Keep Pets F.E.D. (Full Every Day)
Help stock our pet food pantry from September 1-30
The Keep Pets S.A.F.E. (Supporting Animals Facing Emergencies), program was launched three years ago to help keep pets with their families during emergencies, with services that include a pet food pantry. Our resources have been pushed to the limit and we urgently need your help to Keep Pets F.E.D.(Full Every Day)!
This month we have our most ambitious goal yet – 15,000 lbs. of pet food to support families in our community. And we can reach it with your help!
Unopened, unexpired, shelf-stable pet food may also be dropped off at any of our three locations in Boston, Dedham, or Brewster (Cape Cod), Wednesday through Sunday, from 1:00pm to 6:00pm.
