I have written about People to People food pantry and run a food drive through Strawtown Elementary School every year......"but what about all the family pets?" I have often wondered.
Well, I recently got my answer, and it sounds great! Hudson Valley Pet Food Pantry, located in Valhalla will be open to qualified residents of Rockland, Westchester, Putnam and Dutchess counties. I have read that their long term goal is to have a separate pantry in each county, but this is a great start.
This is a good alternative to explore if you or someone you know is considering surrendering your pet because of financial challenges. Please call them at 914-907-3487 or visit the website, hvpetfoodpantry.org before making any decisions.
There is also another pet pantry, Hudson Valley Humane Society Pet Food Pantry in Pomona
Pets are important family members too...! If you can, please consider donating pet foods to these pantries.
