The Pennsylvania SPCA and No Dog Gets Left Behind are Offering a Free Pet Food Pantry for Veterans and Active Military!
The Pennsylvania SPCA and No Dog Gets Left Behind will come together to host a free pet food pantry for veterans and active military personnel in celebration of Veteran’s Day 2020. The event, which will be hosted on a first come, first serve basis, will take place at the corner of 47th and Fairmount Avenue in West Philadelphia (19139) on Wednesday, November 11, 2020 from 10 a.m. – 12 p.m. (or while supplies last).
The Pennsylvania SPCA’s Community Outreach program is dedicated to keeping pets in their homes by building access to free resource services within neighborhoods. No Dog Gets Left Behind (NDGLB), a long-time partner of the PSPCA, recognizes the role animals play in healing, relieving stress, and bringing love into the lives of military service members. To celebrate Veteran’s Day, NDGLB has sponsored this pet food pantry to ensure that bond is not broken.
“We are proud to partner with No Dog Gets Left Behind to help fill the gaps in pet resources for Veterans and Active Military Personnel,” said Mandy Hood, Community Outreach Manager for the PSPCA. “There has always been a need for access to pet food, and this pandemic has only increased that need. Through this partnership we are proud to help keep pets happy and healthy in the homes.”
“We recognize the role pets play in healing, relieving stress, and bringing love into the lives of our heroes and we are honored to give back to those who have served our country,” said Trish Gohl, Founder of No Dog Gets Left Behind.
In addition to the PSPCA and NDGLB, long-time partners Franklin Towne Charter High School’s chapter of the National Honor’s Society will be on site throughout the morning. Franklin Towne’s NHS members are active in the Philadelphia community volunteering to make their community a better place.
