We all care about our pets. But sometimes upkeep can be a little steep – which is why free pet supplies like dog food samples and vitamins are awesome.
Some freebies are always available and there’s no rush, while others are only available for a limited time. All you have to do is ask! (And if you download the KCL app, we’ll let you know when any pop up.)
From free dog food to pet supplements, treats, and more, here are some pet freebies available right now:
