Bridgend Animal Rescue Centre (BARC) have announced that their pet bank service will assist people unable to find food for their pets during the current ‘panic buying’ crisis.
The centre, based in North Cornelly, has offered a pet food bank for some time thanks to generous food donations from Welsh pet food manufacturer Burns and donations from the public.
Rescue Director, Rebecca Lloyd, explains:
“If you have a genuine pet food emergency, we are here to help. We are aware of the food shortage In the shops and know this extends to pet food – so while current shortages are happening, we can help those most in need.
“However, we must stress that only those in genuine need should get in touch because we don’t have an infinite supply of food, however we want to make sure that no pet goes hungry because of panic buying and are here to help those least able to feed their pets.
“To arrange a pet food collection, please go to the yellow pod on Gibbons Way in Cornelly for a pet food voucher, then give our office a call to arrange an appointment to collect. Calling is important because we are operating an appointment system and our office is not open to the public at this time.”
