MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — It’s the time of year for giving, but don’t forget about the animals out there. Now is your chance to help out our animal shelters and pet non-profits.
The Great Minnesota Pet Food Drive is the first of its kind in Minnesota, and it’s designed to help out dogs in needy families this holiday season. Downtown Dogs in Minneapolis is hosting the pet food drive for families facing a financial hardship that might not always be able to afford basic amenities for their pets.
It can be tragic to have to give up a dog because a family can no longer afford to feed them. The need is always there, but it’s especially important during the holiday season when many families are that much more strapped financially.
The Great Minnesota Pet Food Drive has been going on for about a month and goes until Dec. 15 at Downtown Dogs. If you want to donate, you can drop off food or other donations at Dog Days in St. Paul, Dog Day Getaway in Apple Valley or Pampered Pooch in St. Louis Park.
