Elk Grove Food Bank Services
Needs Pet Food Donations

Will Love for FoodLike anyone who has been “adopted” by their furry kids, the clients of Elk Grove Food Bank love their pets.  For some of our clients, their pet is their only source of companionship.  As more families struggle with the difficult choices of paying the rent or buying food, some are forced to choose between keeping their pet and putting food on the table. For families that can't afford to feed their pets, the consequences are greater than just an empty stomach. When families must choose what to cut from their grocery lists, pets often suffer the most. Families can be torn apart, simply because there's not enough money to buy pet food. Consequently, many family pets will be surrendered to already overburdened shelters, and many more will be abandoned.

Sometimes a simple bowl of kibble is the force that keeps a family together and saves the lives of precious pets. Helping families stay together and keep their pets during times of economic hardship is crucial, not only for the family but also for our community. Like humans, animals deserve the basic necessities in life.

If you are able, please consider donating pet food (cat or dog) to Elk Grove Food Bank Services.  The hungry pets in our community and their families thank you.
