WANTED: PET FOOD !!!
Two pet animal advocates- Susan from Truth ABout Pet Foods and Mollie of Poisoned Pets have announced a PET FOOD DRIVE where two online retailers, Brehon Pet Supply Outlet and Chewy dot com, are teaming up with a NJ feed farm supplier and a NY vet to distribute food donations that are going out to the needy victims of Hurricane Sandy, many of whom are still without power & heat after all this time!
Folks that are in a position to make a purchase of FROMM food through Brehons will receive a 20% discount when entering coupon code SANDY and your donation will be delivered to the Staten Island emergency vet for distribution.
Alternatively, the second retailer: Chewy.com is adding $20 worth of food to orders that are being placed for donation- so you can pick & choose what you want to donate & all of it will be shipped to Mike's Feed Farm in Riverdale, NJ for distribution.
Background information on all these parties as well as detailed instructions can be viewed clearly HERE including some phone numbers in case you want to speak to someone in person.
One source says CANNED FOOD is more in need at the moment as well as CAT FOOD but whatever you choose to donate, i'm sure the recipients will be immensely grateful for it.
Imagine what it would feel like if your household had been hit by Sandy and everyone was huddled up trying to stay warm... or if you were displaced & your fur babies were having to live at the shelter- some of whom are operating on generators and flashlights. Wow- not easy and certainly not pleasant.
As proposed via our Yahoo Groups email, a few EFA members have already contacted me regarding making toys. We have an excellent tutorial already written up on how to make tug toys- they can be made from fleece or t-shirts fabric and in various sizes for cats and dogs alike.

If you'd like to participate in OPERATION CHEW TOYS a Team project of goodwill, pls contact Nicole of Brizel4TheAnimals.
