Food Banks in NY Serve Dogs

 

 NY food banks begin serving dog food this week. The program is set to expand throughout the summer and include cats soon as well. The goal is to keep families (furry and not) together and help people spend money on human food, not pet food.

Looks like the vote went towards feeding hungry dogs. Thanks for your help convincing Sea-Tac to donate the dog food!

TWELVE TONS of Dog Food – Thrown Away???

Upset by the Thought of Hungry Dogs
Sea-Tac Airport has dog food. They’ve been using it as fake luggage-weights. They’re now ready to get rid of it. They voted today on whether or not to donate the 12 TONS of near-expiration-date dog food to area food banks, which would in turn distribute it to local food banks (we hope FamilyWorks!). Given the overwhelming popularity of our post on the Oregon dog food bank (it is to-date one of our most popular posts), we thought we’d alert you to this vote that will decide the fate of the twelve, yes we repeat twelve TONS, of dog food that could be going to hungry, needy, sometimes homeless dogs. So comment away, on our blog, and let the airport know what you think. Alternatively, you can call Sea-Tac yourself and let them know how important this dog food can be for Seattle’s hungry pets. (By the way, above is a photo of Stripey, who’s always hungry, upset at the thought of other dogs going hungry.)
