The BC SPCA in Parksville-Qualicum Beach has partnered with the Mt. Arrowsmith Salvation Army Food Bank to provide the Outreach Pet Food Program for those pet guardians affected by the pandemic.
While the branch has provided pet food whenever they could to people in need throughout the years, the branch has now been able to expand their pet food program to reach more people in need during these difficult times.
“We have all gone through challenging times with the COVID-19 pandemic, and it has had a financial impact on many families,” says Nadine Durante, manager of the BC SPCA in Parksville-Qualicum Beach. “Thanks to an increasing amount of food donations from our generous community, we are able to better support pet guardians and their pets during the pandemic through this partnership.”
