DORAL, FL – If you have a pet and putting food in your pet’s bowl during this pandemic is hard, don’t miss the second drive-through Pet Food Bank that Miami-Dade Animal Services will be hosting in Doral.
This Thursday, April 30, the Pet Adoption and Protection Center in Doral, located at 3599 NW 79th Ave., will open its doors from 8 to 11 a.m. (or until supplies run out) to offer food to cats and dogs.
“We understand the financial strain this crisis is causing and we want to assist community pet owners by providing food for their furry family members,” said Animal Services Department Director Alex Muñoz in a news release.
“It is a small token of appreciation for the support the community has given the Animal Services Department’s mission.”
The Pet Food Bank will be possible thanks to a donation made by The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals as part of the national ASPCA COVID-19 Relief & Recovery Initiative, and the support of the Miami-Dade and Doral police departments.
Pet owners will be allowed to drive through and receive food but will be required to wear face masks or face coverings in order to keep social distancing, which is necessary at all times during the COVID-19 pandemic.
