“Berkeley Humane works every day to provide help for the most vulnerable pet owners/guardians in our community – and help keep pets out of the public shelter system,” said Jeffrey Zerwekh, Executive Director of Berkeley Humane. “We know that when a family must choose between feeding themselves and feeding their pet, they will make sure their pet has food. Our Pet Food Pantry bridges that gap for hundreds of families in the area.”
