The Peninsula Pet Pantry header

The Peninsula Pet Pantry also serves the Middle Peninsula, and has changed their name to reflect this. The Pet Castle is the very first business on the Middle Peninsula to serve as both a drop–off point and a pick–up point. Donations can be made during our normal business hours every day. For pick–up, visit their website at, and follow the instructions to register. Pick ups will be the 2nd and 4th Sundays of each month, from 2p.m. until 4p.m. The first scheduled pick–up date will be Sunday, September 25th.
