Feed Me Friday
Every month we are feeding 600+ dogs both inside and outside of the shelter. It just isn’t feasible for us to be able to feed this amount of dogs with commercially available dog food so we have our own ‘soup’ mix made up of rice, chicken, chickpeas, split peas, red lentils and eggs and a couple of times a week we also add sardines in oil. On top of this we do ship commercial dog food out to the shelter every month so we do add some of this to the mix as well.
The cost of feeding so many dogs comes in at around £2400 or $3000 a month just for the staple ‘soup’ mix and then we spend £1.50 per kilogram of commercially made dog food that we ship to the shelter, we only pay for the shipping as the commercially made dog food is all donated.
This all works out at around £3.93 or $5 per dog per month to feed the basic soup diet.
Please consider a donation today to help us be able to provide food for the ever growing number of dogs we are taking care of
