Auburn Gresham Pet Food "Pop Up" Dished Up 1st Compassion in Action Award by Anti-Cruelty Society!

The Greater Auburn Gresham Development Corporation's new partnership efforts with the Anti-Cruelty Society has led us to be the recipient of their inaugural Compassion in Action Award! 

As of October 12, 2020, the Pop-Up Pet Food Pantry in April of 2020, the Error! Hyperlink reference not valid. provided 453,725 pet meals to communities that have been drastically impacted by COVID-19, since the launch of the program in April 2020. They said, "We couldn’t do it without the generous support of our partners! Together, we’re able to make a difference one bag of pet food at a time!" This is also thanks to Hill's Pet Nutrition and PetSmart Charites.

Thank you to the Auburn Gresham for allowing GAGDC and our generous partners, to serve the Auburn Gresham community! We could not have gotten this accolade without you bringing your furry friends to the Pet Food "Pop Up" last September!

Please take a moment and watch a short video, where GAGDC CEO, Carlos A. Nelson and Tanya Nelson, share our thanks to the Anti-Cruelty Society for this pleasant and welcomed surprise.
