MADISON, NJ - During the COVID-19 crisis, some people now find themselves struggling to not only feed themselves, but to feed their pets. St. Hubert's Animal Welfare Center has developed a "Drive-Thru Pet Food Bank", to help families continue to feed their dogs and cats.
St. Hubert's will continue to provide this service, free of charge, for as long as possible, said the animal welfare center. The food bank is made possible through a major pet donation from GreaterGood.org and Chewy.
The Drive Thru Pet Food Bank begins tomorrow, Wednesday April 1 with two pick up times; 10am - 12noon and 2pm - 4pm and will continue every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Residents should come to the shelter located at 575 Woodland Avenue, stay in their cars and staff members will bring out either dog or cat food to their cars.
Municipalities and social services agencies anywhere in the state can also receive food and supplies from St. Hubert’s to help ensure no one will need to consider surrendering a pet if affording the basics is a challenge, said St. Hubert's
