When humans go hungry, their pets go hungry, too. And when money gets tight, some folks make the heartbreaking decision to surrender their pet as a money-saving measure.
This is hard on families and animals. We’re lucky in Southern Maryland to have three pet food pantries that work to help pets and their people stay together. Each county has a pet food pantry. Contact them directly if you need assistance or if you’d like to donate.
