How PetFoodDude started

I was not always the PetFoodDude, but I have always been an animal lover and had pets of my own. I am the guy that cannot pass a friendly dog or cat without greeting it, sharing a treat, or offering some pets. During the the COVID pandemic, I became concerned about pet owners who were out of work, or unable to get to the store. If people were struggling, so were their animal friends. Opportunity knocked when I saw someone on Facebook Marketplace selling cases of wet cat food for a low price of $10 for twenty-four cans. I thought, “What if I bought ten cases and then advertised on an Oakdale webpage that I have cat food to donate to low-income seniors having a hard time making ends meet?” That plan lasted for about two months when one of my donors asked if I considered providing dog food as well. The very next day, I began to research where I could find both dog and cat food at discount prices. One of my cat food clients knew an amazing local resident with a small business who provided a generous discount on torn bags of dog food. Even the local branch of a national chain, Tractor Supply, agreed to offer a similar deal. I switched from wet food to dry, which made distribution easier. With my out-of-pocket costs lowered, and my process streamlined, I knew that I had to continue helping my community and its four-legged residents. Word spread quickly and my donations grew, allowing me to make deliveries every two weeks to over thirty-five pet owners. Now over one hundred animals are being fed by the PetFoodDude with generous local support!
