Here kitty kitty...pretty kitty...

Popular buy one, give one brand expands to cat food

DES MOINES, Iowa – The American Pet Products Association says there are more than 95 million owned cats in the United States, and cats now outpace dogs as the most popular family pet, with an average of 2.1 cats per household. Recognizing the importance of cats in daily life, BOGO Bowl is adding cat food to its line of premium, healthy buy one, give one pet food products to ensure all pets have healthy, quality food.

“We believe all pets need healthy food made with select simple, quality ingredients, whether their bowls are in cozy kitchens or caring shelters,” said Sara Henderson, Chief Foodie of BOGO Bowl. “We know pet lovers consider their animal companions family, and care about the health and wellbeing of animals in shelters and rescues. If they can provide high-quality, all natural nutrition to their own pet, and help an at-risk animal in the community at the same time, with no extra effort or cost, they’re all in.”

Chicken formula adult cat food is available October 18, with Kitten and Healthy Weight Adult cat formulas joining the lineup in early November. The company is also adding Grain Free Duck & Buffalo Meal formula to its list of super-premium dog foods in December.

Each purchase of BOGO Bowl food provides a matching bag of the same size and formula to a pet food pantry, shelter, rescue or Meals-On-Wheels companion program. The company has given more than 126,000 bowls to date and that number increases daily.

BOGO Bowl pet food uses select ingredients for healthy pets. Formulas contain no corn, wheat, soy, artificial flavors, colors, or preservatives. The first ingredient is always high-quality chicken, salmon or lamb meal and all ingredients except the New Zealand lamb are from the United States. To make it easy to do good both at home and in shelters, BOGO Bowl offers a personalized subscription service to ensure family pets never run out of food, and purchases over $44 include free shipping.

BOGO Bowl is available online at or through a growing list of select independent pet food retailers.

BOGO Bowl is simple, healthy nutrition


If dogs ordered their own food, what would they choose? We think they'd choose BOGO Bowl. Watch the commercial and decide for yourself!

BOGO Bowl's vision is simple:

  • We believe all dogs & cats need excellent nutrition, whether their bowls are in loving homes or caring shelters.
  • We use simple, high-quality ingredients with no artificial yuck & nothing we wouldn't eat ourselves.
  • We make getting food quick & easy. No worrying about empty bowls!
  • We believe together we can make a difference in the lives of pets all across the country.

We've given away more than 120,000 bowls so far and the number grows every day. That's something to be proud of.

When shelters, rescues & pet food pantries don't have to hunt for food, they can focus on other things: more adoption events, funding medical care & spay/neuters, improving facilities to help more animals, staff/volunteer and community education programs, and much much more. And high-quality food keeps the pets in good shape while they wait to find their perfect families.

The bottom line: Access to free, quality food = healthy pets = more adoptions & more families kept together.

BOGO Bowl was born of the idea that business can be successful while improving lives, and we do that with every single sale. We looked at companies like Newman's Own, Patagonia, Ben & Jerry's, and TOMS Shoes and realized if they could do it, so can we.

That's why half of the food we make is given away, and the food we give is the same high-quality product we sell. Together we can make lots of happy endings!
