Big Sky CARES is proud to be the Louisiana affiliate for GOODS!

What is the GOODS Program?

GOODS is a program of Greater Good Charities that distributes food, essential supplies, clothing, housewares, toys, and more to pets and people in need across the world. The GOODS Program has a more holistic approach than Greater Good Charities’ previous program (Rescue Bank) that focused solely on the distribution of pet food and supplies to a select group of animal rescue partners. The increase in poverty, food insecurity, and domestic violence over the past several years has affected families, including their pets, resulting in a greater need for food and essential supplies across the globe for both people and pets alike.

How does it work?

As donated supplies become available, Big Sky distributes them to organizations who have been pre-approved for participation.

Who can participate?

Animal welfare and human services organizations such as:

  • Food banks and Pet Food Pantries

  • 501(c)3 animal rescue organizations (e.g., cat, dog, equine, and wildlife shelters, rescues, and sanctuaries)

  • State, parish, or regional animal welfare facilities

  • Law enforcement agencies (e.g., animal control)

  • Housing (including emergency, transitional and permanent)

  • Community Resource and Outreach (including homeless services)

  • Domestic Violence Shelters and Resources

  • Organizations serving Women and Children or Veterans

  • Organizations Promoting Education or Literacy

  • Federal government agencies including Veterans Affairs and Federal Emergency Management Agency

  • State and local community programs and offices
