Donation Information

The Pongo Fund is Oregon’s Pet Food Bank. Because hungry people have hungry pets.

Our award-winning and volunteer driven public charity has provided more than 30 million meals for more than 207,000 hungry family pets, giving a chance to animals that might not otherwise have a chance and giving hope to families who have little else to be hopeful for. We have pioneered a new way to save lives, reduce shelter populations and end needless euthanasia by keeping family pets safe at home with their families and out of the shelters.

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 an award winning and volunteer driven 501(c)(3) non-profit public charity. Our tax identification number is 27-0646992.
