Buddy Bites co-founder (Chris) adopted two pups from Sai Kung shelter Catherine’s Puppies, so from the word go, giving back to shelters in Hong Kong was always at the core of the business. After discussing a number of ways to structure this, we landed on the model of donating 1kg of Buddy Bites, for every 2kg that was delivered to customers, as we had seen first-hand the cost and hassle that shelters can encounter through the stress of ensuring they have enough food each month. Since then, the response from customers has been overwhelming, and the mission of feeding all dog shelters in Hong Kong is becoming more feasible by the day.
我們對 Catherine、Jane 和團隊其他成員所做的工作非常欽佩。他們確保每隻被遺棄或流浪的幼犬都得到照顧，不僅恢復完全健康，而且離家很近盡可能，同時為他們找到一個永久的居住地。根據個人經驗，我們知道凱瑟琳和她的團隊不僅讓他們的狗安全和健康，而且還讓他們受到愛戴和照顧，這使得他們可以輕鬆融入新家庭。
When setting up Buddy Bites, we wanted to make sure we found a way to give back to the community and Catherine’s Puppies was the obvious place to start. As a charity, they rely on donations to cover costs of vet bills, upkeep of the shelter as well as the dog food required to feed 50+ hungry pups and adult dogs!
So, our pledge is that for every 2kgs of food we sell, we will be giving 1kg to Catherine’s Puppies. With your help, we will be working tirelessly to get to a point where Buddy Bites is able to provide free food for all sheltered dogs in Hong Kong!
