Mr. Chewy Donates 6,000 lbs of Pet Food to 8 Awesome Rescues & Shelters
One of the things we enjoy the most at MrChewy.com is our Shelter & Rescue Network, where we partner with non-profit, no-kill rescues throughout the country that work so hard to take care of animals in need. We are also heavily involved in our local community and donate pet food to nearby non-profit, no-kill shelters. If there’s one thing we know, it’s pet food, and we love delivering food to help keep those furry bellies full.
Last week, we donated over 6,000 pounds of dog food, cat food, and cat litter to 8 incredible rescue groups in South Florida. Be sure to check out each of these great rescues.
- Allen Babcock Dog & Cat Rescue
This great group rescues injured, abandoned, or abused animals, and work solely through foster homes. Right now they have 30 dogs and puppies, and go through a bag of food every day. Their main focus is on caring for animals than many consider to be “unadoptable”, and who are at most risk of being euthanized at local animal shelters.

- Adopt A Cat Foundation
The Adopt A Cat foundation is no stranger to Palm Beach County. They’ve been rescuing abandoned and abused cats and kittens from the streets since Inga Hanley founded the group over 25 years ago. Along with their “foster-care guardians,” they house over 200 homeless, abandoned, ill, and injured felines. Their trap, spay/neuter, and release program helps reduce overpopulation. Check out the Adopt A Cat Thrift Store… every purchase made helps fund the shelter.

- Adopt A Dog Foundation
Forget Animal Planet’s show Animal Hoarding. Let’s talk “Officer Friendly”. Retired police officer Patty Pereira started Adopt A Dog Foundation in January 2011, after years serving in law enforcement. As a child living in Mexico City, she and her friends would find ways to help feed the many stray dogs that roamed the streets, sometimes even sneaking animals home and hiding them in her bedroom. That passion for animals led teenaged Patty to become a veterinary technician before settling into a career in law enforcement. Now, retired, she uses her problem-solving skills to follow her dream of rescuing dogs. “Saving just one dog won’t change the world, but it surely will change the world for that one dog.”

- Big Dog Ranch Rescue
There’s no shortage of pups at this Wellington, FL rescue. They are housing over 200 dogs on their 23-acre site and in area foster homes. Their mission is to “provide shelter, care, and affection to homeless and unwanted dogs of all breeds, and to adopt them out to loving human companions.” They even recently rescued 3 dogs from a shelter in Starke, FL, after tropical storm Debby flooded it with three feet of water.

- Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League
Over 10,000 cats and dogs make their way through this Palm Beach County humane society every year. The good folks at Peggy Adams have provided shelter to lost, homeless, and unwanted animals, administered affordable medical services to companion animals, and advocated for animal welfare and community involvement since 1925. They also offer resources on behavior and training, pet loss support, disaster preparedness, and they even have a pet food bank through Kibblez of Love. You can support them by shopping at the Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League Thrift Store and Books For A Buck bookstore.

- Kibblez of Love
What’s not to love about this all-star non-profit? Kibblez of Love helps struggling Palm Beach and Broward County families feed their four-legged family members. They also offer families referrals for low-cost vet care and sponsor spay/neuter surgeries for their pets (all pets receiving food must be spayed or neutered). Kibblez of Love distributed close to 3,800 pounds of food last month alone. That translates to caring for 387 pets in need of food, litter, and medical supplies. Kibblez of Love understands the animal-to-human bond, and believes that it is something that should not be broken or torn apart due to financial setbacks.

- A Second Chance Puppies and Kittens Rescue
Second Chance is the largest foster-based animal rescue group in Palm Beach County. Right now, they have 147 dogs, and 88 cats in foster homes. With all of those mouths to feed, it’s no wonder they go through approximately 350 pounds of food per week! From the board of directors to their foster parents and event staff, they are 100% volunteer based and have saved over 3,300 animals since they started in 2007.

- Warm Hearts Pet Rescue
This Boynton Beach rescue currently houses 20 dogs and 8 cats in their shelter and has another 10 dogs placed in loving foster homes. Each of the animals is either an owner-surrendered pet from a family that could no longer provide care, or a rescue from a high-kill shelter.
