Given the current economic climate, an increased number of petfood pantries are opening across the US, according to a story from zootoo .
Among those locations is the Buffalo Companion Animal Network petfood pantry in Buffalo, N.Y., which also has a special food donation program for seniors.
The story also notes some general food pantries are stocking more petfood, and the Humane Society of the United States now is compiling a database of petfood pantries.
New shelter data casts doubt on whether the pet population and pet ownership are truly growing.
While the pandemic caused unprecedented suffering worldwide in 2020, the disruptions to dogs, cats and other pets adoption numbers may normalize in 2021.
