The Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League, the largest and oldest animal rescue organization in Palm Beach County, operates a pet food bank called Peggy’s Pantry to assist local families who are struggling to feed their animals. To help these families, the league is holding a special Holiday Food Drive now through Nov. 30.
The Food Drive will help stock the shelves of Peggy’s Pantry, which benefits as many as 1,000 pets each month. In addition to helping local Palm Beach County families with pet food and basic supplies, Peggy’s Pantry also offers referrals for low-cost veterinary care and spay/neuter surgeries for pet owners. The goal is to keep families and their furry members together and out of the shelter.
“This is the season of giving, and I encourage all of those who can, to help bring cheer to families in need of some extra help feeding their pets by donating new, unopened food and other pet supplies to the Holiday Food Drive at one of the many drop-off locations across Palm Beach County,” said Rich Anderson, executive director and CEO of the Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League. “Go to www.peggyadams.org for a complete list of locations and our wish list of food items and other supplies. The league recognizes the important bond between people and animals, and believe this bond should not be broken or torn apart due to financial setbacks.”
Peggy’s Pantry is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and is located at 3200 N. Military Trail within the double-dome building.
