Monterey County SPCA opens Food Bank for pets!

This info comes from The Californian!

The SPCA for Monterey County is opening a Pet Food Bank for pet owners who are faced with giving up their pets because they can no longer afford to feed them.

The SPCA’s Pet Food Bank, the first of its kind in Monterey County, is supported by cash donations and donations of unexpired, unopened pet food.

Many needy families in our community are pet owners who love their pets but are having a difficult time providing food for both their families and their animals. This new program reduces the risk of families being forced to give up their beloved pets because they can’t afford to feed them.

People experiencing economic difficulties, especially those with no close family, are particularly in need of their pet’s unconditional love and companionship.

To donate, bring unopened and unexpired pet food to the SPCA, 1002 Highway 68, directly across from Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca, between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. on any day.

You can also donate online at www.SPCAmc.org to support the SPCA Pet Food Bank for Monterey County.

Businesses that would like to donate a large amount of food should contact the SPCA directly.

If you are in need of aid to keep your pet in your home, please visit the SPCA. Pet food will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis.
