4 Easy Ways to Help Pets and Animals
Twelve-year-old Mimi Ausland loves animals. She wanted to find a way to feed abandoned dogs at her local Humane Society in Oregon. So she came up with an idea with her mom and dad: a dog trivia game on a website. What if every time a person played, ad revenue was generated to buy free kibble for needy dogs?
It worked. Local businesses signed on to help, and FreeKibble.com was born. Play every day. Whether your answer is right or wrong, free food will be donated to abandoned animals at the Humane Society of Central Oregon. Mimi and her parents hope to grow the site so they'll be able to provide kibble to animal shelters in other places, too. There are tens of thousands of hungry dogs in shelters across the United States, so Mimi is busy. She's talking to classes, participating in events with the Humane Society, and doing other community projects to encourage people to help animals. After seeing how popular FreeKibble.com became, Mimi also launched the Meow Cat Trivia game at FreeKibbleKat.com so she can feed abandoned cats too.
"I absolutely love delivering the food to the Humane Society! Before our first delivery, FreeKibble.com was just a website with virtual kibble. But when we went out to deliver food for the first time, I got to put the bags of kibble in the storage room, feed the dogs, and play with them. I then realized that by feeding the dogs here and other places, the shelters can use that money to get the animals more toys, cat food, litter boxes, leashes, food bowls, and more. So after that day of delivering food to hungry dogs, FreeKibble.com was real!" -- Mimi
