Sometimes a little extra help feeding a cat or dog can make the difference in whether someone struggling to make ends meet has to give up their beloved pet or not.
On Tuesday, December 6, Homeward Pet Adoption Center is opening the doors of its new food bank, sponsored by Doggy Haven Resort.
From noon to 3 p.m., Homeward Pet will be distributing pet food to those in need at the Homeward Pet Adoption Center in Woodinville.
The food bank will open again on Tuesday, December 20, from noon to 3 p.m., and will continue in 2012 on the third Tuesday of every month from noon to 3 p.m.
Pet food donations are being gathered now through Homeward Pet’s second annual holiday food drive.
Dog and cat food is being collected at select Pet Pros locations during their regular business hours and at Homeward Pet between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m.
In addition to stocking the Homeward Pet Food Bank, pet food drive donations will be shared with other area food banks.
Four tons of pet food were gathered during last year’s holiday food drive and Homeward Pet is hoping for even more this year!
