Help Feed the Pets

The Animal Food Bank of The Lehigh Valley helps pet owners keep their animals when times get tough. Donated cat & dog food is distributed to those in need.  Next time you are shopping, please consider adding a bag of food to your cart.  The Knitter’s Edge is a collection point for The Animal Food Bank- you can drop it off here.  Cat Litter is always needed too.
