A Little Kibble Goes A Long Way
The Friends of Attleboro Animal Shelter (FAAS) announces the launch of our pet food pantry, “The Kibble Kitchen”. The goal is to offer temporary assistance to Attleboro residents in need, feed their pets. Our mission is to prevent Attleboro pets from being abandoned or surrendered due to temporary financial hardships. We do this by collecting donations of wet and dry cat and dog food and make that food available, at no cost to qualified pet owners in Attleboro.
Hard economic times may result in tough choices regarding family pets for households struggling to stretch their resources. Families faced with the choice of purchasing pet food or providing for their family’s needs may have to make the heartbreaking decision to give up their pet. At a time when unconditional love from a pet is needed the most, some families feel hopeless and may not know where to turn.
A little kibble goes a long way in our community. The FAAS Kibble Kitchen will operate on donations. If you would like to help make this program a success, we are gladly accepting donated new/unopened wet and dry cat and dog food. Donations can be brought to the shelter on Wednesdays 6pm–8pm, Saturdays 11am–3pm and Sundays 11am–1pm. If other days and times are needed, please contact us via email at AttleboroPets@hotmail.com or through our Facebook page.
FAAS’s Kibble Kitchen applications are available at the shelter, on our website and can be mailed or emailed upon request.
