LEE COUNTY, Fla. - The dog days of summer are winding down and one Lee County restaurant is celebrating by giving back to man's best friend. Lee County Domestic Animal Services is distributing more than 2,000 pounds of dog food to it's pet pantry.

Angelina's in Bonita Springs has been running a program called "The Dog Days of Summer." During July and August, every Wednesday a portion of each bill went to buy dog food to be donated to the pet pantry.

Animal services recently launched its quarterly pet food drive to provide food to families who can't afford to feed their animals. It's completely funded by the community and today's donation means dozens of pets will be able to stay in their loving homes.

BJ's also partnered with the program and is responsible for providing the food and bringing it over to animal services today.
