Marley's Mutts is gathering and delivering dog food to pet owners throughout the county in-need during the coronavirus.
Zach Skow, the founder of Marley's Mutts, said that for the past three weeks the organization has been doing its best to secure dog thousands of pounds of dog food for the community. The nonprofit created form where residents could buy dog food to be delivered, and another form where residents could write why they were in-need.
According to Skow, some residents said they were so in-need, they were feeding their dogs trash, cat food, or even letting their dogs out to scavenge for food.
Skow said they have already distributed more than 200 bags to over 70 families throughout all of Kern County. These distributions made possible in-part by Motor City, who loaned Marley's Mutts vehicles for the delivers.
This week Marley's Mutts plans to make even more deliveries. Skow said deliveries are planned for Wednesday and Thursday. Anyone interested in helping can find more information here.
