Paw Pantry Initiative
The Paw Pantry Initiative of Bay Ridge Center is designed to feed and enrich your pets! We recognize how much support our furry friends can provide during the time of isolation. Our goal is to continue to support our older adults at Bay Ridge by keeping each individual and their pets healthy and secure, together at home.
In late December 2020, we distributed 500 lbs of food to 65 pets belonging to 50 of our members BRC Paw Pantry is powered by Meals on Wheels America and PetSmart Charities and is run in partnership with My Natural Pet.
In December 2020, My Natural Pet provided some of our members with FREE pet food thanks to BRC’s Paw Pantry powered by Meals on Wheels America and PetSmart Charities.
