Pets are an integral part of a loving family.  In times of need,Guest Posting especially with today’s slowing economy, food can be scarce and hard to come by for many families throughout the US.  Local area food banks provide families with the much needed food supply.  But what about their innocent pets? 

In Atlanta, as of mid-2008, there exists two suburban pet food banks.  Such organizations and groups are beginning to form throughout metropolitan areas, stemmed from common love for our furry pet friends.  When times are tough for a family, pets should be not be neglected and they should be helped out as well.  It is the goal of these local pet food banks to assist pets when they are in need.

Local Atlanta community leader Ann King, owner of Blooming Cookies/PAWS Fifth Avenue, has partnered up with local PALS (Pets Are Loving Support) organization to be able to deliver much needed pet food supplies to families and pets.  King’s goal is to unite organizations and groups with the common goal of helping families and their beloved pets.

King is meeting with company officials of pet stores and pet food manufacturers to see about getting large donations of pet food. They've also set up drop-off points at more than 20 locations so people can donate dog and cat food.  Many donations can be directly given to a family.

Furthermore, such organizations provide great education and tips on proper pet care for all families.  During the hot summer months, it is highly recommended to keep fresh food in the bowl.  Also cleaning the bowl prior to placing food in it will allow the food to last longer.

Even with the expansion of these community programs, the need for pet food is on the rise.  Donations are greatly needed and appreciated.
