Do Good Detroit: Local businesses collect food and supplies for The Animal Care Network
Every single weekend of the year, Animal Care Network (ACN) volunteers pick up between 10 and 30 unwanted and abandoned animals in Pontiac. In addition, ACN volunteers provide an average of 650 animal wellness checks every single month to Pontiac animals. To be able to continue this work, ACN is holding a food and supply drive.
“ACN Volunteers do extremely difficult work (work that most of us would not be able to do) and all they want is the food and supplies they need to help animals. That’s where we can help. If we each just contribute something, together we can make a world of difference to help these animals in need. My hat is off to the volunteers of MAAN / ACN,” said Michelle Mullen, co-owner of Aleta Sill’s Bowling World.
The most-needed items include:
- Unopened dog food in 18-40 lb bags
- Unopened cat food in 5-30 lb bags
- Medium and large, stainless steel bowls
- Buckle collars in 18″, 20″, 22″, 24″ lengths
