BlueGrace Logistics will hold its 4th Annual Cats vs. Dogs Competition on Friday, February 28th. The Cat’s (Ladies) and Dog’s (Men) employees of BlueGrace, will compete against each other to see who can donate the most food to the Humane Society of Tampa Bay by Friday at 12pm. The efforts of BlueGrace Logistics are expected to raise approximately 35,000 pounds of pet food; surpassing the 20-thousand pounds raised in 2013 which cared for their animals for nearly 6 months. The Cats vs. Dogs competition is said to be one of the largest pet food drives in the United States.
Through this pet food drive, BlueGrace will literally be saving pets from going to shelters or starving because their owners can’t afford to feed them. The pet food donated will not only go to feed the animals that call the Humane Society of Tampa Bay home, but will also go toward their food assistance programs Casper’s Cupboard and Animeals.
Casper’s Cupboard help hundreds of families keep their pets when they’re going through financial hardship by allowing citizens to come to the shelter Tuesday-Sunday to pick up pet food for their animals at no cost.
The Animeals program partners with Meals on Wheels of Tampa to deliver free pet food once a month to homebound and elderly residents on a fixed income in Hillsborough County. In 2013, 310,530 pounds of free pet food were delivered to homebound residents to help feed their pets and allow them to keep their furry friends.
