Dogs On The Farm runs an annual pet food drive to benefit local families, and we want to offer you the opportunity to join us in raising pet food donations this holiday season. All season a sleigh will be displayed outside in our parking lot with donation bins. Accepted donations include: canned and dry dog food, canned and dry cat food, treats, and cat litter.
Our goal is to provide support for local families to keep their pets in their loving homes rather than surrendering them to shelter due to lack of money for pet supplies. All donations will be delivered to Lunch Break food pantry in Red Bank. Lunch Break is a wonderful local food pantry/kitchen that provides food for families in need. Although they are best known for their human food pantry, pet food is also in high demand and is well-used and appreciated by the local community.
When finances are stretched, especially around the holidays, families can be forced to choose between feeding themselves or their pets. In this situation even greatly loved pets are often surrendered to shelters. Although it is wonderful to provide donations to pet shelters and rescues, we want to help families before they have to make the choice to give up their pets.
Donations are accepted year-round at the Dogs On The Farm office, but there is a sense of urgency around the holidays when pets are historically at greatest risk of being surrendered.
