Charleston Animal Society’s Community Food Bank, which helps people in need feed their pets, is dangerously low and is in critical need of donations. With many pet owners out of work or underemployed and struggling to make ends meet, the Community Food Bank helps them feed the 4-legged members of their family rather than face the distressing possibility of having to give them up.
Each month, the Community Food Bank provides approximately 100 struggling families with food for their pets. The service depends entirely on donations by the public. Donations can be made by dropping off food at the shelter or by having it delivered through an online retailer such as Amazon or Petango.
“The Community Food Bank is an important aspect of our life saving efforts,” declares Pearl Sutton, Senior Director of Animal Services at Charleston Animal Society. “Most importantly, it helps keep families and their pets together.”
The Food Bank is available for any Charleston county pet owner in need. It is open every Saturday at the Charleston Animal Society located at 2455 Remount Road in North Charleston. Participating families typically receive a one month supply of food.
