Nineteen dog and cat food pallets are scheduled to arrive at the Rancho Coastal Humane Society at 389 Requeza St. at Encinitas on Monday.
This will be distributed to non-profit rescue pet groups throughout the San Diego area. The food is donated through Rescue Bank® which is operated by Greater Good.org, a non-profit organization that supports animal rescue and rehabilitation groups by providing services and supplies.
RCHS President Judi Sanzo said, “This will give us more than 70,000 pounds since the COVID 19 crisis began. Under normal circumstances, rescue groups pay for shipments. Rescue Bank tells us the shipping costs have been paid. The food is absolutely free.”
RCHS spokesman John Van Zante said, “We expect more than 10,000 pounds of wet and dry dog food, wet cat food, and dog snacks. It takes about one hour to get the truck down. Our goal is to start distributing cat and dog food to 501 (c) (3) non-profit pet rescue groups Monday morning. “
Food will be distributed evenly among groups to help as many pets and organizations as possible.
There are about 200 rescue groups in San Diego County and all their animals deserve proper nutrition. Greater Good.org and the Rescue Bank trust the Rancho Coastal Humane Society to carry out their intentions and help feed animals waiting to be adopted.

Pet food is scheduled to leave San Bernardino on Monday morning. Arrival at RCHS is expected before noon. It takes one to two hours to unload trucks and arrange food. Distribution will start after that. Rescue is reminded to NOT block the entrance so the truck can enter the parking lot.
Rescuers’ representatives will remain in their vehicles. They must provide their 501 (c) (3) non-profit number. Food will be loaded into their vehicles by RCHS staff and volunteers.
