Many people don’t know that Philadoptables stocks a pet food pantry in Philadelphia for people who cannot feed their pets. Over 300 animals are helped monthly! In 2010 Philadoptables was invited to collect pet food at WMMR’s The Preston & Steve Show’s Camp Out For Hunger. This event is a food drive for people since its inception, but the show hosts were kind enough to see the effect the economy was having on animals and their families. Collected pet food goes to families in need, foster parents of Philly’s open intake shelter and rescue partners who pull animals from the Philly shelter and into their loving care.
This will be our TENTH year being part of this amazing event! WMMR radio hosts Preston and Steve live in an RV for a week while conducting live shows out of a giant tent. This week-long event is super fun but more importantly – everyone there is donating people and pet food of those in need.
Philadoptables’ preparation begins a couple months in advance as we start identifying locations to place collection boxes – schools, offices, stores, everywhere we can think of! Our volunteers are amazing, and all collected food is brought to the BIG EVENT – December 2- December 6 at Xfinity Live!
Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you can help feed hungry animals! We will provide a letter of introduction, collection boxes, downloadable flyers, and posters.
Follow us on Facebook for updates as we ramp up to the event. You can help make this year a success!
