Press release: Mud Bay
Mud Bay’s new Silverdale, Washington, location opened on July 5, but instead of hosting opening day festivities, Mud Bay matched food donations made at the new store for Kitsap Humane Society’s Pet Food Pantry. The donation drive will last through July 31, and Mud Bay is committed to matching all pet food donations pound-for-pound.
Since COVID-19 began to affect Washington, Kitsap Humane Society has seen a 20-percent increase in people visiting its pet food pantry. The animal welfare organization hopes that people from the surrounding communities will take this opportunity to contribute to the pet food bank by buying or bringing food to Silverdale’s Mud Bay—and possibly help their neighbors in the process.
“One of our biggest priorities is to help pets stay in their homes and to keep families together. With this extra food, we can support more pets and their owners during this time of hardship and ensure pet owners in our community don’t have to consider rehoming their pet due to an inability to afford pet food,” said Kitsap Humane Society Events and Outreach Manager Amanda Graham.
Visitors to the new Silverdale, Washington, store can browse inside or order online for curbside pickup prior to their visit. In-person visitors can take advantage of the full-size pet scale, free treat of the week samples, and a solution-based philosophy that helps customers find the right products for their individual dog or cat.

With 56 locations in Western Washington and Oregon, Mud Bay is an employee-owned company focused on helping dogs and cats thrive through customized nutritional recommendations.
