Pet Food Drive THIS SUNDAY 8/7

A pet food drive organized by PAWsitive Pantry this weekend will collect cat and dog food to benefit The Open Door and Cape Ann Animal Aid.

Help us stock our shelves so that we have the food people need for their pets! Dogs and cats are part of the family, so lets make sure everyone gets the meals they need.

Donations will be accepted Sunday August 7 at the Shaws on Eastern Ave. in Gloucester from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Thank you!
