Do you realize that you have given us almost 4 million dollars in donated cash and pet items to give to all 15 counties n Arizona.
The bad news is that we are cash poor and unless we raise money for gas and trucks, we cant deliver what we get, without YOUR help! Will you help us get resources to the rural communities before the end of this year?
The good news is that because we are SO good on obtaining in kind donations, we actually INCREASED our services locally and have added deeper support!
Would you consider adding more cash donations so that we can help Rural Arizona? Just note for operations on your donations.
OR Do you want to support our Vets and their service dogs and pets? We are offering medical support for their pets for 2016!
How about for people who wont leave pets behind in a disaster in Arizona, or need a place to stay for pets when their home burns up?
Or perhaps you might want to support our new programs just note what who or where you want YOUR donations to go!
We have created a Maricopa Citiens Corp for the people of the 68% of households with pets - and other special needs!(27% of Arizona is functionally disabled now and growing)
Or how about giving us a matching grant?

Many people will ask for help for their pets but not for themselves. Empty Bowl Pet Food, partners with groups, churches, food banks, schools and other organizations to help people coming to get food for their pets, to also get human help to get back on their feet.

NEW: since so many people have pets who are special needs: disabled, seniors, terminally/chronically ill, living alone or families with small children we have two new departments:
A) For individuals and families with special needs: America, RU Prepared, for making the decision to stay or evacuate becfore government aid arrives and
B) For Agencies, "Cooperative Collaboration Coalition to better support the community and to help agencies understand what they need to do in disasters!
All pet food/items are donated, but we are still averaging $1,500 a month in expenses in spite of the push to do even more. How many pets we help depends on your donations around Arizona.
Your dollars directly help stop pets from going hungry and being abandoned.
NOTE: YOUR DONATIONS MAY BE DESIGNATED TO OU ESTABLISHED PROGRAM OR COUNTY, in ARIZONA FOR USE.
