No Dogs Left Behind is a long-time partner of the PSPCA and recognizes the role animals play in healing, stress-relieving, and bringing love into the lives of military service members.
“We are proud to partner with No Dog Gets Left Behind to help fill the gaps in pet resources for Veterans and Active Military Personnel,” said Mandy Hood, Community Outreach Manager for the PSPCA. “There has always been a need for access to pet food, and this pandemic has only increased that need. Through this partnership we are proud to help keep pets happy and healthy in the homes.”
