Seattle Humane Society's Pet Food Bank helps people hang onto their pets in tough times and reduces the number of animals surrendered to the shelter.
"When low-income seniors, people disabled by AIDS and families suffering from a job loss contact us for help feeding and caring for their pets, we are there for them, too," wrote David Lowe, SHS Executive Director, in the Society's fall newsletter.
The Pet Food Bank feeds more than 1,500 pets in need every month. More than 11,000 pounds of food every month is delivered to local senior centers, low-income housing complexes, food banks, and individual homes.
GreaterGood.org supports this and similar programs across the United States through the Gifts That Give More [tm] program and contributions from The Animal Rescue Site. To learn more about this Gift, please click here.
