Running low on pet food to keep your furry friend happy during quarantine? Don't worry, because the Louisiana SPCA has you covered! The organization just announced that they are expanding their public pet food pantry program by offering pickup and delivery options for pet owners who are struggling due to the pandemic. In addition to their supply of over 25,000 pounds of pet food and pet supplies, the Louisiana SPCA is also providing Second Harvest Food Bank with a hefty supply of pet food to be distributed to the public.
Pet owners who are interested in accessing the food pantry must make an appointment at the Louisiana SPCA's New Orleans Campus in Algiers. Residents of all Louisiana parishes may pick up food from the pantry, but delivery orders are reserved for residents of New Orleans and Plaquemines Parish only, due to limited resources. Pet owners without transportation who are self-quarantining or who have mobility issues will be given priority for delivery services.
If you're interested in helping out with the LSPCA's efforts, you can donate unopened pet food to the pantry by either physically dropping it off at the New Orleans location or by donating through their virtual wishlist, at la-spca.org/covidwishlist. To learn more about how you may access the food pantry, please visit the Louisiana SPCA website or call 504-368-5191.
