Gloucester, MA, July 24—A pet-food food drive is scheduled for July 24 at the Shaw’s Supermarket on Eastern Ave in Gloucester. The Pet Food Task Force via Cape Ann Animal Aid is accepting donations to benefit The Open Door so that pet food can be distributed through their food pantries. The drive will take place from 1-4 p.m. and will be accepting small to medium sized bags and cans of cat food and dog food and gift cards.
Pet Food Task Force works with our partners Cape Ann Animal Aid and The Open Door to ensure low-income residents of Gloucester have access to food for their pets. Pets are an important part of the family and an important aspect of many people’s mental health. Providing pet food security to households also reduces strain on shelters.
