Suffolk County Legislator Tom Donnelly, D-Huntington Station, is accepting a pet food drive in conjunction with Long Island Cares.
Supplies for the 11th annual Legislative Pet Food Drive can be dropped off at his office at 130 West Jericho Turnpike, Huntington Station. Contributions will go to Baxter’s Pet Pantry of Long Island Cares (www.licares.org). All donations go directly to Baxter’s Pantry. While 5 and 10 pound bags of dog and cat food, canned food, kitty litter and new pet toys are most needed, all pet nourishments are welcome including food for hamsters, fish, birds and ferrets.
Items can be dropped off Monday through Friday between 9 am and 4 pm until May 31. As per health code requirements, all pet food must be unopened and in original packaging. For more information or to make an appointment to donate outside of these hours, call (631) 854-4433.
“Now, more than ever it is important to remember that hard times impact all members of the family,” said Legislator Donnelly. “Families shouldn’t have to decide between feeding themselves and feeding their beloved pets. I am happy to partner with Long Island cares again on this important and much needed cause.”
