“Pets provide stability for their families during trying times. Unfortunately, during financially stressful times, often the pet is the first that is sacrificed in order to be able to afford food to feed the family. Our nation has risen admirably to the plight of impoverished families who need to be fed and there are food banks in nearly every major city to help with this crisis. At the Petco Foundation we wanted to build upon this generous spirit. Many families have been sharing their own food bank portions with their extended family members, and those that can’t make the food stretch make the painful decision to relinquish their family pet. To combat this growing issue, many food banks across the nation have added pet food and litter to their pantries.
The Petco Foundation has expanded our We Are Family Too program to include a Food Bank Collection Program in our Petco stores nationwide. This program was specifically created to support food bank’s inventory of pet food/litter to assist people in financial crisis feed their pets.”
