If you’re like me, then animals hold a special place in your heart. We hear about animals being mistreated, abused, or placed in shelters not knowing what their future will hold. What if I told you that you could help animals in need in your community simply by purchasing your cat or dog food?
I present to you Bogo Bowl! Sara Henderson and a few of her friends in Des Moines, Iowa founded Bogo Bowl in 2009. The story behind Bogo Bowl is one for the books. She initially founded The Pet Project Midwest, which is an organization to help animals find homes, stay with their loved ones, and remain out of shelters. The Pet Project has two proactive programs, which are The Pet Pantry and Iowa Pet Alert. The Pet Pantry is a program designed to provide pet food and supplies assistance to families undergoing financial difficulties. The Pet Project Midwest believes that people should never have to give up their pets just because they are struggling financially. The Iowa Pet Alert is an emergency program founded to reunite pets with their families through the display of social media messages.
Throughout this journey, Sara realized that she was having difficulty in getting donations for a pet pantry. She also encountered insufficient pet food to distribute to all the shelters in the area. So she started her own pet pantry business — Bogo Bowl, a buy one, give one business idea is an exemplary business model. The idea behind Bogo Bowl is that anyone can buy pet food from their local pet stores, but what if for every time you bought your cat or dog food, Bogo Bowl would also donate food to another cat or dog in need? Sara was able to partner up with Ohio Pet Foods and since then has been serving healthy and nutritious meals to our furry friends all around the country.
Bogo Bowl has a wide variety of natural, nutritious, and healthy food for your puppy, dog, cat, and/or kitten. There are different formulas depending on the age of your pet or your personal preference. Nutrition is extremely important to Bogo Bowl. The formulas are infused with all protein of your choice, such as natural chicken, lamb, salmon, grain-free chicken, grain-free duck. Additionally, they are infused with healthy fruits and vegetables, and do not carry any corn, soy, wheat, or artificial ingredients.
So while Bogo Bowl is guaranteeing an all-natural healthy meal for your pet, they can rest assure you that your business is also helping them feed another animal with the same meal. We all know how important it is to keep our pets healthy. After all, it helps keep the veterinarian away and we all know how expensive they can be.
