HOW IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE
These bags will be distributed by our community outreach team to families in underserved communities. We are focused on being a resource to our community. We set up pop-up kiosks and also work with local food pantries to supply pet food and help with emergent needs of people who have pets and are affected by the crisis.
The coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak is putting the nation’s animals at risk. People are losing the ability to pay for essential supplies and veterinary care for pets. Support us by filling and decorating ziplock bags of dry dog and/or cat food. "While our adoption programs work to bring people and pets together, our Community Outreach programs work to keep families and pets together."
