Salmon Brook Veterinary Hospital will hold its 9th annual pet food drive on Saturday, Dec. 11 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Dog and cat food donations will go directly to local food pantries, shelters and rescues. Monetary donations are always welcomed, and this year will be sent to Connecticut Draft Horse Rescue, an organization that gives draft horses a second chance at life, saving them through intercepts, auctions and kill pens, as well as providing a home for horses whose owners can no longer provide care for them.

SBVH will accept food donations from Monday, Dec. 6 to the day of the food drive, Saturday, Dec. 11. There will be storage containers at the front of the building labeled for pet food donation drop offs. On the day of the food drive, there will be a tent set up with a table for pet food drop off and staff to assist you. Food can be delivered to SBVH directly from Chewy’s as well.

There will also be collection bins for pet food donations at Horses & Hounds, 15 Mill Pond Road, and the Granby Stop & Shop—both businesses have supported this pet food drive year after year. Many thanks!

As in past years, Salmon Brook Veterinary Hospital will match the food donations up to 3,000 pounds. At the request of the food pantries and shelters, preferred donations of dog and cat food are bags of kibble 30 pounds or under and canned food. Further information to follow on SBVH’s Facebook page. Please support your neighbors and the pets they love. Thank you for your continued support!
