Help Families with Pets Less Fortunate than your Own: Donate Pet Food TodayNovember 14, 2013

North Andover, MA November 14, 2013 – Bulger Veterinary Hospital in North Andover is working with the Merrimack Valley Food Bank to collect pet food for families struggling to put food on the table this holiday season. Bulger has run this food drive every year since 2010, and while we collect pet food year round, we acknowledge that the holiday season can be especially difficult for some families.

In 2012 thanks to the generosity of our staff and clients, Bulger was able to donate 405lbs to Neighbors in Need through CoPal.  This year Bulger will be donating to the Merrimack Valley Food Bank. They are 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 by donating unopened, non-expired bags or cans of food for pets. The Merrimack Valley Food Bank will accept food for dogs, cats and small mammals such as rabbits, guinea pigs and ferrets.

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.
