A dog owner who was inspired to start up a food bank service for pets has found there are plenty of animal owners needing a little help.
BBC News reports that Plymouth businesswoman Jo Butler aims to help households who are finding it difficult to feed their animals, as a result of Covid-19.
Bramble’s Pet Food Bank is named after Jo’s Cocker Spaniel Bramble and she says so far they’ve helped more than 20 pets.
People can donate online or at various drop off locations across the city. Now the community organisation may seek charity status if the public response to both donations and collections continues to grow.
“I just would not like to think of anyone having to give up their pet because they can’t afford to feed them. “All our pets mean the world to us and it’s a simple thing we can help with.”
