DETROIT (WXYZ) - Today Detroit Dog Rescue (DDR)along with event sponsors Detroit K-9 Pet Supplies and the GTJ Foundation are hosting their second annual Pet Pantry Project, Saturday, December 1, 2012, from 8 a.m. to noon (or until supplies run out) at Roosevelt Park - located at 2200 Michigan Ave., (the front lawn area of the Michigan Central Station - the old train station) in Corktown, Detroit.
Detroit residents struggling to feed their pet will have an opportunity to receive one free bag of pet food, hay for dog house bedding and insulation, a Detroit Dog Rescue goodie bag filled with assorted treats, supplies, pet care information and resources for as long as quantities last.
Pet Pantry Project is one of several initiatives that kicks off Detroit Dog Rescue’s Dog Days of Winter Campaign to offer services that promote and educate the important responsibilities of dog ownership – such as keeping your dog healthy through regular visits to a veterinarian and maintaining your dog’s immunization through “Vaccination Station,” encouraging dog owners to provide adequate shelter for their pet “ In the Dog House – Roofs for Woofs” and for dogs that spend a significant time outdoors in a dog house, Detroit Dog Rescue’s “ Lay in the Hay” initiative encourages owners to provide the proper bedding and insulation for a dog house by offering free hay.
Last year DDR’s Pet Pantry Project gave away over 5,000 pounds of free dog food, 50 bags of hay and 20 small, medium and large size dog houses to owners struggling financially to care and feed their dogs.
