PACC911’s Chuck Waggin Pet Food Pantry provides low-income families and elderly residents with food for their pets so the animals can stay in their homes.
Through its referral network and food donation program, the organization helps families in crisis by offering pet food to those who might not be able to afford it. This program helps keep beloved pets home as opposed to having them being turned in to a shelter or rescue organization.
There are two drop-off locations, where people can donate pet food. One is Doggy Daze Grooming at 5555 N. Seventh St., Suite 125. It is open from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Mondays through Fridays, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturdays and 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sundays. Contact this business ahead of time at 602-626-5006 to verify hours during this COVID-19 pandemic. The other location for drop-offs is McClintock Animal Care Center Vet Clinic at 1836 E. Elliot Road in Tempe. You can reach that clinic by calling 480-820-2822.
The Chuck Waggin Pet Food Pantry is in greatest need of dog and cat food, as well as kitty litter and bowls, leashes and toys for pets. You also can make a financial donation online. To learn more, visit https://pacc911.org/chuck-waggin.
