter dog enjoying the new run.
Donations can be made by clicking the blue DONATE button on the Philadoptables’ Facebook page.
