Nicole Wilks and the Animal Food Bank are bringing pet food to animals who need it most

by | Interesting |

The Ontario SPCA and Humane Society launched the Urgent Animal Care Fund to help support vulnerable animals and ensure pets in our communities are safe should their families face hardship during COVID-19. Through this fund, and with the help of generous corporate partners and a network of volunteers, we have been providing pet food to those who need it most. Thanks to Nicole with the Animal Food Bank, we are able to reach even more animals.

Watch this interview with Nicole to learn all about the great work the Animal Food Bank is doing, and how she got connected to the Ontario SPCA!

 

Through the Urgent Animal Care Fund, and with the help of a network of volunteers and generous corporate partners like Royal Canin, Smuckers, Mars Petcare and local community businesses, we have been providing pet food to those who need it most. We have established three pet food distribution hubs and, to date, more than 100,000 lbs of pet food have been distributed across the province.

Originally founded in Kelowna, B.C. the Animal Food Bank aims to become a national organization promoting the sharing of resources and knowledge, and promoting collaboration between organizations working to feed and shelter the homeless and their pets.

I stand behind SPCA with my monthly gift

I stand behind SPCA with my monthly gift. I am so happy there are folks like you to care for those who can’t help themselves.  My family and I have had animals all our lives and know what a comfort they are.  Thank you SPCA.
