Anyone in need can pick up items from The Pet Pantry and, if they can afford to, make a donation to help Brent Lodge Wildlife Hospital and Clymping Dog Sanctuary.

Owner Rebecca Rowland said: “Pet owners often feel a real sense of shame about struggling to pay for pet food, many would rather go without eating themselves.

“With The Pet Pantry we can help relieve some of that pressure, and let the pet owners in the community know that we are here for them.”
