K9Cuisine.com and the WellPet Foundation are each donating 5,000 pounds of dog food to the Pooch Pantry in Mundelein, Illinois, USA, according to an article from www.dogchannel.com.
The pantry helps financially strapped families feed their pets, according to the article.
The goal is to feed as many dogs as possible by keeping the petfood bank stocked for months, said Anthony Holloway, K9Cuisine.com owner.
Also, Pedigree donated 500 pound of petfood after Friday Night Live, a Corning, California, USA, teen group that helps out local seniors, discovered they were sharing part of their Meals on Wheels food with their pets because they could not afford to buy petfood, according to Corning Observer.
The group asked petfood manufacturers to help, and Pedigree responded with a donation of gift certificates for 500 pounds of dog food, said FNL leader Tina Zastrow.
