Donation Information

The Pongo Fund is an award winning and volunteer driven public charity, and the only program specifically designed to keep families together and reduce shelter populations by providing emergency supplies of dog and cat food for the family pets of anyone in honest need. Because hungry people have hungry pets. And those pets are family too.

We exist because of the generous support of companies and individuals who care about animals and the love and joy they bring to us all. If you are lucky enough to have a dog or cat for a friend and companion, then you understand how important animals are.

Your donation will help keep people and their pets together, preventing the hunger, suffering, abandonment, surrender and loss of the animals they love.

The Pongo Fund is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit public charity and donations are tax-deductible. Our tax identification number is 27-0646992.
