A local pet shelter is lending a helping hand to struggling pet owners who are financially impacted by the coronavirus pandemic.

Summit County's Nuzzles and Co. is making sure pets are being cared for, even if their owners get laid off and can no longer afford them.

Families living in Summit, Salt Lake, Utah and Davis Counties can pick-up free pet food and litter at specific locations.
