A Food Drive for Pets
Stephen Huneck’s studio hosts

When times are tough, many families struggle, and often all members of the household face difficulties, regardless of species. Much as we wish it weren’t so, many well-loved pets suffer during hard economic times. To help ease these troubles, the Dog Chapel on Dog Mountain is sponsoring a holiday pet food drive in St. Johnsbury, Vt., through Dec. 23. Food will be distributed to local food shelves and shelters.

The host of this pet food drive is the studio of the late artist Stephen Huneck, whose work focused on dogs. Huneck’s legacy goes beyond his art and extends to the kindness he long showed to his community. His body of work is a joy to dog lovers and his charitable contributions, both before his death and after, make life better for people and animals alike.

Does your community have opportunities to give and receive food assistance for pets?
