The SMAWL Pet Food Pantry was established as a resource for needy families to acquire pet food and little for their pets during temporary financial difficulties in an effort to keep companion animals with their families. The SMAWL Pet Food Pantry would not be possible without the support of St. Mary’s County’s Department of Public Safety’s Animal Control Division.
Donations are accepted at the PETCO stores in California, Prince Frederick, La Plata and Waldorf.
Donations are also accepted at the Pepper’s Pet Pantry (a SMAWL sponsor) located in Callaway; they also generously donate all food and litter that cannot be sold in their stores (such as torn bags or dented cans) to the SMAWL Pet Food Pantry.
Donations can also be delivered to Animal Control. Cash donations for the SMAWL Pet Food Pantry can be mailed to PO Box 1232, Leonardtown, MD 20650. Please note that the donation is designated for the SMAWL Pet Food Pantry.
