Support PETCO’s First National Pet Food Drive

Help feed hungry pets and animals – from Care2Cause:

“PETCO and the PETCO Foundation, along with help from Best Friends Animal Society, are launching the first national pet food drive in the U.S. that will last November 5-15.

In March PETCO and the PETCO Foundation started a pet food drive in select stores. Now there are collection bins in over 1,000 locations throughout the country. So far, the venture has already collected more than 110 tons of food and litter.

With the guiding principle that people shouldn’t have to choose between feeding themselves, their kids or their pets, or giving up their pets in tough times, stores are partnering with food banks and rescue groups in their community to provide pet food and litter to pet parents in need. Hill’s Science Diet will also be matching donations bag-for-bag, up to 25,000 pounds, for every bag of their cat or dog food purchased at a PETCO store and donated to the drive.

Volunteers from Best Friends will also be at 198 stores on Nov 6-7 and 13-14 to help with the food drive and tell people about their No More Homeless Pets campaign. Check here to find a list of stores where they will be volunteering.”
