BoGo Bowl: Pet Food that Feeds Needy Animals

first_img It’s Time to Ditch Your Sleeping Bag for a Versatile, Lightweight Camping Quilt What if when you bought your dog (or cat) a bag of food and you were somehow able to also feed vulnerable, hungry animals at the same time? Thanks to Sara Henderson and Susan Hollar, it’s the world we get to live in. For every bag of pet food you purchase from their company, BoGo Bowl, they give a bag to shelters or even private homes in need.BoGo Bowl is top-tier, quality dog (and now cat!) food made without fillers or artificial ingredients. We’re talking chicken protein, vegetables, fruits, and vitamins, like omegas and glucosamine. There are a variety of options, ranging from puppy food to adult dog food, offering different meats, like chicken, lamb, and salmon. Want grain free? They’ve got it! The website has given them four stars, and will walk you through all of BoGo’s ingredients. According to, unlike some other major pet food suppliers, as of the date of publication, BoGo Bowl has had zero recalls and no quality issues.It’s slightly pricier than the dog food you just pick up at the store, but you’re caring for more animals than just your own when you buy BoGo. They do offer samples if you’d like your furry friends to try it before committing to the big bags. An added bonus, they offer wildly convenient, optional subscription service so you’ll never run out or have to lug the bag home from the store.Ironically, it was cruelty that gave rise to BoGo Bowl. Before they met, Henderson and Hollar adopted two special needs dogs who had been the victims of unfathomable abuse: Henderson adopted Chance, who had been tied to an active railroad track, but managed to survive, and Hollar has Duke, who was shot and left for dead.Henderson and Hollar connected in 2011, bonding over their love of animals and the rewards and difficulties of caring for dogs like Chance and Duke. While both had always wanted to find a way to make a difference, it wasn’t until they teamed up, inspired by their beloved dogs, that BoGo Bowl was born.Animal shelters do incredible work, often without sufficient resources. Most shelters have wish lists for all the items they need: towels, carriers, toys, most importantly, food. You can find the list of current shelters and organizations that benefit from BoGo Bowl here, broken down by state. Perhaps the best part of BoGo Bowl is that you can add a shelter or organization close to your heart (perhaps the shelter you rescued your best friend from?) and they will reach out to include them in the program.

Annan to name Canadian Justice Louise Arbour as top UN human rights

The General Assembly is expected to act shortly on Secretary-General Kofi Annan’s intention to appoint Ms. Arbour to a four-year term heading the Geneva-based UN human rights office, according to a UN spokesman. Spokesman Fred Eckhard said that if approved, she would be expected to retire from Canada’s Supreme Court, where she has been working since 1999, to take up her new assignment. Ms. Arbour was the Chief Prosecutor of the UN International Criminal Tribunals for the former Yugoslavia and for Rwanda from October, 1996 to September, 1999 – a period of intense activity for both courts. The 57-year old Justice was admitted to the Quebec Bar in 1971 and the Bar of Ontario in 1977. She served for 13 years as Associate Professor of Law and later Associate Dean at Osgoode Hall Law School at York University. Fluent in both English and French, she became a member of the bench in December 1987, first as a trial judge on the Supreme Court of Ontario and, in 1990, at the Ontario Court of Appeal. In April 1995, she was chosen to lead an official investigation into the operation of the correctional service of Canada, based on allegations by female inmates at a women’s prison in Kingston (Ontario). Until her appointment to the bench, she served as vice-president of the Canadian Civil Liberties Association. Throughout her career, Justice Arbour has published extensively, in both English and French, in the fields of criminal procedure, human rights, civil liberties and gender issues. The General Assembly established the post of UN High Commissioner for Human Rights in December, 1993, with a wide-ranging mandate to oversee the world body’s complex and multifaceted activities in that field. The first person to hold the post was José Ayala Lasso, a former Foreign Minister from Ecuador, who was succeeded by Mary Robinson, the former President of Ireland. Mr. Vieira de Mello assumed the job on 12 September 2002 before being asked to take what was supposed to be a temporary leave to serve as UN envoy to Iraq, where he was killed in a terrorist bombing that also took the lives of 21 others. read more
