Dogology offers Pet Food Pantry for families in need- CURRENTLY ON HOLD AFTER THE PANDEMIC
Dogology is pleased to offer a no-cost Pet Food Pantry for people from the community that need nutritious food for their dogs or cats.
“If – for whatever reason – you cannot afford food for your pets, the team at Dogology does not want your companion animal to go hungry,” said Frances Schroeder, one of the owners of Dogology. “We have been fortunate to acquire a large supply of both canned foods and bags of dry food so that we can start this Pet Food Pantry with fully stocked shelves.”
The team at Dogology is working with local area Food Banks/Pantries throughout the Farmington Valley community to get the word out about the availability of this unique Pet Food Pantry, and asking coordinators at those food banks to provide referrals to Dogology whenever there is a need.
At the same time, Dogology will accept cash donations from customers at the store to ensure that there is a steady supply of pet food that will keep the shelves of the Pet Food Pantry stocked. All of the money raised will be used to keep the Pet Food Pantry operational – support from the local community is vital to keeping this program going.
How to get food from Dogology’s Pet Food Pantry:
