6th Annual Cats vs. Dogs Competition at BlueGrace Logistics

CONTEST UPDATE:

Friday, March 10 > More food has been delivered to both the Cats and the Dogs team piles. HELP US FEED THE ANIMALS.

About Cats Vs. Dogs

Each year, BlueGrace Logistics female (cats) and male (dogs) employees compete against each other to collect the most pet food in pounds. The food is then donated to the Humane Society of Tampa Bay to care for the animals in the no-kill shelter. The food not only feeds the animals that call the shelter home, but is also used for their food assistance program “Animeals.” The “Animeals” program partners with “Meals on Wheels” of Tampa to deliver free pet food once a month to homebound and elderly residents on a fixed income in Hillsborough County. This year, BlueGrace Regional Offices will also participate in a “Cats vs Dogs” charitable drive. 

The 6th Annual Competition

Perhaps the biggest competition of the year, the rivalry grows stronger & the food collection gets bigger every year.

BlueGrace HQ collected over 52,000 lbs. of pet food in 2015

BlueGrace collected over 52,000 lbs. of pet food in 2015, enough to feed our furry friends at Humane Society Tampa Bay & assist in their “Animeals” Community program for an entire year!

“Team Cats” has been the reigning champions for 3 years in a row, leaving “Team Dogs” on a serious mission.

Will they be all bark and no bite this year? Stay tuned! meow, woof.

BlueGrace Regional Offices Get Involved

BlueGrace Chicago

We care about our communities around us. Each year we make an effort to collect donations for the Animal Rescue Foundation of Illinois. They are a  non-profit, no-kill humane society. Their  volunteers are dedicated to rescuing, fostering, and caring for homeless dogs and cats while finding them homes they can be loved in forever. We are conducting a food drive but we realize not everyone can drive to our office to help. This is the perfect place to contribute and we greatly appreciate it. If you find it in your heart, please spread the word for this beautiful cause. Check out our GoFundMe page here to help the BlueGrace Chicago Office.

BlueGrace Baltimore

This GoFundMe supports BlueGrace Baltimore in their effort to raise funds to purchase pet food and supplies for the Humane Society of Harford County. The Humane Society of Harford County does not receive funding from the Humane Society of the United States and relies heavily on charitable donations. In the past, BlueGrace Baltimore has been able to collect more than 10,000lbs of pet food for the Harford County Humane Society!

Your monetary donations will help our BlueGrace Baltimore office purchase larger quantities of supplies and pet food. Direct donations of pet food and supplies can be dropped off between 8am and 5pm at BlueGrace Logistics – Baltimore.

BlueGrace Boston

BG Boston is working with the MSPCA-Angell on raising money, food, toys, and basic pet supplies. The mission of the MSPCA-Angell is to protect animals, relieve their suffering, advance their health and welfare, prevent cruelty, and work for a just and compassionate society.

Monday, February 13th until the end of March, BG Boston will be holding a Food/Toy Drive for the many shelter animals in both the Boston and Methuen MSPCA Angell adoption centers who were left for dead, abandoned and finally rescued by the amazing team of MSPCA volunteers.

“They are the second oldest humane society in the U.S. Their mission is to protect animals, relieve their suffering, advance their health and welfare, prevent cruelty, and work for a just and compassionate society.” said Kristiana Lorgeree.
