The Furry Friends Food Bank helps low-income seniors and adults with disabilities in Penobscot, Piscataquis, Hancock, and Washington counties feed their pets.

Customers of Green Acres Kennel Shop will be asked for a donation when making purchases and donations will also be accepted by mail and online.

All funds raised will be used to buy pet food, at wholesale prices, for distribution by the Eastern Area Agency on Aging Furry Friends Food Bank.

Once the community donates $6000, Green Acres will donate an additional $2000. Due to the generosity of their clients and many others in the community, last year Green Acres' raised a total of $8195; this year's goal is $8000.
