Hearts Alive Village has expanded their Kendall’s Kupboard pet food bank to become the Disaster Distribution Center for the state of Nevada, thanks to food donations from GreaterGood.org and a grant for space and equipment from the Dave and Cheryl Duffield Foundation.

This local distribution of pet food is part of a multi-million dollar nationwide donation effort that GreaterGood.org is executing to help pet communities across the United States impacted most by the coronavirus outbreak.

Pictographics, a local business that has supported Hearts Alive Village since the beginning donated space for storage until the rescue can take possession of a warehouse currently in negotiation.

On April 8, the first delivery arrived with 19 pallets (approximately 37,000 lbs.) of food. Local nonprofits, including Street Dogz, Homeward Bound, Animal Network, and Animal Help Alliance, have already received approximately 10,000 lbs. of food and more are being contacted now to assess their needs.

Individuals can enroll to receive pet food through at http://www.heartsalivevillage.org/.

An appointment will be scheduled and “drive thru” distribution will protect staff, volunteers, and recipients.
