New York State Assemblyman Dave McDonough is teaming with Long Island Cares and Baxter’s Pet Pantry to gather donations of pet food to help more pets stay in their homes with their families and not be taken to shelters for lack of food.
The Pet Food Drive is through April 30. Of note: All pet foot must be unopened and in its original packaging. No opened bags, ripped bags or loose pet food can be accepted.
The best sizes of pet food to donate are five or 10 pound bags of dog or cat food. Canned food, kitty litter and new pet toys are also in demand. Donations are being accepted at Assemblyman McDonough’s district office at 404 Bedford Avenue in Bellmore from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Call 409-2070 for more information.
