Donations being collected for nonprofit Pets of the Homeless

Carson Properties is accepting donations of pet food and supplies year round on behalf of the national nonprofit Pets of the Homeless.

The business, at 187 Sonoma St., Carson City, will amass the donations before they're given to local food banks, homeless shelters or homeless encampments.

Pets of the Homeless is a national effort to regularly supply donated pet food to local people who cannot afford to properly provide for their pets.

It is estimated that one in four homeless and disadvantaged people have a pet. Through Pets of the Homeless, more than 16,265 pets have been medically treated, and 500 tons of pet food collected and distributed.
