Customers purchase a bag of BOGO Bowl premium dog food, which is made in the United States, and a second bag is donated to a shelter of the customer’s choice at no additional cost.
Des Moines, Iowa (PRWEB) August 13, 2012
BOGO Bowl, a Des Moines, Iowa online-based company, is proud to announce the launch of their dog food company with the buy one, give one model. For every bag of BOGO Bowl dog food purchased, a matching bag will be given to a dog in need at the customer’s nearby animal shelter or food pantry.
Sara Henderson is the CEO and brainchild behind the company, which is poised to go national. BOGO Bowl sells seven types of dog food online and contributes food to shelter and pantry partners across the United States, with a buy one, give one concept. Customers purchase a bag of BOGO Bowl premium dog food, which is made in the United States, and a second bag is donated to an organization of the customer’s choice at no additional cost.
According to the Humane Society of the United States, animal shelters care for 6 to 8 million dogs and cats every year, of which approximately 3 to 4 million are euthanized. These shelters are in need of food and more efforts need to be taken to keep animals at home, which is where BOGO Bowl comes in. In larger markets, BOGO Bowl plans to partner with multiple shelters so customers will have the option to donate the food to a specific shelter or have the donation go to any shelter in need.
“I got the idea for the business while serving as the President and Programs Chair of The Pet Project Midwest,” Henderson said. “I saw the constant need for food, which helps shelters keep costs down so fewer animals are euthanized.”
BOGO Bowl premium dog food is produced in Ohio, with protein, fruit, and vegetables, and contains no artificial fillers, colors, or flavors. In addition, Henderson reports there is no corn, wheat, or soy used as filler. The starches in BOGO Bowl dog food are encapsulated to ensure less fermentation in the dog’s body, and hip healthy vitamins are included in most formulas.
All BOGO Bowl formulas meet AAFCO criteria for healthy, quality pet food. Formulas included Puppy, Maintenance, Healthy Weight, Lamb Meal and Rice, Chicken Meal and Rice, Salmon Meal and Rice, and No Grain.
BOGO Bowl is now available for purchase at BOGObowl.com or by calling 1-877-756-2646, with shipping included, as well as at select animal shelters across the country. The 20-pound bag is comparable to other similar-quality brands, with a price point ranging from $41.20 to $63.40 per bag.
