Some people find it hard to believe that in the county with the nation’s
highest incomes on average some residents go hungry. And most recently, Loudoun
Interfaith Relief has put a focus on residents’ pets.
The Loudoun Pet Pantry on Sept. 3 began distributing cat and dog food to families in need. Any residents wishing to receive the service can contact Loudoun Interfaith Relief at 703-777-5911 or email@example.com for more information. The pantry began collecting food in August and received more than 1,000 pounds in donations after a call out.
Anyone who wants to help the Pet Pantry with a donation can drop off cat and dog food to one of several locations:
- Loudoun County Animal Services, 39820 Charles Town Pike, Waterford 20197
- Caring Hands Animal Hospital, 43300 Southern Walk Plaza, Suite #124, Ashburn 20148
- Coldwell Banker, 25 South King Street, Leesburg 20175
- Old Mill Kennel, 91 Lawson Road S.E., Leesburg 20175
The pantry accepts all brands of cat and dog food and requests bags of dry food weighing three pounds to five pounds. The greatest current need is for canned food, particularly for cats.
The Loudoun Pet Pantry is a partnership between The Humane Society of Loudoun County, Loudoun County Animal Services and Loudoun Interfaith Relief. The panty’s mission is to help keep pets in loving homes by assisting families in need with temporary, supplemental pet food for cats and dogs.
