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 is continuing their "Drive-Thru Pet Food Bank", to help families continue to feed their dogs and cats.
Over the past two weeks, St. Hubert's has given out more than 6,000 cans of dog and cat food, 3,000 pounds of dry food and more than 1,000 pounds of cat litter. They 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 is open Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 10am -12 noon and 2pm - 4 pm. The animal welfare center is located at 575 Woodland Avenue, People are asked to 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
