9th Annual Legislative Pet Food Drive

The 9th Annual Legislative Pet Food Drive 

March 1st through May 31st 

The 9th Annual Legislative Pet Food Drive brings together all levels of state and local elected officials in an attempt to gather much needed pet food donations for struggling Nassau and Suffolk County families.

Did you know Long Island Cares has a PET PANTRY?


Long Island Cares started Baxter’s Pet Pantry in 2009 and has since distributed over one million pounds of pet food, all of which has been donated through pet food drives, like this one, and corporate donations. Want to know more? 



Most Needed Pet Foods

  • 5 or 10 pounds bags of dog and cat food (larger bags always accepted)
  • Canned dog and cat food
  • Kitty litter
  • Treats

  • Food for ALL PETS – included but not limited to reptiles, fish, ferrets, and hamsters!
