Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League Hosts Holiday Food Drive
to Help Families in Need
Palm Beach County, FL-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 hurting financially and struggling to feed their animals. To help these families, Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League is holding a special Holiday Food Drive now through November 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 vet care and spay/neuter surgeries for pet owners. The goal is to keep families and their fur 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 Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League. “Go to PeggyAdams.org for a complete list of locations and our wish list of food items and other supplies”, continued Anderson, “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. “
For a complete list of needed items and official drop-off locations, in addition to Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League, please visit www.PeggyAdams.org/peggys-pantry.
Peggy's Pantry is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10am to 5pm and is located at 3200 N. Military Trail within the double-dome building.
