Second Pet Food Giveaway
Updated: Aug 24, 2020
Second Pet Food Giveaway from Blue Ridge Humane and the ASPCA scheduled for Henderson County
Blue Ridge Humane Society is partnering once again with the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty Animals (ASPCA) Spay/Neuter Alliance in Asheville to provide a free pet food giveaway to those in need or affected by COVID-19, on Tuesday, June 2, from 9am-1pm at the Blue Ridge Humane Society storage facility located at 802 S. Grove Street in Hendersonville, NC. Cat and dog food will be distributed first come, first serve, as supplies last. Social distancing and protective measures will be taken by all staff and we ask the public to do the same (contact free, wear a mask, and keep a 6ft distance).
Food is provided through part of the ASPCA’s Relief and Recovery Initiative, which has included the creation of regional pet food distribution centers provided in partnership with the Petco Foundation, to give dog and cat owners free access to critical food supplies as the outbreak continues to spread. During the first distribution in May over 250 pets were fed with food provided through the partnership.
If you believe in our cause, consider making a donation or learning how to volunteer by visiting the Blue Ridge Humane Society’s website at www.blueridgehumane.org or call (828) 692-2639.
