We understand that when families with pets struggle with food insecurity also can affect the family pet. Providing emergency food assistance for these families also must include the provision of pet food.
That’s why we opened Baxter’s Pet Pantry* in Lindenhurst, and why the generosity of the Animal Relief Fund, Petco, Pet Smart, VCA Animal Hospitals, Caplan Bensley Foundation.
Pet food, when available, is offered to all our member agencies and through our direct programs. Please check the food locator for programs in your area and call that location before visiting to confirm pet food is available.
*Available to Nassau and Suffolk Counties residents only.
Long Island Cares, Inc. is very grateful to our corporate partners at PETCO, Pet Supplies Plus, Target, VCA Animal Hospitals, Pet Smart, Jazzys’ Place, The Caplan-Bensley Foundation and Walmart for their very generous donations of pet food and supplies to Baxter’s Pet Pantry.
