The total for this year's food drive was 902 pounds net weight of dog and cat food.  We do not have a break down between dog and cat food.  We did not keep records of how much each participating business generated for the food drive but the biggest sources of donations were Safeway, Super Bear, and Southeast Vet.


Thank you, Juneau, for your generous support of the first pet food drive for pets and their families in need.  The community response was amazing - 1026 pounds of food was collected for cats and dogs during the 3-day pet food drive in December.  Grateful Dogs of Juneau conducted the pet food drive to benefit the Southeast Alaska Food Bank and the patrons of the food bank who need food for their pets.   Pam Nelson initiated and organized the pet food drive on behalf of the Grateful Dogs of Juneau.
          Grateful Dogs of Juneau wishes to thank the following businesses for their support of the pet food drive: Rainbow Foods, A&P Foodland, the Pet Nanny, Walmart, Safeway, Wee Fishie Shoppe, Super Bear Supermarket, and Canines Unlimited.  The donations by the patrons of the Costco Warehouse were greatly appreciated.  Also, thanks go to Jeff Brown and KTOO radio for alerting the community that the pet food drive was underway.
