For many, summer means garage sale season, but sadly, not as many sales are happening this year thanks to the darn COVID.

Ready for some good news? A BIG garage sale is happening next weekend in Rockford, AND it will feature a whole bunch of pet items you can get for your fur baby on the cheap!

Next Friday, July 24, and Saturday, July 25 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. a garage sale benefitting Rockford's Kibble Korner Pet Food Pantry will be happening at 7638 Creek Bend, (the condos located behind Woodman's).

As every good garage sale should, it will feature kitchenware, household, knick-knacks, and holiday items up for grabs, but it will also have a bunch of pet items like;

  • Dog and cat food and treats
  • Pet toys
  • Fish and bird items
  • Collars and leashes
  • Cat scratchers
  • Pet beds...and more!

Organizers of this garage sale say hand sanitizer will be available and they will doing their absolute best to follow social distancing guidelines.

Just one more FYI for ya; if you're out running errands this weekend, please consider picking up some extra bags of dry cat food to donate. Kibble Korner Pet Food Pantry has posted an urgent plea for help due to a majorly increased number of people who need help feeding their cats.

Here's the list of Stateline locations you can drop your cat food donations off at...
