‘Tis the Season: Donate Pet Food Today

Written on November 14, 2013 by Sommer Aweidah Hospital: Bulger Veterinary Hospital

Donate Pet Food TodayHelp those with pets less fortunate than your own by donating unopened, non-expired bags and cans of pet food today. Last year thanks to your generosity we were able to donate 405lbs of food to Neighbors in Need through CoPal. This year we are working with the Merrimack Valley Food Bank, and hope to donate at least the same amount, if not more. The Merrimack Valley Food Bank will accept food for dogs, cats and small mammals such as rabbits, guinea pigs and ferrets.

While Bulger collects donations of food year-round, we try and increase our efforts around the Holidays. The Merrimack Valley Food Bank is one of four food banks in Massachusetts that serves food pantries, shelters and meal programs that in turn, serve individuals and families. Enabling food banks to provide families with pet food can make the difference between keeping their pet through difficult times, and giving them up to a shelter.

At Bulger Veterinary Hospital we value the strength of the bond between a person and their pet, and believe that families should never have to choose between feeding themselves, and feeding their pet. Please help us help these families in need.

Donations can be dropped off at Bulger Veterinary Hospital in North Andover 24 hours per day – either at the front door between 7am and 8pm, or at the Emergency entrance on the side from 8pm onwards, seven days per week. Your donation can make a difference in someone’s life. Help us keep families intact, pets out of shelters, and bellies full this holiday season.

Donate today.  Our address is 247 Chickering Road, North Andover, MA 01845.
