Burns to host Pet Food Drive in April

EBENSBURG, March 31 – In support of ‘Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Month’ next month, state Rep. Frank Burns will host his annual Pet Food Drive throughout the month of April.

“Unfortunately, many animals in Pennsylvania wind up in shelters because of abuse or neglect, or because they simply don’t have a home,” Burns said. “As shelters fill up, it becomes costly to feed and take care of the animals, and this drive can help.”

Those interested in donating non-perishable pet-food items may drop off their items at either of following constituent offices:

  • 535 Fairfield Ave., Johnstown, 15906
  • 119 S. Center St., Ebensburg, 15931

Local elementary schools will also participate in the collection of items; students may bring items to their classroom’s donation box.

Items collected will support Cambria County Humane Society.

Any questions can be directed to Burns’ office at 814-472-8021.
