NORFOLK, Va. - PETA announces it will donated 100 bags of dog and cat food to the Foodbank of Southeastern Virginia and the Eastern Shore.

PETA says they are accepting donations in Norfolk where people can drop off new, sealed bags of animal food.

The donation box is outside the Sam Simon Center, located at 501 Front Street.

PETA will deliver all donations it receives to the food bank or directly to animal guardians who are struggling as a result of COVID-19 layoffs and closures.

"Animals depend on us to take care of them, and times of crisis are no exception," says PETA Senior Vice President Daphna Nachminovitch. "As long as there are cats and dogs out there who need help, PETA will do our best to assist guardians who have fallen on hard times. Anyone who wants to help can make a world of difference simply by contributing some kibble."
