AWLQAC is always happy to receive unopened pet food. It is best to donate name-brand food items such as the types you can purchase at your local grocery store or pet food store. Most of our clients are elderly and appreciate smaller bags because it is easier for them to lift and manage. All food items must be new, other items can be gently used.
