Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, many pet owners are struggling to feed not only themselves, but also their pets. There are several pet food banks here in Palm Beach County, but many of them are running desperately low on resources and donations.
Items most needed: dry cat food (no open bags), dry dog food (no open bags), canned adult cat food and canned kitten food, canned adult dog food and cat litter.
