Join Shelter Bowl and Score a TD for Pets

Let the game begin!

No matter which team you are cheering for, we need your help rooting for shelter pets.

As adoptions slow, shelters nationwide desperately need food and medication. That’s why Greater Good Charities is sending nutritious meals and NexGard® PLUS (afoxolaner, moxidectin, and pyrantel chewable tablets) to pets in honor of the big game.

Boehringer Ingelheim and Hill’s Pet Nutrition will match every donation, dollar for dollar, up to $60,000.

Meet Ajax

Ajax is a sweet pup who came to the shelter needing training. He was rambunctious and would not use a leash. Thanks to nutritious pet food donations, the shelter redirected the costs that would have gone to food to training Ajax in preparation for his adoption.

Because of the extra care and attention Ajax received, he is now living in his forever home and goes for walks regularly with his new mom. He loves showing her the tricks he learned from the trainers.

Join the Team

One of the most significant expenses shelters face is feeding animals in their care.

They can divert funds to medical care and training by covering these costs. These resources are critical for preparing a pet for adoption.

Just $25 will deliver 500 belly-filling meals to shelter pets in need.

Donate now, and Boehringer Ingelheim and Hill’s Pet Nutrition will match every donation, dollar for dollar, up to $60,000.
