Give Shelter Pets “A Bowlful of Heart” This Holiday

A Bowlful of Heart collects donations for needy shelter pets throughout the holiday season.

We’re lucky to be connected with wonderful people who love to give, and we’re thrilled to be reviving A Bowlful of Heart pet food drive for the 2014 holiday season! We first teamed up with Alyson Clair of Clair Vintage Inspired in 2011, to work together with Portland businesses and collect pet food donations. Thanks to their help (and yours!), we’ve collected nearly 2000 pounds of pet food donations since 2011, to help the Newberg Animal Shelter!

This year, the Newberg Animal Shelter has a newly-built facility, and they need our help to fill it with necessary supplies for needy animals looking for forever homes! We have drop-off locations for all of your donations in the Portland area and in Newberg, and if you can’t make it to one of our locations, you can even arrange for a pickup.

Upswept is, once again, supporting this year’s drive with a custom designed flyer, signs, and a homepage with interactive map, to help get the word out. And, we can also accept your donations Tuesdays thru Fridays at Upswept HQ–just contact us before you stop by!

You can also keep up with A Bowlful of Heart on Facebook, where we’ll be shining a spotlight on all of the awesome local businesses who are helping to make our pet food drive happen this year. A Bowlful of Heart runs from November 28th through December 22nd, so when you’re out and about this holiday season, be sure to give a little something extra and help the animals!
