we raised $300.00 in cash and checks for our dog food drive!
This was enough to purchase 6 pallets of dog food from the Rescue Bank, www.RescueBank.org, a National Pet Food Distribution Program that distributes pet
food to approved Rescue Organizations, Community Animal Shelters, Community
Service Organizations, Dog / Cat Sanctuaries, Feral Cat Related Organizations
and Disaster Relief / Emergency Aid (Animal Welfare).
The local group is the Animal Rescue Resource Foundation (ARRF) http://www.arrf.cc/ (A 501(c) 3 Non-profit organization)
All Rescue groups are prequalified so the food goes where it’s needed.
While the food is donated from pet food manufacturers, the transportation of the product is not. Rescue Bank arranges for the trucking (semi sized loads) to pick up the food available from the companies donating the product and delivers it to local distribution affiliates for re-distribution to the qualifying organizations. These qualifying organizations pay a handling fee to help offset the cost of trucking.
Each $50 SoCal Surf Dog donation helped buy a pallet of dog food.
This month, each pallet included approximately 1000 lbs of ‘Nutro Ultra’ dog food valued at over $1,900 retail.
On Thursday, December 15, 2011, the SoCal Surf Dogs were please to help 3 groups
here in Southern California with the purchase of one pallet for each group.
this organization as a SoCal Surf Dog Cause to support.
We also want to thank Barbara Henderson for her work with this awesome
group of volunteers. She helps organize the pick up and deliveries and also made
a special trip to pick up the SoCal banners for the photos.
Big Woof Woof to all the SoCal Surf Dogs members who generously donated to this cause!
Let’s keep this going!!! Please help by donating what ever you can. It doesn’t take much! I’ll take cash and/or checks!

We will be donating the funds for 3 more pallets to other deserving groups here in Sothern California in January.
Watch our 'Newsflash' and future 'Newsletters' for who the recipients are of the next 3 pallets.
