Lockdown is tough for everyone, and some Melburnians are struggling to put food on the table – and in their pet's bowl. Second Chance Animal Rescue is running a drive-through pet food pantry to make sure all the puppers and moggies in Melbourne get through this difficult time. 

The pantry will be open from 8.30am to 10am on July 30, and from 10am to noon on August 1, 8, 15, 20 and 22 at the shelter at 23 Grasslands Avenue, Craigieburn. Staff will be wearing full protective equipment and will bring whatever pet food you need to your car. Please wear a mask. 

The shelter is also running kerbside vet appointments, so if your animal needs some TLC you can get care without getting out of your car. 

You can make a tax-deductible donation to the shelter to help support initiatives like the pet food pantry. 

Need more pet content? This animal shelter has launched a platform for sharing cat videos. You're welcome, and sorry to your boss.
