FOOD: The Pongo Fund always welcomes donation of quality dog and cat food. And we use a lot of it, providing millions of meals each year to help keep hungry family pets well fed when their own families are temporarily unable to do so. And unlike any other pet food bank in America, we use only high-quality food because we strongly believe the animals deserve that. That means we avoid dog or cat foods containing corn or other common fillers. Some of our preferred brands include Canidae, Nulo, Petcurean, Weruva, Lotus, K9 Naturals, Taste of the Wild, Zignature, Stella & Chewy’s, Pinnacle, Earthborn and we also love receiving Costco brands Nature’s Domain and Kirkland Select. Our veterinary team also uses all veterinary prescription diets and veterinary medications. 

Please note that for health and safety, food donated to The Pongo Fund must be unopened and unexpired and preferably not contain corn, soy or wheat. Also, please do not ship donations to our street address as we are not always onsite to receive them. To schedule shipment, please contact us via phone or email. 

KENNELS, TOYS, BOWLS, ETC: We can use hygienically clean kennels, new and unused toys, metal food bowls and certain other supplies.

GIFT CARDS: We welcome gift cards to Costco, Chewy, Petsmart, Fred Meyer and others, and also gas cards. We do not use Petco gift cards.

WE CANNOT USE fresh, frozen or refrigerated food, and at this time we are not in need of collars, harnesses, leashes, towels or blankets.

MEDICATION: We can use almost all prescription medications both open and unopened. But we cannot use opened medications that are liquid or in tubes.

If you have questions about donations, please contact us via phone or email.
