Giving Back 2014
We officially launched in October 2014 with our first customers at the Beaverton Farmers Market and the Portland Pet Exposition. Looking back on those first weeks, we can not thank our customers, partners and supporters for their valuable comments, insight and continued support. While we still are very much in the start-up phase of a small business, we have our products in several stores and online now too. In a short time (eight weeks!), we feel so grateful to be able to offer our nutritious meals and snacks to our customers.
At the end of 2014, despite not showing a net profit (I know it has only been 8 weeks), we have always felt a strong commitment to share our success with others in more of need. We are happy to say that we were able to donate food and treats to Meals on Wheels, Portland, Oregon and Saint Michael the Archangel Catholic Church Food Box Program, Portland, Oregon so that their clients could offer a special meal or treat for their pets during the holidays. In addition, we donated a percentage of proceeds of our sales to Portland Center Stage for their education programs from our booth sales at their wonderful Annual Holiday Bazaar. While these are small donations, we hope that the food & treats made a difference and we look forward to building upon our relationships with other non profit programs in our community.
Please note: At Portland Pet Food Company, we offer a variety of natural, healthy dog food toppings and natural, healthy dog treats, including gluten-free options. Our dog food toppings and treats are great for senior dogs and dogs who are picky eaters. Use our dog food toppers subscription service, and you’ll never have to worry about ordering!
