Beesley to Host Pet Food Distribution Event

The free community event is intended to help pet owners facing financial hardship on Friday, Dec. 9.

Beesley Animal Foundation will host an Outreach Pet Food Distribution on Friday, December, 9 from 10 a.m. – noon at the Beesley Animal Foundation.

The drive-thru distribution event, held at 2215 Keeneland Commercial Blvd, Murfreesboro, is intended to help pet owners facing financial hardship. Beesley’s staff continues to hear from more and more individuals struggling to put food on their plates and food in their pet’s food bowls.

In addition to Beesley’s regular Outreach Program, they will be holding this Pet Food Distribution thanks to a grant from Purple Paws and other individual donations.

Beesley will be distributing 3-5 pounds of pet food per pet which will hopefully provide some relief for these pet owners at a time when budgets are stressed even further. Volunteers from Central Magnet School have hundreds of pounds of pet food packed for this drive-thru distribution on Friday, December 9.

Things to know:

  • Outreach Pet Food Distribution is drive-thru at Beesley Animal Foundation (2215 Keeneland Commercial Blvd, Murfreesboro) from 10am-noon on Friday, December 9th while supplies last
  • Beesley Animal Foundation will provide pet food for up to 4 household pets (cats and dogs)
  • Pet Food will be a mixture of wet and dry food
  • When you arrive you will be asked for an ID and a few questions about your pet(s)

While Beesley will do its best to meet all needs, the Outreach Program is funded exclusively by donations and therefore distribution amounts cannot be guaranteed.
