Ensuring No Pet Goes Hungry: Bergen County SPCA’s “No Empty Bowls” Pet Food Bank

In a world where pets are cherished members of our families, it’s heartbreaking to imagine them going hungry. Fortunately, the Bergen County SPCA is stepping up to ensure that no pet in need goes without food through their “No Empty Bowls” Pet Food Bank initiative.

Addressing Pet Hunger

Operating from April to December, on the second Sunday of each month, from 11am to 1pm, the Bergen County SPCA’s “No Empty Bowls” Pet Food Bank provides a lifeline for pet owners struggling to feed their furry companions. Located at the Bergen County Animal Shelter, 100 United Lane in Teterboro, NJ, this vital service offers a helping hand to residents facing financial hardship.

Who Can Access the Pet Food Bank?

The “No Empty Bowls” Pet Food Bank is open exclusively to residents of Bergen County, Kearny, East Newark, and Harrison. To access the service, individuals must present a government-issued ID as proof of residency. This ensures that assistance is provided to those most in need within the community.

A Note on Eligibility

It’s important to note that the “No Empty Bowls” Pet Food Bank is designed to support personally owned pets only. While the Bergen County SPCA deeply values all animals, resources are limited, and the focus of this program is on helping individual pet owners care for their beloved companions. Unfortunately, the Pet Food Bank is unable to supply rescues or cat colonies at this time.

How You Can Help

The success of the “No Empty Bowls” Pet Food Bank relies on the support of compassionate individuals like you. Here’s how you can make a difference:

  1. Donate: Consider making a donation of pet food or funds to support the Pet Food Bank’s efforts. Every contribution, no matter how small, helps keep bowls full and pets nourished.
  2. Spread the Word: Help raise awareness about the Pet Food Bank among friends, family, and community members. Share information about the service on social media, local bulletin boards, and neighborhood forums.
  3. Volunteer: Get involved by volunteering your time and skills to assist with food distribution days or fundraising events. Your support directly impacts the well-being of pets and their owners in need.

Together, we can ensure that no pet goes hungry in Bergen County and surrounding areas. By supporting the “No Empty Bowls” Pet Food Bank, we’re not just feeding animals – we’re nurturing the bonds of love and companionship that make our lives richer.
