The Pongo Fund

The Pongo Fund is Oregon’s only full-time charity focused on fighting animal hunger. Because hungry people have hungry pets. We work tirelessly to reduce shelter populations and keep families together by providing emergency pet food assistance to anyone in honest need.

Because when people must choose what to cut from their grocery lists, pets often are among those that suffer most. Read More
