Join Pet Food Warehouse for an in-store Wag It Forward fundraiser designed to assist Vermont's animal welfare nonprofit groups at this time when they need it the most, while staying safe and distant!

From September 1st to October 3rd, donate any whole dollar amount at checkout to the WIF fund.
Then shop at either of our locations Thursday, October 1st through Saturday, October 3rd, and PFW will donate 10¢ of every dollar spent to the WIF fund! All proceeds will be split evenly between participating local animal welfare groups! (Location information found here.)

Our goal this year is to donate what we were able to raise last year with the Western Wag It Forward Festival: a total of $15,900! This year's virtual Wag It Forward fundraiser has more beneficiaries than previous festivals so we are hoping to at least meet this amazing goal to help the hardworking groups that work tirelessly day in and out, through pandemics, to help Vermont's pets in need!

Can't make it into the stores? Donate online via GoFundMe:
