Piedmont Pet Pantry seeks to double donations

With the current state of the economy, many families are struggling to keep food on the table—let alone in the dog bowl. Piedmont Pet Pantry, a nonprofit that distributes dog and cat food to families who can’t afford to feed their pets, is working to combat this problem.

Four times per month, the Pantry distributes dog and cat food to families who cannot afford to feed their pet. Currently, the Pantry distributes 2,290 pounds of food to 94 families for 394 pets per month, but is looking to double that average.

Those who want to help can donate food (wet or dry) to one of the following locations: Albemarle Veterinary Care Center, Almost Home Pet Adoption Center, Pampered Pets or Pet Supplies Plus. Those in need should visit the Pantry’s website for more information.
