Doing good isn’t limited to other people. With the current economic mess we’re in these days, one of the biggest sufferers are the pets. People that lose their jobs can’t afford to keep their pet or lose their house and have no place to keep their pet. Many of these pets end up being abandoned and find themselves in local animal shelters.
You can help feed some of these dogs by visiting the site Free Kibble where you are given a daily question. It doesn’t matter if you answer the question correctly or not, you will donate 10 pieces of kibble to a animal shelter just by trying to answer. They have already donated over 66 million pieces of kibble, but the shelters could always use more and they have sponsors that are willing to donate as much as everyone can generate.
Simply follow the link to Free Kibble and try answering the question. If you like the idea, bookmark the page so you can go back and help out on a daily basis and pass it on to your friends so more people can help out. When you’re finished, come back here and leave your thoughts on the website, the issue of pets being abandoned in hard economic times or pets in general. Each comment will add another 10 cents toward a microloan.

Took the quiz – got it wrong, but still donated 10 pieces of kibble. I’ve added it to my favorites. The first time I have ever seen this site although I have seen others similar to it.
I did it for the dogs that need homes. I’ll do it again on a regular basis.
I loved the idea, bookmarked it directly.
Great idea this blog
You can also Feed Cats as well.
I love it! I’m bookmarking it. Gosh the little dog graphics are cute!
The design is cute enough to make me come back, but not so horrible as to qualify as HKH-level. Will visit it again and give more kibble 🙂
i took the quiz and donated 10 pieces of kibble to the doggies and 10 to the kitties! i also bookmarked this so i take the quiz every day.
you can also donate ‘bowls of food’ to shelter animals here
77.8 millions bowls of food were donated in 2008
As someone already beat me to saying, you can feed cats too: //www.freekibblekat.com/
this is an awesome site and I live the idea of free kibble. thanks for the links.
ps, I just showed the free kibble site to my little sister and I think I got her hooked on it too so that should be a big help to the animal kingdom. Thanks again for the links to the site and great job with this blog.
This is great. I wrote about it on my site today and shared it in my Google reader.
What a wonderful way to start the new year!
i dont’ do rss feeds, but i wanted to help, so i wrote a comment, yay! and i got all the questions wrong too, but it still helped the puppies.
Fed the dogs, fed the cats, signed up for RSS, and planning to link you when I next post.
I love the idea! It’s nice to know that you can make a difference just by having internet access and spending a few seconds.
I got the answer correct today. I also put the links on my cats catster page so friends and I can remember to click everyday.
Clicked for both kits and pups. I will be clicking everyday.
What a neat idea! We aded both the cat & dog kibble site to our faves & will click every day too!
Excellent! I’m glad to see someone already answered my question and gave a pointer to the cat-related site. (Nothing against dogs, but I do have 4 cats.)
I have the links to the dog and cat kibble sites on my blog and on my Catster pages. Additionally, you can feed animals by clicking at the Animal Rescue site:
I click every day on all three, and I enjoy the trivia questions!
Okie, now can you tell me where I can get those stupid converse shoes?
I saw a story the other day about all of the pets being abandoned due to the economy and it’s just awful! I got my dog from a shelter and he’s the best little guy ever. I’m glad this site is try to help those pets in need, though I wish you could answer more than one question a day! I’d spend all my free time at work on that site if I could!
That reminds me of the free rice vocabulary site, though limiting it to one question per day reduces the funness factor a bit (and remembering to visit daily is harder). Still very cute.
I have to say, this site is the perfect complement to Hello Kitty Hell. I often go to HKH for fabulous geekiness of it, which is a balm to my soul, but this site is a different kind of fun. I fed dogs and cats today, and I will spread the word to my cat-adoring friends. And the dog-adoring ones. So this is also a soul balm, but some sweet people get fed out of the deal (other than my soul).
I have been doing this for some time now and can I recommend another site?
They are stricter, but will potentially donate more than 10 pieces of kibble a day. Apparently they are also a social service, but you just keep saying not at this time when their ad pops up. It’s still fun to see what you know in the way of trivia, as well as helping animals. There is an option to do this for dogs. If I’m not mistaken, though, you have to choose one or the other.
I’m glad that people do care about animals.
I’m a sucker for a stray, or injured animal.
The hamster I have now is actually the $200 hammi, because when I bought her the pet shop had neglected her and she had a big festering infection on her leg… The vets office was wonderful, and she made it. That little Angel is quite the trooper.
I just wish I could afford to do that all the time. D:
This is a great idea! It’s not even just economically hard times that cause people to abandon their animals, either. I used to work for a veterinarian and we had animals dropped off and tied up outside overnight all the time. People buy animals without thinking, like they are toys or accessories, without realizing that they are going to be responsible for a LIFE. Then when the kids get tired of the dog because it’s not a cute puppy anymore and it digs and pees all over, and jumps and mouths because nobody has any time to spend to train it properly, they just dump it like it’s yesterday’s newspaper, without a thought or a care in the world to who’s going to take care of it or how. Sadly, so many wonderful animals are put down because shelters don’t have the resources to care for them all. This website is a great thing, shelters can use all the help they can get. If anyone has the time, every shelter I know always welcomes volunteers to come down and spend some time with the animals to get them more socialized and exercised. Think about it!
Thanks for promoting the Free Kibble site! I have signed up for a daily reminder so I don’t forget to go back to give more.
My younger cat was rescued from the local shelter. She was estimated at 1 1/2 years old when we got her and was scheduled for euthanasia because she had issues with her foster family’s other animals and nobody was willing to take a chance on her. My husband saw her when he was there on business and noticed she matched our other cat (he is a somewhat unusual solid color). He got to know her and brought the rest of the family in to meet her. Once we met her, we knew she was our cat. This was almost 2 years ago and she’s been part of the family ever since.
Unfortunately, there is a serious overpopulation of stray and abandoned cats in our town. Our shelter is struggling to keep up with them. I strongly encourage anyone who’s looking for a pet to visit their local shelter and consider an adult rescue.
I <3 dogs! I’m bookmarking the site now.
This was fun. The cat one was fun as well! Thanks for sharing!
I help Sighthound Rescue through a few different organizations. Thank you for the link, I will visit right away.
