No Dog Should Go Hungry Because the Family Lives One County Away

When our friends at Orange County Animal Care called to ask for help, we did what you would do. We said “Yes.”

We learned that they were holding a pet food giveaway to help veterans, seniors, people living on fixed incomes, and families struggling to make ends meet. They needed dog food. “Could Rancho Coastal Humane Society help?”

RCHS President Judi Sanzo contacted Monica Kaiser, a retired San Diego Police Lieutenant, who now volunteers as manager of our Pet Food Bank. Monica said we had dog food to spare, and that we would still be able to meet the needs of our regular clients.

Our Orange County friends sent a volunteer to collect dog food, treats, flea prevention and other supplies. The OC volunteer, who arrived early (because traffic was light) was “loaded up” by our volunteers, hit I-5 and headed back north, but not before leaving a donation to RCHS to fund our Pet Food Bank!

No dog should go hungry simply because it lives in a different county. Helping those in need is what RCHS does best!   

Typically, open two Saturdays per month, with the impact of COVID-19, we quickly added extra days to meet the need. The Pet Food Bank will continue to be open from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. EVERY Saturday morning through the end of 2020.
