I Get By With A Little Help From My Friends (and their friends, too)

I can afford to feed a raw diet, and stay within my budget. I do not rely on freebies, but it is certainly awesome when they come along.

Recently I have had friends contact me about other friends of theirs looking to get rid of meat.

A couple of weeks ago, I met up with a lady who is friends with a coworker of mine.

Caroline gave me some steaks, ground beef, pork chops, and chicken thighs that she felt had been in her freezer for too long (anywhere from 6 weeks to 6 months).

Today, I made a one hour (one way) drive to meet up with Ronny, the son of some friends of my parents.

He gave me 75 lbs (!!) of venison from last year, along with a couple packages of ground beef. Well worth the drive.

My Pet Carnivore ( currently has farmed ground venison trim, for more than $6.00 per pound, as a comparison. It's not even wild, i.e. organic, high Omega 3 goodness.

The moral of this story-let people know you feed raw, and are willing to take their freezer burnt or excess meat. Their ears will perk up when they hear their hunter or homemaker friends mention excess meat, and hopefully think of you and your raw fed dogs.

I am surely blessed with great friends.

  1. Wow, that is so awesome. Happy dogs! Great point that it's definitely worth it to let your friends know you feed raw.
