Print More

Salmon Brook Veterinary Hospital’s annual pet food drive was a huge success. Thanks to everyone’s generosity, 2,802 lbs. of dry cat and dog food along with 1,364 cans was collected. SBVH is matching your donations pound-for-pound bringing the grand total up to 5,604 lbs. of dog and cat food! It also collected $1,721 that will be shared between North Valley Animal Disaster Group in California and Lenoir County SPCA in North Carolina. Salmon Brook Veterinary Hospital has already sent a monetary donation to the Humane Society of Bay County in Florida. The food collected has been distributed to Mary’s Kitty Corner, Southwick Food Bank, Granby Food Bank, Kane’s Krusade and CT Humane Society. The match from Salmon Brook will be delivered in the spring to the same locations.

SBVH would especially like to thank Horses & Hounds for being a drop-off point throughout the food drive and donating the use of its truck the day of the food drive. Thank you to Purina and Hills for their donations to the food drive. It is great that the community can come together and support one another.
