How it helps

By making and selling dog biscuits you can help raise money for the MSPCA which takes care of and finds homes for thousands of homeless and unwanted animals each year. You will also help spread awareness of the importance of helping to protect and aid animals, especially those without a proper home. And of course, you'll be providing dogs with a tasty treat!


1. Find a healthy dog cookie recipe on the internet or at the library, or use the following recipe:

  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup cornmeal
  • 6 tablespoons oil
  • 2/3 cup water
  • 1 cup peanut butter (optional)

Mix all ingredients into a bowl. Roll the dough flat until it is about 1/2 inch thick. Cut out shapes using your favorite cookie cutters. Bake for 35-40 minutes at 350 degrees.

2. After lettiing the cookies cool, package them up using plastic bags and colorful ribbon.

3. Sell them around your neighborhood to neighbors with dogs or visit a local dog park and ask people to support the MSPCA by buying the biscuits you have made.

4. Count up your earnings and give it to your mom or dad or other grown up who can take the cash and make the donation to MSPCA.
