At each event, one-gallon bag of dog or cat food per pet will be given to participants. Limit one participant per household for up three cats and/or dogs per household. (LAMC 53.50).

To ensure the safety of our staff and volunteers, social distancing will be observed and face coverings will be required of participants when picking up the pet food.
