Thank you for your support! Because of YOU we met our goal to provide over 3 million meals to rescued animals across the country.
Over 3 million meals raised! Thank you!
We did it! The results are IN for National Feed a Rescue Pet Week! Thanks to our incredible donors and our partner The Animal Rescue Site, we beat our goal and raised enough to deliver more than 3 MILLION MEALS to pets in need. Our sponsors in this effort, Zesty Paws® and Solid Gold®, pet brands within H&H Group and supported by the H&H Foundation, pledged to generously match every donation up to 3 million meals. That means, with your help, we will provide more than 6 million meals to shelter pets!
One of the biggest expenses for shelters and rescue groups is feeding animals in their care. For many rescues, after food costs, little to nothing remains in the budget for medical treatment, vaccines and other adoption programs.
That’s where Greater Good Charities’ GOODS Program comes in! They ship donated food to rescue groups around the country to make sure their animals are fed, and that they have extra money in the budget to help pets in desperate need, like Gidget.
Gidget was chained up outside her whole life, living in dirt, mud and a grimy shack. In her three years of life, she was never once freed of the heavy chain and allowed to run and play. When her owners decided to surrender Gidget during a cold winter, her rescuers could not get the chain off. They ended up having to take it with her as it was embedded into her neck.
When Gidget arrived at the shelter, she was emaciated, anemic, suffering from roundworms and whipworms and had a bad infection in her mouth. She was also heartworm-positive and had fluid in her abdomen that might have been indicative of heart damage from the heartworms.
12-year-old Curley the cat has lived a long, hard life outdoors too. She was barely surviving on her own, and when she was rescued, it was clear she needed lots of love and care to regain her full health. Poor Curley was hungry and badly needed to be spayed and checked out by a veterinarian.
While Gidget and Curley received treatment for their various medical issues, they were able to return to healthy weights thanks to the high-quality, healthy food their shelter received through the GOODS Program.
Now, Gidget is in a loving foster home, and Curley will never have to worry about living outdoors again. Good medical care, GOODS food, and love was all these girls needed. Soon, they'll even be able to find the perfect forever families of their own!
Rescue pets like Gidget and Curley all over the country need your help. July is one of the busiest months of the year for many shelters and rescues, and more animals means more hungry bellies.

Zesty Paws® and Solid Gold®, the pet brands within H&H Group and supported by the H&H Foundation, will generously match every donation made during National Feed a Rescue Pet Week from July 23-29, meal for meal, up to 3 million pet meals.
