Cat and dog food will be distributed first-come, first-serve, as supplies last to those in need or affected by COVID-19.

Social distancing and protective measures will be taken by all staff and the public is asked to do the same during the drive-thru pick-up. Masks are required to be worn during pick-up. Additional resources and supplies will also be available first-come, first-serve.

If a pet owner is in need of food but unable to attend the pick-up, please call or text the BRHS helpline at (828) 393-5832.
