The organization was established in 2009 here in Portland in memory of Pongo, an almost 19-year-old dog (pictured above). It is a Pet Food Bank for Oregon who saves dogs and cats from ending up in shelters when their families cannot afford to feed them. They provide emergency assistance to anyone in honest need in order to help reduce shelter populations and keep people and their pets together. To date the group has provided more than three million meals to animals.
GROW, the Advantis Community Fund, is awarding $50,000 to non-profit organizations for projects that make a difference in our local community. Several grants up to $10,000 each will be awarded. Vote for The Pongo Fund below:
