Islip, NY. – Live.Love.Bark Dog Rescue, the non-profit volunteer group that works directly with Islip Animal Shelter and Adopt-a-Pet Center, will be holding a Thanksgiving Pet Food Drive in efforts to collect food for the shelter animals just in time for the holidays. Donations will be collected from November 1st through the 21st, and delivered to the shelter on November 22nd. Donations can be dropped to Venessa at the Media Relations Office in Islip Town Hall, 655 Main Street in Islip. Live.Love.Bark will also pick up donations.
“It is important, especially during the holiday season, to remember those less fortunate, including our furry friends waiting for their forever homes at the Islip Animal Shelter and Adopt-a-Pet Center,” said Islip Town Councilwoman Trish Bergin Weichbrodt. “I’d like to encourage our residents to participate by donating or spreading the word.”
The Islip Animal Shelter and Adopt-a-Pet Center typically shelters nearly 100 dogs and 30 cats at a time. Both dry and canned dog and cat food will be accepted, as well as rabbit food. No donation is too small. Raw-hide bones will not be accepted.
