Earn Free Kibble For Shelter Dogs

The original post is here.  

Have you heard about  Freekibble and its companion site,Freekibblekat?  They were founded three years ago by Mimi Ausland who was 11 years old at the time.

Mimi started volunteering at her local shelter and realized that the organization and others like it often had trouble stocking enough food to feed the animals in their care.  She and her parents launched the websites, which allow visitors to help by answering trivia questions about dogs and animals. Each day that a visitor clicks on a trivia question, the site donates 10 pieces of kibble to a needy shelter — even if the site visitor gets the answer wrong.


Are you more of a cat person?  No problem, you can help shelter cats too by clicking this link!

Be sure to tell your friends.  If you have a website then please consider placing one of the Freekibble banners on it.  Food is such a basic necessity and this is a way to help provide healthy food to hungry dogs and cats across the United States.

In the last year, these sites have donated more than 5 million meals to more than 125 animal shelters across the country.  To date more than 53,000 visitors have answered trivia questions every day at Freekibble and another 47,000 have visited Freekibblekat with588,779, 970 pieces of kibble donated since 2008.

There is also a companion site called Freekibblekids, which inspires younger children to help animals. Mimi also founded the Freekibble Foundation, which helps fund further food donations to shelters.

Just this past June a semi-truck filled with 40,000 pounds of dog and cat food delivered food to 15 animals shelters from Tennessee to Utah.  All of the food donated through the site is provided by Halo, Purely for Pets, a company co-owned by talk show host Ellen DeGeneres.

Be a helping paw!  Click the banner, play the trivia game and feed a shelter dog today!
