Louisiana SPCA Delivering Pet Food to Struggling Owners
NEW ORLEANS – In addition to providing Second Harvest Food Bank with pet food for distribution, the Louisiana SPCA is expanding its public food pantry program through pickup and delivery of more than 25,000 pounds of pet food and essential supplies to struggling pet owners during COVID-19.
Traditionally only available to pet owners in New Orleans and Plaquemines Parish, pet parents will now be able to access the food pantry regardless of their parish. To keep pet owners safe and abide by social distancing requirements, all food pantry distributions will be by appointment only.
Pet food and supplies will be available for pickup at the Louisiana SPCA’s New Orleans Campus at 1700 Mardi Gras Blvd in Algiers. Due to limited resources, the Louisiana SPCA is able to offer delivery of pet food and essential supplies in New Orleans and Plaquemines Parish only. Delivery will be prioritized to those pet parents without transportation, in self-quarantine or with mobility issues.
To participate in the Louisiana SPCA’s food pantry, visit www.la-spca.org/foodpantry or call 504.368.5191. To support the food pantry, donations of unopened pet food can be dropped off at the Louisiana SPCA’s New Orleans campus at 1700 Mardi Gras Blvd. in Algiers from 10 am – 5 pm daily or donated through the organization’s wish list at www.la-spca.org/covidwishlist.
Thank you to the Louisiana SPCA community supporters who are making the food pantry possible: The Humane Society of the United States, PetSmart, Hills Pet Nutrition, By Nature, Rescue Bank, Greater Good and the Big Sky Ranch CATNIP Foundation.
