ACC Holds Food Drive for Shelter Pets

Due to the recent influx of pets coming into the main animal shelter, Palm Beach County Animal Care & Control – in partnership with Palm Beach County Fire Rescue – is holding a food drive to help feed pets residing at the shelter and in foster homes.

The shelter is asking the community for help by donating any of the following canned foods:

·         Fancy Feast, kitten or adult,  chicken or seafood flavor (pâté)

·         Royal Canine, babycat

·         Nutro, kitten, any flavor (pâté)

·         Proplan, dog or cat, any flavor (pâté)

Donations can be brought or shipped directly to Animal Care and Control, located at 7100 Belvedere Road, West Palm Beach, FL 33411, or any Palm Beach County Fire Rescue station.

Visit http://discover.pbcgov.org/pbcfr/Pages/Stations-Apparatus.aspx to find the nearest Palm Beach County Fire Rescue station.

Residents dropping off their donations at a Fire Rescue station will receive a free window decal for their home. The window decals alert first responders to the number of pets residing in the home in the event of an emergency.

Donations can also be brought to the following locations:

  • Wellington Branch Library – 1951 Royal Fern Drive, Wellington
  • Jupiter Branch Library – 705 Military Trail, Jupiter
