The Kindness Ranch: American Sanctuary for Research Animals was awarded a very generous donation from freekibble.com of 5000 meals, which amounts to 1075 pounds of Halo Spots Stew kibble, a all natural and holistic kibble for both dogs and cats. The donation was a result from the September issue of Dog Fancy Magazine, that highlighted a story about Kindness Ranch. The kibble was delivered by FedEx on October 18th, as the driver came down the driveway staff were standing by excitingly awaiting the delivery.
Freekibble.com was launched in 2008 and has helped feed over 10 million meals to homeless dogs and cats in shelters, rescues and food-banks across the country.
We unloaded the boxes of cat kibble first, as our 19 cats stood by eagerly awaiting, well actually it was more rambunctiously awaiting! They could smell the kibble through the bags and were all over us and the boxes before we could unpack! As we began to pull the bags from the boxes, the cats decided it was explore time, jumping into the boxes to check it out for themselves, since we apparently were not moving quickly enough for them. Animal Caretaker Mary Miles, opens a bag and begins to fill up bowls, and what a cat pile to get to the bowls! They couldn’t get to it fast enough and the feast began! Of course, the boxes then became toys and playtime of hide and seek games were next on their agenda.
The Kindness Ranch: American Sanctuary for Research Animals is a nonprofit tax-exempt organization under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code and is supported by donations from private individuals and grants, this donation from freekibble.com will tremendously offset our monthly food expenses at Kindness Ranch saving us approximately $1,800.00, and providing food for six to eight months (based upon number of animals at any given time).
