Petco and the Petco Foundation are hosting this third annual National Pet Food Drive, and are calling on all animal lovers to provide a healthy and plentiful holiday season for furry friends across the United States. The National Pet Food Drive began Sunday, Oct. 28, and will run through Sunday, Nov. 11.
During the two-week drive, consumers can pick up extra food or litter during their shopping trip, or bring unopened cans or bags from home, and drop them into specially marked pet food collection bins designated for the Kendall County Food Pantry. These bins are located at both the Oswego Store and the Shorewood Store. In support of this effort, Hill's Science Diet has committed to match, pound for pound, every bag of Science Diet dog and cat food donated.
