County Division of Animal Control announced Minnie’s Pet Food Bank for
Senior Pet Owners.
Beginning this month, the shelter will
set aside pet food bank hours dedicated to senior pet owners of Frederick
County. Minnie’s Pet Food Bank will be available on the first Thursday of
the month, from Noon until 4 p.m. County residents 55 years and older are
eligible to participate. The food bank has a variety of dog and cat
food. Shelter staff will be available to assist participants.
Shea states, “We know the value of pets and understand the financial challenge
that purchasing pet food can create for our seniors. For many people,
pets are family. We hope that Minnie’s will help alleviate some of the
burden of purchasing pet food.” Minnie’s is named in memory of an English
Bulldog that was the subject of an animal cruelty investigation.
