Based on last year’s statistics, 20,000 pounds of pet food will meet the annual demand of the Bay Water Animal Rescue and Talbot and Caroline Humane organizations, said Mary Kramer, Vice-President of Pet Pantries. We are sincerely grateful to UPS for their partnership and support of our food drive.
