With the Holiday season around the corner there are lots of deserving charities out there, especially animal charities. While I would hate to detract from the excellent works of Ronnie and Dan, there is a local charity which gives assistance to pet owners who have fallen on hard times and helps them support their pet. Seems like a great idea to me. Prevents the poor innocents from ending up at the pound. I have pasted part of an article from "Around Wellington" which gives details.
Please help if you can.
Angelina Wilson, founder of Kibblez of Love, keeps a list of local pet owners who need assistance in caring responsibly for their animals. The 501(c)3 charity screens low-income owners, visits their pets, and arranges to provide food donated to the cause. Dry food is most requested for dogs, but wet food (packets, cans, etc.) seems to always be in short supply for cats. Cash is always welcome, as there is a low-cost vet that Angelina works with (also a 501(3)c charity), which neuters/spays pets for client families.
Pet food drop off location, in the Western Palm Beach communities, is “My Whole Pet Market,” in the old Kmart plaza, corner of 441 and Southern Blvd., near the Post Office. Owner Pablo Sanchez has a bin there for your donations, and also offers a generous discount on the pet foods he carries, if you purchase for donation. There are also several Publix stores in the Boca Raton area, which act as food drop-off sites. Please contact Kibblez of Love for a list.
