ASPCA Donates 25 Tons of Pet Food to Pasadena Humane Society

The ASPCA Thursday donated 25 tons of pet food to the Pasadena Humane Society & SPCA, now known as Pasadena Humane.

The food was unloaded at Pasadena Humane’s South Raymond Avenue for four hours Thursday morning.

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Pasadena Humane expanded its community pet food bank, providing free cat and dog food and cat litter for residents throughout Los Angeles County struggling to feed their pets, the organization said in a statement.

“We have been the largest pet food bank distributor in the Los Angeles region since 2018,” said Dia DuVernet, President & CEO of Pasadena Humane. “This generous donation from the ASPCA will help us to support even more families in the community experiencing food insecurity as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.”

Pasadena Humane’s Pet Food Bank has provided more than 71,000 meals to pets in the community since April 2020. In just three months of this year, the food bank has already served 75% of the meals provided in all of 2019. Food Bank distribution occurs on the first Saturday of the month.

Pasadena Humane will feed up to four pets per owner, and the only requirement is that the owner agree to have all of the pets in the household spayed or neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped, which is also available for free for those in need through the agency’ Helping Paws program.

Through its national COVID-19 Relief & Recovery Initiative, the ASPCA is comprehensively addressing the most urgent needs of pet owners and animal welfare organizations across the country, helping to keep animals safe and healthy.
