The Camp Out For Hunger event dates for 2012 are Monday, November 26 through Friday, November 30 at the Plymouth Meeting Metroplex. COFH is a free event with hundreds of people stopping by to see The Preston and Steve Show make food and monetary donations and have fun. Please try to attend.
For four weeks prior to this event pet food collection boxes will pepper Philadelphia and its surrounding counties collecting cat and dog food. As always we are looking for places- offices, schools, stores, etc to place collection boxes. Collection boxes, posters, etc. should be in place by about November 1. Donations will be collected and brought to Plymouth Meeting or to the shelter during the week-long event.
Photos of people and their donations can be taken and put on Philadoptables Facebook page and the Philadoptables website. If you guys are picking up the donations let’s try to do the same to recognize businesses and people. Donations will be distributed at the event to rescue groups and foster parents beginning Wednesday, November 28th. Families in need will be able to pick up food Saturday, December 1st at the shelter.
Every person who donates is rooting for Philly’s homeless animals and it is a great venue to find adopters, foster parents, and new volunteers.
We get by with a little help from our friends and we give Thanks where it is due! We could not have met our goal for the new Play Yard without the support of local businesses and our supporters! Please support these businesses and thank them for supporting Philadoptables and Philly’s homeless animals. The following businesses participated in helping turn a dream into a reality:

Thank you once again to our great friends at Natural Balance for their HUGE donation!
Over 9,000 pounds of delish high quality Alpha cat and dog food will prevent animals from entering an already overcrowded and underfunded shelter system. The food is also feeding foster dogs and cats currently living with families who could normally not afford to foster the animals.
Natural Balance’s ongoing commitment to helping Philadelphia’s homeless animals is sincerely appreciated. THANK YOU!!!
