San Diego Humane Society is distributing 70,000 pounds of pet food and supplies across San Diego County to pet families who need extra help during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Through the PAWS San Diego pantry program, anyone can visit SDHS’s campus locations in Escondido, Oceanside or San Diego between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. to pick up a bag of dog or cat food, as well as other supplies, such as cat litter, pet treats and pet beds while supplies last.
SDHS is partnering with the San Diego Food Bank, San Diego Unified School District and other human service groups serving seniors in our community to make pet food available at their distribution sites. Further, pet food has also been distributed to SDHS’s dog and cat Rescue Partners for the pets in their care.
“These are hard times, but we’re in this together,” said Director of PAWS San Diego Geraldine D’Silva. “We will do everything we can to keep pets with their families, where they belong, and out of the shelter.”
