Assemblywoman Miller Helps Feed Pets in Need

Baxter;s Pet Pantry

Assemblywoman Melissa Miller thanked Erin Kennedy, a teacher at Rhame Avenue Elementary School, and her students on Monday, April 9 for participating in the 7th Annual Legislative Pet Food Drive sponsored by Long Island Cares.

Assemblywoman Melissa Miller is pleased to announce the success of the 7th Annual Legislative Pet Food Drive, which collected hundreds of pounds of food for Baxter’s Pet Pantry, a Long Island Cares program. Since 2009, Long Island Cares has distributed food to help less fortunate families on Long Island care for their pets.

 

“Pets may come in all different shapes and sizes, but something all pets have in common is the unconditional love they show the owners who care for them,” said Miller. “I have two dogs, Kushi and Hugo, and three cats, Catsby, Polly and Bunny, and it warms my heart to know I am able to help other families on Long Island care for their pets. There are people out there who will put the needs of their pets before their own. By providing them with food for their best friends, we are not only helping take care of the pets of Long Island, but also our neighbors. I am so happy I was able to partake in this year’s drive and can’t wait to do so next year.”

Donations can be dropped off at McDonough’s district office located at 404 Bedford Avenue in Bellmore from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday.

 

“I was very pleased to receive donations from these bright students of Forest Lake Elementary, and I know their donations will go a long way to help feed needy pets in our community,” McDonough said. “I am always inspired by future leaders like these students who show a willingness to improve our community, and I wish them, their teachers and administrators the best going forward.”

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.
