RESOLUTION NO. 100505

 

Honoring the Three Dog Bakery for being an outstanding small business in Kansas City and on its expanded efforts to support dogs in need through the re-launch of the Three Dog Bakery Foundation.

 

WHEREAS, for nearly 20 years the Three Dog Bakery started by Mark Beckloff and Dan Dye has carried forward its mission of bringing delicious, all-natural, oven-baked treats and new foods to dogs around the world; and

 

WHEREAS, Three Dog Bakery proudly supports Troy Yocum and Emmie the Wonderdog as they hike across America for “Hike For Our Heroes” to raise money for military families by supplying all of the food and treats for Emmie on their journey; and

 

WHEREAS, the Three Dog Bakery Foundation was created out of the love and desire for all dogs to live long, healthy and happy lives by raising awareness of and support for dogs in need; and

 

WHEREAS, as part of the re-launch, the Three Dog Bakery Foundation will award major grants annually of up to $5,000.00 each to non-profit organizations that place an emphasis on adoption, spaying and neutering, and have a no-kill policy; and

 

WHEREAS, the Three Dog Foundation is supported by the donation of up to one percent of Three Dog Bakery’s annual net profits as well as private and public contributions. In addition, the Three Dog Bakery corporate office will match one dollar for every dollar raised by a Three Dog Bakery retailer up to $1,000.00; and

 

WHEREAS, formerly known as The Gracie Foundation, the founders created Three Dog Bakery out of sheer love for their own dogs with special needs and now are thrilled that Gracie’s legacy lives on in a larger sense through the “Gracie Grants” and that many more at-risk dogs throughout the country will now have a chance to show their true canine spirits and live tail-wagging good lives; NOW, THEREFORE,

 

BE IT RESOLVED BY THE COUNCIL OF KANSAS CITY:

 

That the Mayor and Council hereby honor the Three Dog Bakery on its expanded efforts to support dogs in need through the re-launch of the Three Dog Bakery Foundation; and

 

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that this Resolution be spread upon the Minutes of the Council in testimony thereof and that a copy hereof be presented to Scott Ragan with the respect of the Mayor, Council and citizens of Kansas City for the outstanding service being provided to pets in our community.
