Furry Friends Food Relief Program Offers 2014 Recap

by ECT

“I hate to say I’m running out of both foods for Buddy/Nikki. (Dog and Cat Food)

You are there rescuer!, And Mine!!!! Otherwise I wouldn’t be able to keep the little Kritter’s, But I thank You that I can.….Because of all your help!”

If our program helped to keep 1 animal out of the shelters than we feel it was a success. This is just one note that we got from one of our amazing food program participants. Who knows how many others we were able to keep into home just because we were able to supply them with food.

Our start up vaccine clinics from September-November vaccinated totals:

  • 544 vaccinated animals from Parvo and Rabies (thanks to the help from Paw Fund)
  • 117+ micro chipped animals to keep them out of the shelters and find their way home faster
  • 300+ families received food for their animals and kept them in their homes and out of shelters, 445 dogs and 220 cats received food (over 3,000 lbs)
  • 20 dog were fixed through the FFFR program, which has prevented 600 puppies. (Thanks to the help from ARF)

We can’t thank everyone and organizations enough who has helped make this first year so successful. We look forward to an amazing 2015!!

Furry Friends Food Relief Program was started in hopes to help stop the over population of animals in the shelters.  In helping owners at the beginning, when they may feel that they need to surrender their furry friend, at the sense of helplessness, not knowing what resources are out there, and education.

We want pet owners to know that there is help out there and hope that we can do all that we can to help keep their loved animals out of the shelters.  We know that there sometimes isn’t another alternative, we are hoping to help those in need and give them a sense of relief and hope.

We assist struggling families and the homeless in the Contra Costa County with dog and cat food. Often times we find that those families need a bit more for their Furry Friend(s). They often need new bedding, leashes, collars, clothing ect.

Sometimes they may be behind in their shots and/or need to be spayed or neutered. We try to offer multiple services to these families so that they don’t feel that they need to give up their loved one to the shelter.

Although at this time we will not be offering spay/neuter programs, we do provide information about low income options, especially for pit bulls and chihuahuas which are so readily available and accessible in the east bay.

We also provide information and education on proper basic medical care such as vaccinations, microchips, and where low cost options exist near by.
