MILWAUKEE — To help people affected financially by COVID-19 and the Safer at Home restrictions, the Milwaukee Area Domestic Animal Control Commission (MADACC) is hosting a drive-thru pet food pantry. Cat food, cat litter, and dog food will be distributed.

The event was made possible by a grant from the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) and in collaboration with The Pabst Theater Group, the Turner Ballroom, Pet Supplies Plus Greenfield, and the Milwaukee Bucks.

The event takes place Thursday, April 30, from 12-2 p.m. in the Turner Ballroom parking lot, located at 1040 Vel R. Phillips Ave, Milwaukee, WI 53203. MADACC asks all recipients to wait in their cars to be served, as wait times may vary depending on volume.

Wet and dry cat food, dry dog food, and unscented, clumping litter will be available. Supplies are limited.

MADACC and HSUS hope that people that have been adversely affected by layoffs and shutdowns, particularly in the service industry, will feel welcome at this event.
