I read an article from a contributor to Pam’s House Blend discussing how one North Carolina man helped to organize a pet food drive for a food bank in his community. Pets do deserve compassion when their owners are struggling during these tough times. Food banks should add dog and cat food to the bundle offered to people when possible when there are donations of pet food.
It would be a good idea for a service project for a boy or girl scout troop, or student looking to do something that would make a lasting impact to have an organized drive once or twice a year to collect food, blankets and other useful goodies for the pets who need them. Although groups of people may be doing it for one or two years at most, bringing new groups to continue on the tradition would be a lasting tradition.
