The Good Box and Petbarn Foundation help homeless feed their pets
The Good Box has collaborated with the Petbarn Foundation to launch “The Good Pet Box”, helping pet-owners experiencing homelessness maintain the welfare of their four-legged friends.
The box features a selection of products for pets’ health, including food, treats and other items.
“Pets provide love and companionship, which is often really hard to get when you are experiencing homelessness,” said Gali Blacher, co-founder at The Good Box. “Our friends experiencing homelessness often put their pet’s needs before their own which is why something like The Good Pet Box is so important, especially with the holiday season coming up.”
The box is available for donors to purchase online at $15. Donated boxes will be sent to one of The Good Box’s 20-plus charity partners to help their clients experiencing homelessness and who have pets.
“We know pets have a positive impact on a person’s mental health and well-being. It’s extremely important to ensure pet owners experiencing homelessness are supported” said Janelle Bloxsom, manager at Petbarn Foundation.
