|So, how will the food be distributed? I didn't know if you (Oz) had ideas for this already?
I was thinking, maybe it would be a good idea to get some kind of partnership with, or start a sub-program of, homeless shelters? Where homeless people go to get food and to escape the weather?
That way, if they come in with their dog, the dog can have food tailored especially for it, instead of getting scraps. (Sorry if this is what you already had in mind, by the way!)
This can give us for-sure destinations for the food, plus it will be considered a "real" organization for dog food companies if it is a sub-program in a homeless shelter.
We can even ask around cities or ask them to do surveys, to see how many "street dogs" there really are. This way we can get the proper amounts of food out to each city, instead of too much in one city and too little in the next.
I've been doing a lot of thinking, if you couldn't tell. I think this is a great cause.
