The second annual Pet Food Drive is kicking off October 30, 2011, just in time for the holiday season. This is a special pet food drive, the goal of which is to gather 400,000 pounds of food! All food collected during the food drive will be donated to food banks in each local community to help families in need care for and keep their pets. Sadly, too many pets lose their homes due to the cost of feeding.
From October 30 to November 13, PETCO, the PETCO Foundation, Best Friends Animal Society, and Hillís Science Diet will host the second annual Pet Food Drive.
How you can help:
Volunteer! They are looking for 500 people to help at their local PETCO store. To learn more about how you can volunteer please visit the Pet Food Drive event page.
Donate! Visit your local PETCO store between Oct. 30- Nov. 13. Food donations will be accepted at any PETCO location during business hours. Hill’s Science Diet will match donations of Science Diet pet food purchased at PETCO during this food drive. Consider donating food for cats, dogs, birds, and small animals.
