Empty shelves at the Community Pet Food Bank at your Rancho Coastal Humane Society (RCHS) are about to be replenished thanks to a donation from Dirty Dogs  dog wash in Cardiff and Carmel Valley. Dirty Dogs held a pet food drive during December with all donations going to RCHS. They are scheduled to make a 5,000 pound delivery to the Community Pet Food Bank in Encinitas on Tuesday afternoon, January 7 at 1:00 PM.

“The Pet Food Bank is keeping people and their pets together,” according to RCHS Community Liaison Nick Winfrey. “Senior citizens living on fixed incomes, the working poor, people with disabilities or terminal illnesses, and the homeless often struggle just to feed just themselves. Thanks to the Community Pet Food Bank they no longer have to choose between whether they get to eat or they feed their pets.”

The Community Pet Food Bank has come a long way in a short time according to RCHS spokesman John Van Zante. “When we opened the Pet Food Bank 14 months ago there were only three clients on the first day. Now we’re providing more than 10,000 pet meals every month and that number is growing. This donation from Dirty Dogs means a lot.”

Winfrey points out that Dirty Dogs joins several other animal friendly businesses that support the Community Pet Food Bank. “PETCO, Pet Haus, Pet Nutrition Center, Leaping Lotus, Animal House Pet Care, and Ellen DeGeneres’ ‘Halo’ brand dog food have all made generous donations. These, along with the local pet food drives and families that drop off a bag or a few cans of pet food, are what keep this program alive.”
