About the Event
I took a stroll down Barker Way last week when two dogs, one cat, and a few loud parakeets cornered me in the parking lot of KB Donuts. They BARKED orders at me and MEOWED, "Don't play fetch with us! We know you're that guy with the BHCA!" I told them to go home right now, or I'd tell their owners, but they said, "No! Not until you agree to hold a donation drive for our furry friends at the Long Beach Animal Care Services!" I said "sure thing," and tails started waging wildly.
So with that being said, February's donations will focus on pet supplies for homeless shelter aminals and food donations to feed us, humans, too! Long Beach Animal Care Services needs any unopened dry and canned foods, pet treats (my favorite), as well as used pet supplies, such as leashes, collars, animal carriers, cat toys, and towels.
The food donations this month will support The Century Villages at Cabrillo and Days Long Beach. Both organizations are in need are canned and dry foods.
How to Donate Without Leaving Home
We've seen a significant increase in our neighbors donating through various grocery delivery services (e.g., Instacart, Amazon Fresh). If you can't make it on Saturday but still want to contribute to the drive, please schedule your grocery donations to arrive on Saturday (2/27) or Sunday (2/28). Please have your grocery donations delivered to 241 Loma, Long Beach, CA 90803, and specify the front porch as the drop-off location.
