The Fayetteville Animal Protection Society is partnering with Tarheel K9-5 Training and Bright Light Brewing Company to host a pet food drive next month.

FAPS is collecting canned and dry dog food, cat food and treats for the No Empty Bowl Project, the shelter said in a statement this week

“The holidays can cause financial stress on many people in our community, and no one should have to choose between feeding their pet and feeding their family,” FAPS Executive Director Jackie Stickley said in the statement. “The people we will be serving are battling a variety of issues, including chronic illness, job loss, domestic abuse and disability.”

The food drive will be from noon to 3 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 12, at Bright Light Brewing Company in downtown Fayetteville. 

Donations can be dropped off ahead of the food drive at the no-kill shelter, located at 3927 Bragg Blvd., from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday and 8 a.m. to noon Sunday and Monday. The shelter also has an Amazon Wish List for the food drive, and any food ordered through the link will be delivered directly to FAPS.
