Ten thousand pounds of free pet food distributed to local pet rescue partners
Nineteen pallets of pet food arrived at the Rancho Coastal Humane Society (RCHS) in Encinitas late Wednesday morning, June 3. The pet food was distributed to at no cost to local rescue groups on Friday, June 5. All but two pallets were gone within an hour. The food was loaded into their vehicles by RCHS staff and volunteers.
The food is donated through Rescue Bank operated by Greater Good.org, a non-profit organization that supports animal rescue and rehabilitation groups by providing services and supplies.
RCHS President Judi Sanzo says, “Our food distribution since the COVID 19 crisis began will be more than 70,000 pounds. Under normal circumstances the rescue groups pay for shipping. Rescue Bank tells us the cost of this shipment has been paid. This food is absolutely free to qualified rescue organizations.”
