A big Thank You to all who participated in our Feed A Dog Food Drive. 

Together, with our litter mates around the country, we were able to feed over 21,000 dogs in need!

For the second year in a row, in honor of National Food Drive month, participating Three Dog Bakery Stores are having a food drive competition! 

Each bakery has partnered with a community dog-related charity, and for the entire month of May you can donate to help feed local dogs in need.

Don’t live near a bakery?  You can still help.  Three Dog Bakery Headquarters is donating 100 pounds of treats to the Three Dog Bakery Store that gets the most new Facebook “Likes” in the month of May.  Those additional pounds of  treats will be donated to the winning Bakery’s charity. The bakery that comes in second with most new “Likes”  will get 50lbs of treats donated to their partner charity.  Starting May, 1, review the list of bakeries and charities,  then head over to Facebook and start liking those pages!
