McDonough Announces Return of Baxter’s Pet Pantry Pet Food Drive

Assemblyman Dave McDonough announced that he is once again participating in the 7th Annual Legislative Pet Food Drive Challenge to be held from February 12th through April 30th. McDonough said he is honored to host this event once again as animals bring a lot of joy and companionship to people’s lives.

 

“I have enjoyed hosting this event in collaboration with Long Island Cares and Baxter’s Pet Pantry in the past, and now I look forward to our efforts this year,” McDonough said. “Pets bring a tremendous amount of companionship and comfort to the elderly and those who live alone and they can also serve as friends for young children. I encourage members of the community to stop by and make a donation this winter. Even a small donation can mean the difference between a pet going hungry or possibly going to a shelter.”

 

Regrettably, SNAP funding does not include the purchase of pet food, which makes it one of the greatest demands, besides food, at local food pantries.

 

The best sizes of pet food to donate are five or 10 pound bags of dog or cat food. Canned food, kitty litter and new pet toys are also in demand. Donations will be accepted at McDonough’s district office at 404 Bedford Avenue in Bellmore from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. More information can be found at their Web site.
