A Better Way Pet Sitting cares for the pets in Massachusetts homes every day. We also do our best to care for shelter pets who have not yet found their Forever Home. During the month of October, we’re collecting pet food donations (new, unopened bags of kibble and canned food) that will benefit pets at the Northeast Animal Shelter and MSPCA Nevins Farm.
This is our second annual Hungry Bowl Pet Food Drive, a community outreach program sponsored by Pet Sitters International (PSI). We’re joining pet sitters from around the world to join forces with pet owners like you to provide local shelters with much-needed resources.
You can contribute to the cause by donating any cat or dog food. Stock up on extra food next time you go shopping for your own pets.You can shop sales or use coupons to stretch your dollar. Any brand or variety will be put to good use.
Here’s 2 convenient ways you can donate pet food:
Leave Donations For Your Pet Sitter
Donating pet food is easy if your home is visited by A Better Way Pet Sitting.
Simply leave your donation on your kitchen counter and a note to indicate that it is for the Hungry Bowl Pet Food Drive.
We’ll be collecting donations from October 1 through October 15th.
Bring Donations To Your Elementary School
Pet food collection barrels will be available in Burlington elementary school lobbies. Send your child to school with your donations and have them deposit the food in the collection barrel. Kids love helping out, and this is a great opportunity for them to make a real difference while learning about helping the animals in their community.
Last year, Burlington students donated 473 pounds of cat and dog food! We know this year will be another great success.
Collection Barrels will be in these elementary school lobbies:
Francis Wyman School Lobby from Monday, October 2nd to Friday, October 13th.
Fox Hill School Lobby from Monday, October 2nd to Friday, October 13th.
Memorial School Lobby from Monday, October 16th to Friday, October 27th
Pine Glen School Lobby from Monday, October 16th to Friday, October 27th
