BURLINGAME (CBS SF) – A pet food bank has been created for San Mateo County pet owners facing financial hardship or considered at high risk for the novel coronavirus in San Mateo County, the Peninsula Humane Society said Friday.

“We all know that the COVID-19 pandemic is both a health and a financial crisis, and PHS/SPCA has programs in place to help pets and their owners impacted in both of those ways,” said Buffy Martin Tarbox, the organization’s communications manager.

County residents who shouldn’t leave their homes can contact the organization and arrange for a delivery, Tarbox said.
